IGT, a Missouri Lottery vendor and partner, announced it’s 10th After School Advantage Program in Missouri on Feb. 3. This program provides at-risk students with state-of-the-art technology for their education. A $16,000 computer and robotics lab was donated and installed at Central Middle School in the Riverview Gardens School District. The lab includes a 3-D printer, an interactive Promethean touch “whiteboard” and stand, four LEGO Mindstorms and ROBOTIC for vex software.
We thank IGT for helping the Missouri Lottery Play It Forward for public education.

Lottery players can enter Powerball® tickets from now through March 28 for a shot at winning 45 Caribbean cruise vacation packages to experience the first-ever Power Cruise sailing to Key West, Florida, and Cozumel, Mexico. Departing from Tampa, Florida, the five-night cruise onboard Royal Caribbean International’s adventure-packed ship, Brilliance of the Seas, will set sail on Jan. 15, 2018, giving trip winners plenty of time to plan for their vacations.
The Missouri Lottery is one of 25 U.S. lotteries that will be part of the Power Cruise campaign, which has chartered the entire Royal Caribbean ship exclusively for lottery trip winners from across the country.
Powerball players can enter the Power Cruise™ promotion by entering their tickets into their free My Lottery® Players Club. The Missouri Lottery will hold five prize drawings for the cruise packages, with 45 trips awarded.
