State offices, including the Missouri Lottery, will be closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The Lottery is proud to contribute to the dream that all children will have access to quality education.
Here's to you realizing your dream - whatever that may be.
State offices, including the Missouri Lottery, will be closed Wednesday in observance of Christmas. We hope you get time to enjoy your family. The Lottery will reopen Thursday so that you can claim those winning tickets.
With the new year just around the corner, you need a new calendar. We have a supply of Missouri Lottery calendars featuring adorable pets, and we want our My Lottery members to have one. Sign up for a chance to have one delivered to your home. Starting Dec. 23, we'll draw five names a day for 12 days to receive one of these priceless calendars. My Lottery members, just fill out the first part of the form, and we'll check your account for the rest. Non-members, fill out the entire form, or better yet, sign up for a My Lotteryaccount - they're free.
The calendar is comprised of photos submitted by our players - maybe even someone you know. Visit our Facebook page and sign up to win one today. You only need to enter once.
It sure is fun to think about winning $648 million. That's the kind of money that would make anything possible. If you dream of a private island, or owning a professional sports team, a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot could make that happen.
If you just desire a little financial security, all of our games could make that happen. Friday's Mega Millions jackpot resets to $15 million. The starting jackpot annuity would pay about a half-million dollars a year for the next 30 years. The starting jackpot for Powerball is $40 million.
Our state games offer better odds and still have substantial prizes. Lotto starts at $1 million, and is currently worth $2.8 million. The average Show Me Cash jackpot is $165,000. That could really change your year.
The point its, your chances of winning are the same at every draw. A record jackpot would be nice, but tonight's $50 million Powerball jackpot would be better than fine.
We've noticed that certain email addresses are more tolerant of the Lottery than others. We occasionally send emails to winners of promotions on our Facebook page, and it's interesting to note which ones go through and which ones don't. For instance, we've noticed that @charter.net doesn't like the word, lottery. If you have an @charter.net email address, more than likely our messages are going straight to your spam folder.
We're not sure how many others act the same way. Generally, Gmail and Yahoo are OK. If you would like to know if we're trying to contact you, be sure to add @molottery.com to your "safe senders list." We would hate for you to be waiting on that message that never came.
A Missouri Lottery retail location near the Truman Sports Complex in Independence is going to be featured on a episode of "Bar Rescue" on Spike TV today. Tune in for a look at the local renovation, or better yet, swing on down to BarCode, 9100 E. 35th St. in Independence, and join the watch party Sunday night. Play a little Club Keno while you're there.
To help promote our pet adoption program with the St. Louis Humane Society, the Lottery will be making a few stops at local area Petco stores in the coming week. Join us this Sunday, Dec. 15, at the Petco in St. Charles from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and next Saturday at the Petco in Chesterfield at the same times. At each stop, the Lottery will be on hand with our mobile selling unit, the Humane Society's mobile adoption unit and Y98 to bring attention to the pet adoption program. Adopt a pet in need from participating St. Louis shelters, and you could get $20 worth of Missouri Lottery "Santa Paws" Scratchers tickets while supplies last this holiday season. See you there!
Need a quick idea for the office gift exchange? Scratchers make great gifts for lots of reasons. Every ticket is a win for public education, and those who receive Scratchers have a chance to win big. Scratchers are available in all sizes at a store near you, and even non-winning Scratchers are valuable. Earn Points For Prizes®, and each holiday-themed ticket is eligible for entry in the "Dashing Through The Snow" second-chance promotion.
On a serious note, the Missouri Lottery would like to remind you that Scratchers are not for kids. You must be 18 or older to play the Lottery, and we hope everyone will "give responsibly."
State offices, including the Missouri Lottery, will be closed Thursday and Friday in observance of Thanksgiving. The games will continue, and thousands of retail locations will be open for your business.
Thank you, for Playing It Forward with the Missouri Lottery.
