Everyone is dreaming about Mega Millions today. Tonight's jackpot is $640 million. That would buy you several private islands, mansions in every state, the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals™, or just about anything you care to imagine.
But there are lots of ways to win playing the Missouri Lottery. Some players tonight might miss the jackpot by one number, but if you add Megaplier to your ticket, you could turn a $250,000 near miss into $1 million.
Also on tap tonight is a $151,000 Show Me Cash jackpot. The first player to ever win two Show Me Cash jackpots was announced this week. A Moberly man won $335,000 in 2009, and claimed another $174,000 jackpot from the March 23 drawing.
The last two Pick 4 combinations were 9-9-9-3 and 0-4-4-4. If you played either combination straight/box for $1, exact order paid $3,750 and any order paid $750. A $1 straight play won $6,000. Players collected more than $72,000 between the two drawings.
A player in Kirksville won $1 million playing Powerball this week. And don't forget about Scratchers. A couple of friends, also in the Kirksville area, split a $30,000 Scratchers prize. Does it have to be Mega Millions? Or would a $2.4 million Lotto jackpot work for you? How about a chance to win Cardinals® gear?
