O'FALLON LOTTERY PLAYER SELECTED FOR WHEEL SPIN

Story Photo An O’Fallon resident’s Missouri Lottery ticket was drawn to make her the 45th contestant in the "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" for a chance to win up to $250,000.  On May 2, 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 – Patty Edmiston of O’Fallon - was drawn to be a contestant in the wheel spin on May 30.

The nine other finalists selected in the first preliminary drawing to win $500 are:  Wanda Stoecker of Springfield, Steve Brady of St. Charles, P.C. Johnson of Kirksville, Eddie McGhee of Overland, Cynthia Sim of St. Louis (63114)*, Saundra Buerck of Perryville, Kimberly Moffet of N. Kansas City, Beth Rattles of Monett and Steve Fonod of  St. Louis (63116)*.

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