A total of 45 winning tickets worth $1 million or more were purchased by Missouri Lottery players last year.

“It’s pretty exciting to realize we averaged a new millionaire every 8.1 days last year,” said Lester Elder, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “It was a big year for our players.”

Of those winners, 26 came from Scratchers tickets with prizes that ranged from $1 million to $5 million. The remaining were machine drawing games from Powerball, Mega Millions, Missouri Lotto, and Cash4Life. The prizes ranged from $1 million to $4.5 million.
