Some lucky lottery player is holding a ticket worth $3.6 million that was purchased in suburban St. Louis.

The Missouri Lottery says the Lotto ticket from Wednesday's drawing matched all six numbers: 9, 15, 33, 35, 38 and 43. The ticket was purchased at Speedy Gas & Wash in Ballwin.

Lottery officials urged the holder of the ticket to sign the back and keep it in a safe place until claiming the prize. Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing — in this case, until July 6.

Prizes can be claimed at any of the Missouri Lottery's four offices, in St. Louis, Springfield, Jefferson City or Kansas City.
