Same Store Sells Winning Lotto Ticket for Third Time

ST. LOUIS — A south St. Louis QuikTrip store is proving lucky for Missouri Lotto players.

For the third time, the store at 8205 Gravois has sold a winning Lotto jackpot ticket, the Missouri Lottery said Monday. The most recent winning ticket sold for the April 9 Lotto drawing matched winning numbers 13, 14, 15, 17, 39 and 42, and is worth $1.3 million.

“This is one lucky location,” said Gary Gonder, spokesman for the Missouri Lottery.
