Missouri Powerball Player Wins $70 Million Jackpot on Independence Day; Ticket sold in St. Louis

Updated:
JEFFERSON CITY, MO -

Update:  The winning $70 million Powerball ticket from the Fourth of July drawing was sold at Gas Mart, 6901 Hampton Ave., in St. Louis.

“This location will receive a $50,000 bonus for selling the jackpot ticket,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery.

Reardon said, to date, no one has presented a claim for the state’s ninth-largest prize.

“The best thing the winner can do is get professional tax and legal advice before they claim the prize,” Reardon added. “Once they’ve made a decision on the best way for them to claim, they should take the signed ticket to our headquarters in Jefferson City.”

Reardon said this winner has until Dec. 31 to claim the prize.

The winning numbers from the drawing were:  3, 6, 14, 18, 24 and the Powerball number was 21.

One Powerball player in Missouri can now celebrate their financial independence after matching all six numbers drawn Saturday night, July 4, to win the $70 million jackpot. They will become the owner of the ninth largest jackpot prize ever won in Missouri. The winning numbers were:  3-6-14-18-24, and the Powerball number was 21.

“If you find you hold the winning jackpot ticket, be sure to sign the back and put it in a safe place until you can take it to Missouri Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “Winners can also call Lottery headquarters to make arrangements to claim the prize.

“We want the winner to take his or her time in getting the proper legal and financial advice before they come to our headquarters,” Reardon added. “It is also wise to tell as few people as possible at first, so you have uninterrupted time to make these important decisions.”

The Missouri winner has180 days to claim the prize, which would give him or her until Dec. 31, 2015.  The jackpot winner can get the jackpot prize in 30 graduated annuity payments or in one lump-sum payment. If no choice is made in 60 days, the jackpot is automatically paid in 30 payments.

The last time a Powerball jackpot was won in Missouri was Nov. 8, 2014, when a woman from Dallas, Texas, claimed a jackpot prize worth $202.6 with a ticket she bought at Union Station in St. Louis, while on a trip to Missouri. To date, Missouri has sold the second-most Powerball jackpot tickets of all of the Powerball members with a total of 31.
