Check your tickets: Two St. Louis area lotto players hit million-dollar jackpots


ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The MegaMillions and PowerBall jackpots hit historic highs last week. Unfortunately, no one from Missouri won the billion-dollar MegaMillions jackpot on Friday night. The $731 million Powerball jackpot was claimed by a person from Maryland.

Two people playing the Missouri Lottery over the weekend are now millionaires. The winning tickets were sold in St. Louis and O’Fallon and players have 180 days to claim their prize at one of the Lottery’s offices.

A MegaMillions player in St. Louis matched all five white-ball numbers drawn on Friday night. A Powerball player in O’Fallon also won $1 million in Saturday night’s drawing.

The Mega Millions ticket was sold at Schnucks, 12756 Olive Blvd. in St. Louis, with the winning number combination of 4, 26, 42, 50 and 60. (The Mega Ball number was 24.)

The Powerball ticket was sold at Dirt Cheap, 102 McDonald Lane in O’Fallon, and matched the night’s winning numbers of 5, 8, 17, 27 and 28. (The Powerball number was 14.)

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
