State Fair Grand-Prize Lottery Winners Announced
Three Missouri State fairgoers won prizes worth thousands of dollars at this year’s fair by buying Missouri Lottery tickets and entering them into one of three drawings. The winners are: Shirley Brewer of Edwards, who won a travel certificate for a trip for two to her choice of an all-inclusive resort in Cancun, Mexico, or Negril, Jamaica; Dennis Bruns of Foristell, who won his choice an ATV or Waverunner; and Susan Niebur of Gladstone, who won a $3,000 shopping spree at her choice of one of three Missouri malls/plazas.
"We had a lot of interest at this year’s fair," said Christy Niemeier, events manager for the Missouri Lottery. "The Lottery had record ticket sales at our booth, and players seemed to really like the mix of prizes we offered."
During the fair, which ran from Aug. 12 to Aug. 22, players who purchased $5 worth of Missouri Lottery tickets received a free Numbers Game ticket. On Saturdays and Sundays, players who bought $10 worth of tickets got a free Lottery T-shirt.
Players used the tickets purchased at the Lottery’s fair booth to enter daily second-chance drawings, depending on which prize package they were interested in winning. From Aug. 12 through Aug. 22, daily drawings were held and 10 entries from three drums (30 total) were drawn to win $100 worth of Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets. Those entrants were also entered into the grand-prize drawing for that prize. During the grand-prize drawings, which were held Aug. 22, one ticket was drawn from each of the three drums to determine a grand-prize winner.
