The High-Stakes Game That Brings Players to the Table

Introducing "Texas Hold 'Em™ Poker," (Game 626) the latest Missouri Lottery Scratchers game. There's a $5 "buy-in," a pot of up to $100,000 and a chance to win a seat at a World Poker Tour� tournament of your choice in the United States!

Enjoy real World Poker Tour action, since this game plays like the real deal. Each "Texas Hold 'Em™ Poker" ticket pits you against one opponent. Both of you receive two cards. Each "deal" contains five community cards that are shared by both you and your opponent.

The object of the game is for you to combine your two original cards with the five community cards to make the best five-card poker hand. Then combine your opponent's two cards with the five community cards to make his best five-card poker hand. If you have the better hand, you win the prize for that "deal."
