TWO TICKETS MATCH TO SHARE $4 MILLION JACKPOT
Two Missouri Lotto ticket holders may still be seeing fireworks after matching all six numbers in last night’s "Fourth of July" Lotto drawing to share the $4 million jackpot prize. The two tickets were sold at: 7-Eleven, 703 Union Road in St. Louis; and Don’s Stateline Store, Highway 71 in Pineville. The winning numbers are: 2, 9, 15, 27, 37 and 44.
So far, no one has come forward to claim the prize.
The winners have 60 days from the drawing to decide if they would like the prize in one cash payment worth approximately $1 million each before taxes or the annuitized payment of approximately $80,000 a piece each year for the next 25 years, before taxes.
In addition to the two Lotto tickets, a Powerball ticket sold in Missouri for last night’s drawing is worth $100,000. That ticket was sold at Fruitland D-Mart Citgo in Jackson. The winning numbers are: 3, 25, 26, 28 and 30.
If you think you might have one of the winning tickets, sign the back of your ticket and put it in a safe place until you can turn it in at one of the Lottery’s four offices in St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield and Jefferson City.
