Winning $1.2 Million Lottery Ticket Sold in Lee’s Summit, Missouri

(STL.News) – A Missouri Lottery player who bought a Lotto ticket at Temp Stop, 100 S.E. Todd George Parkway in Lee’s Summit, matched all six numbers drawn in Wednesday night’s drawing to win a $1.2 million jackpot prize.  The ticket holder became the Lottery’s 530th millionaire winner with the winning number combination of 12, 18, 19, 28, 32 and 42.

“Are you holding the winning ticket? If you bought a Lotto ticket in Lee’s Summit for last night’s drawing, please check it carefully,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery.  “Tickets can be scanned on the Missouri Lottery’s official app or at Check-A-Ticket machines at retail to see if your ticket is a winner.”

Reardon also encouraged the winner to sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until they’re ready to claim their prize. Lottery offices are located in Kansas City, Jefferson City, Springfield and St. Louis.

Draw Games winners have exactly 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.  In this case, the winner has until March 23, 2020.  If claimed within 60 days, the ticket holder may choose between two claiming options: receiving the prize in one lump-sum payment, which is approximately half of the advertised jackpot; or receiving the full amount in 25 annual payments.  If the player has not chosen within 60 days, payment automatically defaults to the annuity option.

The jackpot now resets to $1 million for Saturday’s drawing.
