Our hearts are with the people of Joplin this morning. All of our employees in the area have been accounted for, and we are working to assess damage to the operations of local retailers. The Missouri Lottery sends well wishes for a speedy recovery for the region.
In other parts of the state, we have some good news to share about big winners. One ticket matched all six winning Lotto numbers Saturday night. Whoever holds the ticket, sold at U-Gas Interstate in Pacific, has claim to the $1.1 million jackpot. If you buy gas and tickets in Pacific, you could be a millionaire. Check those tickets closely.
The Powerball jackpot rolled, but two players in Missouri matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball to win $10,000. The winning tickets were sold at the following locations:
- Kum & Go, 2650 W. Sunshine St., in Springfield
- Break Time, 1410 Forum Blvd., in Columbia
