More than two million players nationwide will share approximately $29 million in Mega Millions prize money from Tuesday’s drawing, including two Missouri players who each won $250,000. The two tickets – which matched all five white-ball numbers drawn on March 20 – were purchased at Parkside Mini Mart, 942 E. Highway 47 in Troy, and QuikTrip, 6312 S. Lindbergh in St. Louis.
The winning number combination was: 1, 4, 6, 11, 14 and 30.
The tickets mark the 18th and 19th times a Missouri Mega Millions player has won the $250,000 prize since the game started here in January 2010.
The Missouri Lottery urges the holders of these tickets to sign the back of them right away and keep them in a safe place until the prize can be claimed at a Lottery office.
Mega Millions winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winners have until Sept. 16. Missouri Lottery offices are located in St. Louis, Kansas City, Jefferson City and Springfield.
