JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KTVI) – A Mega Millions ticket sold in Missouri matched all six numbers for the $25 million July 31 drawing.
This is the first Mega Millions jackpot ticket to be sold in Missouri. The exact location of the sale was not disclosed.
The winning numbers were: 28, 32, 33, 40, 46, and the Mega Ball number was 10.
May Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery, said the winner should sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe, secure location until they’re able to bring it to the Missouri Lottery Headquarters in Jefferson City to claim the prize.
