One very lucky grocery shopper bagged a $4.7 million Missouri Lottery prize on Oct. 12. St. Louis County resident Sandra Cockson purchased a Quick Pick Lotto ticket from Shop ‘n Save, 1144 Meramec Station Road in Ballwin, and she matched all six numbers drawn. The winning numbers were: 13, 16, 17, 25, 29 and 39.
Lotto is a twice weekly Draw Game with jackpots that start at $1 million and grow until someone wins. Drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8:59 p.m. Winners have the option of taking their prize in one lump sum (approximately half of the advertised jackpot) or as annuity (annual payments spread out over 25 years). Cockson, the games 221st jackpot winner, elected to receive her windfall in one lump sum.
