JEFFERSON CITY— A Missouri Lotto player is $1.9 million richer.

Lottery officials said Thursday that the winning ticket was sold at a QuikTrip in St. Charles. The buyer for Wednesday's game matched the winning combination — 6, 19, 30, 32, 39 and 44 — to win the jackpot.

The winner had not come forward by mid-morning Thursday. Lottery spokeswoman Susan Goedde said the holder of the winning ticket should sign the back of it and put it in a safe place until it can be brought to a Lottery office.

Lotto winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.

There have been 187 winning Missouri Lotto jackpot tickets sold since the game began in 1986.
