You've probably heard that Missouri Lottery proceeds benefit public education, but you've probably not dug into the information available on MOLottery.com about where specifically that money travels. Some of it has been used to fund building construction at state colleges and universities. The following video shows some of the awesome works created by your Lottery dollars.
There was a press conference last week to introduce the latest Missouri Lottery Lotto winners. Jim and Patty Grafrath claimed the winning ticket from the $2.3 million Lotto drawing on Jan. 2. Producer Frank Finley caught up with them at the Infield Sports Bar & Grill in Marthasville where Jim bought the winning ticket and filed this report.
Just a little more than two weeks ago, there was a Missouri winner following a record Powerball jackpot run. The Hill family of Dearborn was one of two lucky winners of the record Powerball jackpot on Nov. 28. The other winner was from Arizona.
The Hills found out right away, and a press conference was held the following day. Producer Frank Finley walks us through the press conference where the Hills were announced as the largest Powerball jackpot winner in Missouri Lottery history.
The Lotto Bonus Cash promotion is now over, but Lotto Doubler continues. Lotto Doubler tickets are issued randomly - when you buy a Lotto ticket, it will indicate whether or not it's a Doubler. If so, all non-jackpot prizes will double! Here's a video about the Lotto Doubler feature.
The Missouri Lottery is adding a new feature to Lotto on Nov. 4. It doesn't cost you anything, and it could mean bigger non-jackpot prizes. Introducing Lotto Doubler. When you buy a Lotto ticket after Nov. 4, certain tickets will be selected at random to be Lotto Doubler tickets. If you get a Lotto Doubler ticket and win any non-jackpot prize, that prize will double. For instance, say you get a Lotto Doubler ticket and win a free play. Make that two free plays with Lotto Doubler! And it didn't cost you anything!
To kick off the new feature, we're offering a Lotto Doubler promotion between Nov. 4 and Dec. 1. Buy a Lotto ticket during that time frame and you could win bonus cash! At random intervals, a Bonus Cash voucher may follow a $1 single-ticket Lotto purchase. You could win $5, $10, $25 or $50 just for playing the game.
The following video explains Lotto Doubler and the Lotto Bonus Cash promotion. One of our oldest games is now even better. Play It Forward.
