Someone who purchased a ticket in northern Missouri is now the next Missouri Lottery-made millionaire. One Lotto ticket purchased at Snappy Store, 501 N. College Ave. in Princeton, matched all six numbers drawn to win the $2.8 million jackpot prize on Oct. 5. The ticket contained the winning number combination of: 4, 11, 17, 27, 31 and 33.
“If you’re the player lucky enough to be holding this $2.8 million ticket, you should sign the back of it immediately, and keep it in a safe place until you can come to one of our four Lottery offices to claim your prize,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “We’re excited to meet you.”
Lotto winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until April 12, 2012. Missouri Lottery offices are located in Jefferson City, Kansas City, St. Louis and Springfield. Maps to each office can be found on the Lottery’s website at Molottery.com.
This ticket marks the 208th Lotto jackpot winner since the game started in 1986.
