“If you buy Powerball tickets at this location, please find them and check them closely,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery.  “If you find you’re holding the winning ticket, be sure you sign the back and put it in a safe place until you can take it to a Missouri Lottery office.  You will also want to get some legal and financial advice before you claim.”


The Missouri winner has 180 days to claim this prize, which in this case is May 27, 2013.  The winner can select to get the jackpot prize in 30 payments over 29 years (annuity) or in one lump-sum payment worth approximately $192.3 million before taxes.  If no choice is made in 60 days, the jackpot is automatically paid in 30 payments.


Trex Mart will also receive a bonus check for $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.
