Or the money goes back to Missouri Education.

She goes on to say specifically, “If you have this winning ticket, you should sign the back of it and keep it in a safe place until you’re ready to claim your prize. You can do that any of our four Lottery offices – Springfield is the closest to Joplin – or you can mail in your claim.
