Players Track Jackpots With New Email Alert

The Powerball jackpot is on the rise again--topping $137 million this week--and Missouri Lottery players are now able to track its progress with a new email service that alerts them when the jackpot reaches unthinkable amounts.   

"Even though the minimum Powerball jackpot amount--$10 million--is no drop in the bucket, we know that a portion of our players tend to play Powerball when the jackpot reaches certain levels," said Julie Beck managing Web editor for the Missouri Lottery.   "Whether they’re an occasional Lottery player or play everyday, this service allows us to alert our players at the amount of their choosing."

Once players create or log in to their existing My Lottery account, a free new on-line service that offers players a variety of benefits and more opportunities to win at molottery.com, they have the option to choose the jackpot amount at which point they wish to be notified by email.   Players can choose from a list of the following amounts:  $50 million, $75 million, $100 million or $150 million.  They may also choose "Always" from this list to receive an email notification after every Powerball drawing, regardless of the amount. 

Lotto players also have the same advantage to be alerted of increasing jackpots.   Players can choose to be alerted once the Lotto jackpot reaches any of the following amounts:  $3 million, $5 million, $7 million, $10 million or "Always."
