Mega Millions Consolation Prizes in Missouri
ST. LOUIS (AP) – Missouri players are not among the big winners in last week’s record Mega Millions drawing, but some received nice consolation prizes.
Three players shared the record $656 million jackpot, including people from two neighboring states, Illinois and Kansas. The third winner is from Maryland.
The Missouri Lottery said Monday that one Missouri player won $250,000 by matching all five white-ball numbers in the Mega Million drawing. That ticket was purchased at a U-Gas in Cedar Hill.
Thirteen others in Missouri won $10,000 each by matching the Mega ball and four white-ball numbers.
Mega Millions players in Missouri have 180 days to claim a prize in this case, until Sept. 26.
