ST. CHARLES LOTTERY PLAYER SELECTED FOR WHEEL SPIN

Story Photo            A St. Charles resident’s Missouri Lottery ticket was drawn to make her the 55th contestant in the "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" for a chance to win up to $250,000.  On July 11, 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 – Rebecca Walters of St. Charles - was drawn to be a contestant in the wheel spin at the final wheel spin event on Aug. 1.

            The nine other finalists selected in the first preliminary drawing to win $500 are:  Eric Harter of Lake St. Louis, Linda Wilson of Bonne Terre, Patricia Munden of Mansfield, Bryan Polston of De Soto, Kenneth Plummer of Forest City, Karen Schaefer of Independence, Jolene Baker of Joplin, Tami Edington of Poplar Bluff and Annette Byington of Ste. Genevieve.

             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 Lottery’s last “Fun & Fortune” Wheel Spin event is scheduled for Aug. 1 at Lottery headquarters in Jefferson City.  The game’s $2 Scratchers ticket will end June 30, and the deadline for entry in the final “Fun & Fortune” Wheel Spin event is July 24 at 3 p.m.  Beginning July 24, winning ENTRY tickets can be redeemed for a $2 free-ticket.

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.
