One person who bought a lottery ticket in Mid-Missouri is now a millionaire.
According to Missouri Lottery officials, one ticket sold at the Quick Run store on Highway 65 in Marshall is worth $1 million. The ticket matched all five white-ball numbers in the drawing Wednesday night.
The winning numbers are: 9, 29, 40, 44 and 54.
“Last night was a good night for Missouri Powerball players,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “In addition to the ticket sold in Marshall, another ticket worth $1 million was sold at a Trex Mart in Weston.”
The winner has 180 days to claim his or her prize. That means, the winner has until Jan. 20, 2014 to claim the $1 million at a Missouri Lottery office in Kansas City, Springfield, Jefferson City or St. Louis.
