BELTON LOTTERY PLAYER SELECTED FOR WHEEL SPIN

Story Photo            A Belton resident’s Missouri Lottery ticket was drawn to make him the 46th contestant in the "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" for a chance to win up to $250,000.  On May 9, 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 – Richard Kiefer Jr. of Belton - 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:  Kenneth Graham of St. Ann, Phyllis Roberts of Fenton, Helen Henderson of Cameron, Rosalie Duvall of Madison, Gajendra Patel of St. Louis (63146)*, Paul Whitaker Sr. of Springfield, Dennis Swartz of Bowling Green, Mark Tinoco of Kansas City and Erin Berga of Neosho.

             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.
