Jefferson City, MO – The Missouri Lottery says only Powerball ticket that matched all numbers last night (Wednesday) was sold in St. Louis. That ticket is worth $224.2 million.

Specifically, it was sold at a QuikTrip in Florissant, at 2791 Dunn Road (near New Halls Ferry Road).

Lottery officials say it's the largest prize ever won in the Missouri Lottery's 20-year history and the seventh-largest Powerball jackpot ever awarded.

The winning combination is 16-26-34-35-41, and the Powerball number was 24.

The website for the Missouri Lottery advises big winners to sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, and stay calm while making "a few crucial decisions."

The Web site also advises winners not to tell anyone until they "sort a few things out." It also suggests getting professional advice on how to claim your prize.

Tickets that match the first five numbers, but miss the Powerball, win $200,000 each, and there were nine of those. They were sold in Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia.
