Story Photo            A Lebanon resident’s Missouri Lottery ticket was drawn to make her the 43rd contestant in the "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" for a chance to win up to $250,000.  On April 18, the Lottery drew 10 finalists from "Fun & Fortune" wheel spin entries submitted the previous week.  Each finalist will receive $500, and one of those 10 finalists – Melissa Etzel of Lebanon - was drawn to be a contestant in the wheel spin on May 2.

            The nine other finalists selected in the first preliminary drawing to win $500 are:  Dwight Harrington of Farmington, Eve Kleeschulte of Florissant, Neal Bigelow of Chillicothe, Julie Flippin of Clarksburg, Shirley Mize of Fenton, Robert Vinzant of Kansas City, Richard Lowry of Bolivar, Erin Goertz of Gladstone and Michael Quinn of St. Louis (63129)*.

            For a chance to win $500 and to spin the wheel, players need to buy a new $2 "Fun & Fortune" Scratchers ticket.  If the ticket is a winner and the prize won is ENTRY, the ticket should be mailed to the Lottery’s headquarters to be placed in a weekly drawing.  Each week, 10 of these ENTRY tickets will be drawn, and those winners will receive $500 each.   In addition, one of the 10 preliminary winners will be drawn for a chance to spin the wheel and win from $2,500 to $250,000. 

            The "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" will be held at the Lottery’s Jefferson City office at 1823 Southridge Drive and is open to the public.  Each monthly "Wheel Spin" event will also be streamed on the Lottery’s Web site.
