More than 150,000 ticket holders in Missouri won more than $2.8 million in prizes in Saturday night’s record Powerball jackpot, including two tickets sold that matched all five white-ball numbers to win the $1 million second-level prize.
“We urge players to check their tickets closely,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “There’s a chance you might have won one of the games eight other prizes.”
Reardon said one very important Missouri winner from this drawing is public education.
“We sold more than $26.3 million in Powerball tickets during this jackpot run, and that means approximately $10.2 million from Powerball sales alone will go to public education programs in Missouri.”
The current jackpot run began March 30.
The winning numbers from the May 18 drawing were: 10, 13, 14, 22, 52, and the Powerball number was 11. Players have exactly 180 days from the drawing, in this case Nov. 14, 2013, to claim these prizes.
The two tickets worth $1 million were sold at Sam’s Liquor & Convenience, 250 Kingston Drive, in St. Louis, and Hartland Pit Stop, Route 3, in Doniphan.
Five other winning tickets matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball to win the third-level prize of $10,000. One of those players used Power Play to turn the $10,000 prize into $40,000. Those tickets were sold at:
$40,000 – Beverly Hills Liquor & Grocery, 6714 Natural Bridge Road, Beverly Hills;
$10,000 – QuikTrip, 6312 S. Lindbergh, St. Louis;
$10,000 – Fast Lane, 1425 Jungs Station Road, St. Peters;
$10,000 – Break Time, 326 Ellis Blvd., Jefferson City;
$10,000 – Schnucks Market, 3029 Highway K, O’Fallon.
