Missouri lottery players awarded $2.8M in Powerball

MISSOURI (KFVS) -

In Missouri, more than 429,587 ticket holders won a combined $2.8 million Wednesday night in a record setting Powerball drawing.

The Missouri Lottery reports 15 tickets won $50,000. That means the player's numbers matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball.

Lottery officials encourage everyone who played to check their tickets closely.

“There’s a good chance you might have won one of the game’s other prizes,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery.

The 15 tickets that won $50,000 were sold at:

  • QuikTrip, 11444 St. Charles Rock Road, in Bridgeton
  • Break Time, 2205 N. Stadium Drive, in Columbia
  • Phil-Mart, 500 S. Main St., in Salem
  • Union Star Station, 9031 Highway 169, in Union Star
  • QuikTrip, 4750 Highway K, in O’Fallon
  • Kum & Go, 130 Old Route 66, in St. Robert
  • Trex Mart, 17605 Highway Z, in Dearborn
  • S & B Liquors, 3320 E. Highway 54, in El Dorado Springs
  • U.S. Oil, 200 S. Connecticut St., in King City
  • Price Chopper, 5800 Wilson Road, in Kansas City
  • St. Charles Quick Shop, 2010 Campus Drive in St. Charles
  • Break Time, 1000 W. College, in Marshall
  • Kum & Go, 2930 S. National Ave., in Springfield
  • Shell, 7905 E. 171st St., in Belton
  • The Filling Station, 27 Route O, in Southwest City

Missouri businesses also earned more than $3 million from selling Powerball tickets during this run. 

The money from the Powerball goes to Missouri education. More than $60.8 million in Powerball tickets were sold during this jackpot run, which means that approximately $23.5 million from Powerball sales alone will go to public education programs.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
