Lotto ticket from St. Louis yields big win
If you purchased a Show Me Cash lotto ticket at Metropolitan Newstands downtown yesterday, check your numbers - you could be $775,000 richer.
The Missouri Lottery says someone who bought a ticket at the store (it's located inside the One Metropolitan Building) matched all five numbers - 11, 17, 19, 27 and 39. The jackpot is the second-highest ever for the Show Me Cash game - two St. Louis-area linemen claimed the largest prize in December.
If you won? Missouri Lottery executive director May Scheve Reardon says sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until you can claim your prize at a Lottery office.
