JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Lottery officials say someone who purchased a Powerball ticket in St. Louis for the Fourth of July drawing has won the $70 million jackpot.

Lottery spokeswoman May Scheve Reardon says that as of Wednesday, nobody has come forward to claim what is the state’s ninth-largest lottery prize.

The winning ticket was sold at a St. Louis Gas Mart, which will receive a $50,000 bonus for selling the jackpot winner.

Reardon encourages the winner to get professional tax and legal advice before taking the signed ticket to lottery headquarters in Jefferson City.

She says the winner has until Dec. 31 to claim the prize.

The winning numbers from the drawing were: 3, 6, 14, 18, 24 and the Powerball number was 21.
