Someone who bought a Missouri Lotto ticket in Hermann may be a millionaire and not even know it. It’s been nearly two months since someone matched all six numbers drawn in the Nov. 12 drawing, and the winner has yet to come forward to claim the $3.5 million prize.
The winning ticket – with the number combination of 10, 17, 26, 28, 36 and 43 – was purchased at Hermann Fuel Mart, 115 B Highway 19, in Hermann.
“We usually hear from our Lotto winners pretty quickly,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “We urge anyone who bought a ticket at Hermann Fuel Mart – maybe a local resident, maybe someone just passing through town – to check your tickets closely. We wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on a prize like this.”
Draw Game winners, including those who play Lotto, have exactly 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until May 11, 2017. Prizes can be claimed at any of the Lottery’s four offices, which are located in St. Louis, Jefferson City, Springfield and Kansas City.
This Saturday’s Lotto jackpot sits at an estimated $2.5 million.
