O'FALLON, Mo. — Check your Powerball tickets!
Someone in the St. Louis area won a $1 million prize by matching all five white-ball numbers in Saturday night's Powerball drawing. The winner purchased the ticket at Circle K, located at 602 N. Main Street in O'Fallon, Missouri.
The winning combination was 14, 20, 39, 65 and 67. The Powerball number was 2.
Another lottery player in Missouri won $50,000 by matching four of the five white-ball numbers, plus the Powerball number. That ticket was bought in Salisbury.
No one matched all six numbers in Saturday's drawing, which means the Powerball jackpot has grown even bigger to $730 million. That's the fourth largest amount in the game's history and the biggest it's been since March 2019. The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday night.
The Mega Millions jackpot also keeps climbing after no winners since last September. Tuesday's jackpot is an estimated $850 million — the second largest in the game's history, behind its record $1.537 billion in October 2018.
“This is the first time that both Powerball and Mega Millions have simultaneously offered jackpots of more than $700 million each,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “It certainly creates a lot of excitement around the games, and we want to remind everyone that it only takes one ticket to win. So please play responsibly.”
Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize so in this case, they have until July 15. Prizes can be claimed, by appointment only, at any lottery office. Offices are located in St. Louis, Jefferson City and Springfield.
