(KMOV.com) -- A Missouri Lottery winner, who purchased a ticket at a St. Louis gas station, matched all six numbers on the ticket worth $2.4 million.
The player purchased the winning ticket at the Mobil on the Run gas station at 9950 Big Bend Boulevard in St. Louis.
“What a great Thanksgiving weekend it must have been for this lucky Lottery player,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director for the Missouri Lottery. “It’s worth $2.4 million, so if you have this ticket, please sign the back of it right away, and be sure you keep it in a safe place until you can come claim your prize.”
Lottery officials have not said if the winner has come forward to claim the prize. According to Missouri Lottery rules, the winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the money. The numbers (2, 20, 22, 31, 33 and 37) were drawn on November 26th, so the lucky ticket holder has until May 24th, 2012 to claim the winnings.
The ticket marks the 209th Lotto jackpot winner since the game started in 1986.
