Win up to $25,000 in "Holiday Cash." Our new $2 holiday-themed game, "Holiday Cash," offers players a chance to win up to 10 times on a single ticket. The game features the To/From line at the top, making the ticket a perfect gift tag or the gift itself. The game keeps giving, as non-winning tickets are eligible for entry in the "Holiday Magic" second-chance promotion. Look for "Holiday Cash" at your favorite Missouri Lottery retail location.
There were a few Missouri Lottery players giving thanks this weekend. Two players matched four white-ball numbers and the Powerball Saturday night to win $10,000. The winning tickets were sold at the following locations:
G2M Supermart in Laurie
Country Mart in Ste. Genevieve
There was also a big Club Keno winner last week. A player won more than $5,700 at Hot Shots in Fenton.
Jackpots to watch this week: Powerball is an estimated $30 million, Lotto features an estimated $2.3 million jackpot and Show Me Cash is an estimated $192,000 tonight.
Now that the weather is turning cold, it's a perfect time to look back at one of our biggest events of the year - the Missouri State Fair. Producer Frank Finley visited the fair in August and filed this report. Oh, sunny days...
Today begins the holiday shopping season. As shoppers hit the stores in search of good deals, it's the perfect time to remind you that Scratchers make great gifts. We have a variety of holiday-themed Scratchers tickets at different price points that make your holiday shopping easy. And each of the holiday-themed Scratchers is eligible for the "Holiday Magic" second-chance promotion. During the next week, we'll showcase the different games available this holiday season.
First up is our new $1 game, "Happy Holidays." Players could win up to $500 instantly. Enter non-winning "Happy Holidays" Scratchers tickets for a chance to win a trip to WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort® or other prizes in the "Holiday Magic" promotion. Best of all, Scratchers are available almost any time at thousands of retail locations across the state.
State offices, including the Missouri Lottery, will be closed Thursday and Friday in observance of the holiday. We will resume regular business hours on Monday. In the meantime, you can find tickets at one of several thousand Missouri Lottery retail locations across the state.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you - our retail partners who help us sell lottery products, and the players who buy the tickets - for helping us achieve our mission of providing funding for public education in Missouri.
Thanks for reading, and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend.
