During this year’s fair, which runs from Aug. 12 to Aug. 22, fairgoers can purchase Missouri Lottery tickets at the Lottery booth. From Monday through Friday, players who purchase $5 worth of tickets will receive a free Numbers Game ticket. On Saturdays and Sundays, players who buy $10 worth of tickets will receive a free Lottery T-shirt, while supplies last.
Players can use the tickets purchased at the Lottery’s fair booth to enter daily second-chance drawings. Each day, players can deposit their non-winning ticket entries into one of three drawing drums, depending on which prize package they would like to try to win. The prizes for the three drums are:
• A $3,000 shopping spree at a Missouri mall;
• The winners choice of an ATV or Waverunner;
• The winners choice of a $3,000 travel certificate for a trip for two to an all-inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico, or Negril, Jamaica.
From Aug. 12 through Aug. 21, daily drawings will be held at 7 p.m. Each day, the Lottery will draw 10 entries from each of the three drums, and those winners will receive $100 worth of Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets, along with being automatically entered into the grand-prize drawing. In the grand-prize drawing, which will be held at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 22, immediately after the daily drawing, one ticket will be drawn from each of the three drums to determine that prize’s winner.
Winners do not need to be present to win.
