Nov. 18, 2014 – The Missouri Lottery announced Monday that the winner of a $202.6 million Powerball jackpot had claimed her prize less than 10 days after hitting the jackpot.
Marilyn Boldon was the lucky ticket holder who matched the six winning numbers drawn Sat., Nov. 8. Those numbers were 9, 19, 33, 38, 54 and the Powerball was 15.
Boldon bought her ticket from Gateway Newstands, located at Union Station, 1820 Market St. in St. Louis.
That’s a long way from home for the big winner; Boldon is from Dallas, Texas, nearly 700 miles south of the retailer.
Boldon has her choice between the full jackpot amount, paid out over about 30 years, or the one-time, lump sum cash payment, worth about $127 million.
And she isn’t the only lucky winner with this jackpot – Gateway Newstands will also receive a $50,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket.
The big win marks the thirtieth Powerball jackpot won in Missouri, the second-most of any state. According to a Missouri Lottery press release, Powerball jackpot winners have won more than $2.16 million.
