Three Powerball players in Missouri woke up $100,000 richer this morning after matching all five white balls drawn in last night’s record drawing.   Thousands of Missouri Lottery players won prizes from $3 to $100,000 in last night’s drawing, totaling more than $1.5 million.

“Don’t discard your tickets if you see you don’t have all six numbers,” said Gary Gonder, director of communications for the Missouri Lottery.  “There are eight other ways to win a prize in Powerball.”

The three $100,000 prizes were sold at:  Convenient Food Mart, 1750 O’Fallon Road in St. Charles; Parkside Mini Mart, Highway 47 & 147 in Troy; and Break Time, 104 Main in Concordia.

“Around $12.1 million was generated for public education from Powerball sales during this run,” said Gonder.
