The Missouri Lottery player who bought a $5.5 million winning Lotto ticket at Shop ’n Save in Maplewood has yet to come forward to claim his or her prize! A single Lotto ticket sold at the 7355 Manchester Road location for the April 14 drawing matched all six numbers drawn – 11, 23, 28, 34, 36 and 43 – to win the jackpot prize.
"Missouri Lottery players who purchase Lotto tickets at this Shop ‘n Save should make sure they pull out their tickets and check them closely," said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “If you’re the lucky player with the winning ticket, please sign the back of it and keep it in a safe place until you can bring it to a Lottery office to claim your jackpot.”
Lotto winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until Oct. 11, 2010.
Missouri Lottery offices are located in St. Louis, Jefferson City, Kansas City and Springfield. Maps to each office can be found on the Lottery’s Web site at Molottery.com.
There have been 196 winning Missouri Lotto jackpot tickets sold since the game began in 1986.
