Missouri Lottery Player Wins $1,000 A Day For Life

Update:  Monday morning Missouri Lottery Media Release

Sedalia Supermarket Sells Lottery Ticket Worth $1,000 a Day for Life

A Lucky for Life ticket sold at Woods Supermarket, 1400 S. Limit Ave. in Sedalia, matched all five white-ball numbers and the Lucky Ball number drawn on June 18 to win the game’s top prize – $1,000 a day for life!

The winning numbers were:  1, 6, 16, 27 and 34, and the Lucky Ball was 2.

The winner has yet to claim their prize at Missouri Lottery headquarters in Jefferson City. All Draw Games winners have exactly 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize. In this case, the winner has until Dec. 15.

The ticket holder may choose between two claiming options:  1) the annuitized prize value weekly for life, minus taxes; or 2) one lump-sum payment that is approximately one-half of the advertised prize, minus taxes.  The lump-sum cash payment is about half the advertised prize amount since the winner immediately collects the money the Lottery would have invested during their lifetime.

*********************************

The Missouri Lottery enthusiastically urges all Lucky for Life players to check their tickets from Thursday night’s drawing.  A lucky ticket sold in the state matched all five white-ball numbers drawn, plus the Lucky Ball number, to win the game’s top prize – $1,000 a Day for Life! Last night’s winning numbers were 1, 6, 16, 27 and 34, and the Lucky Ball number was 2.

“We’re thrilled to have our first “$1,000-a-day-for-life winner,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “This ‘For Life’ winner joins 13 other Missouri Lottery players who have won $25,000 a year for life since Lucky for Life sales began here in 2015.”

Players can check their tickets by scanning them on the Lottery’s mobile app or on Check-A-Ticket machines at retail.

“If you have the winning ticket, be sure to sign the back and put it in a safe place before making your appointment to take it to Missouri Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City,” Reardon added. “We also encourage you to take the time to get professional tax or legal advice.”

Per Lottery policy, information regarding the name and location of the retailer that sold the winning top-prize ticket will be made available within 72 hours, or after the winner has come forward and completed the claiming process – whichever occurs first.

An additional Missouri player matched the five white-ball numbers drawn last night to win the second-level prize of $25,000 a year for life.

These winners have 180 days to claim their prize, which in this case is Dec. 15.
