Three Missouri Powerball purchasers win $1 million each
ST. LOUIS (AP) - None of the three winners in the Wednesday Powerball drawing bought tickets in Missouri, but three people who did each won a pretty nice consolation prize.
Missouri Lottery officials said Thursday that three people matched all five white-ball numbers - 11, 13, 25, 39 and 54 - but not the Powerball. All three won $1 million.
The winning tickets were sold at Gas Mart II in St. Louis, Spanky's Sports Bar in Raytown and Warrenton Fast Lane in Warrenton.
Ten other Missouri purchasers matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball to win $10,000 each.
The winners have 180 days to claim their prizes, until August 10.
The three Powerball-winning tickets were sold in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas.
