Missouri Players, Education Win in Mega Millions Jackpot Run

A Missouri player may not have won a piece of the $648 million jackpot, but thousands of others benefited from the high jackpot by winning $812,212 in prizes.

“Like always, the real winner in these big jackpot runs is Missouri’s public education,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “Public education will be getting approximately $5.9 million from Mega Millions sales during this jackpot run alone.”

Reardon said players should always check their tickets carefully, since there are eight other prizes, besides the jackpot, in the game.

“Checking your tickets is easy,” she said. “Just take them to any retail location and use the Check-A-Ticket machine to see if you won a prize. You can also get the numbers on the Missouri Lottery’s website at MOLottery.com.”

Mega Millions players in Missouri have 180 days to claim a prize, which in this case would be June 15, 2014.

Eleven players in Missouri matched four white-ball numbers and the Mega Ball number to win $5,000, and two more players added the Megaplier to turn that prize into $20,000. Last night’s big prizes were sold at:
