Two Missouri Lotto players are $850,000 richer.
Missouri Lotto players who bought tickets at Casey’s, on St. Joe Drive in Park Hills, and at Casey’s in Columbia matched all six numbers drawn for the March 12 drawing — 1, 8, 17, 23, 27 and 37 — to win a share of the jackpot.
The jackpot was worth $1.7 million, so each of the two winning tickets is worth $850,000.
“If you buy Lotto tickets at either of these locations, please check them closely,” said Susan Goedde, communications manager for the Missouri Lottery.
Lotto winners have exactly 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until Aug. 11.
If you discover you hold the winning ticket, sign the back of it and take it to a Missouri Lottery office.
Offices are located in Kansas City, Jefferson City, St. Louis and Springfield. There have been 174 winning Missouri Lotto jackpot tickets sold since the game began in 1986.
