Too late: Lottery ticket worth $3.5 million goes unclaimed
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A $3.5 million Lotto prize sold in eastern Missouri in November has now expired, and two other unclaimed prizes purchased in Missouri are set to expire soon, too.
The Missouri Lottery says someone purchased the winning $3.5 million Lotto ticket on Nov. 12 at Hermann Fuel Mart. The period to claim the prize expired at midnight Friday. The unclaimed prize money goes to a fund that benefits public education.
