Saw a nice message on Facebook this week that we thought we’d share. Larry from Columbia wrote: “Way back there was a young girl that found an unscratched lottery ticket in Jefferson City. It was worth so many thousands of dollars, can't recall exactly. So I decided I would begin picking them up as well. So far since then my total findings on the ground totals $263. Of course now they are good for points as well if not a winner. Last find was a show me cash extra match play, good for three dollars, about a week ago.”
The message here is check your tickets. Truly, we appreciate the effort Larry puts in keeping our streets free of trash. You could help us, too, by not throwing your tickets in the street. Enter them for points, and then recycle the paper tickets. Once the ticket has been entered into your account, you no longer need it to claim a second-chance prize.
Keep up the good work, Larry. There is a T-shirt headed your way.
State offices, including the Missouri Lottery, will be closed Monday in observance of Presidents’ Day. If you want to put some Benjamins in your pocket, pick up a Lottery ticket. Thousands of retail locations will remain open through the holiday.
The Lottery will reopen for regular business Tuesday so you can come claim those winning tickets. Thanks for playing!
Need something for the sweetheart in your life? Flowers and candy are nice, but we’ve got something better. Try a “Chocolate Cash” Scratchers ticket. This $5 ticket is scented like chocolate, and it offers a top prize of $100,000. Leave one of these on your lover’s pillow, and you might have a Valentine for life.
If chocolate is not your thing, try the $3 game, “Red Hot Cherries.” This game features a top prize of $50,000.
Both of these games are available now, probably at the C-Store down the street. Happy Valentine's Day!
