ST. LOUIS — A 50-year-old St. Peters man won $2.2 million in the Missouri Lottery.

James Abegg matched all six numbers in the April 26th Lotto drawing. The Missouri Lottery says Abegg bought the winning ticket at a Quick Mart in O’Fallon.

The convenience store will receive an incentive equal to 1 percent of the jackpot prize amount, or $22,000, for selling the winning ticket.

Abegg’s ticket was the 175th winning Lotto jackpot ticket and the 252nd Missouri Lottery jackpot ticket overall.
