St. Louis Bartender Wins Vehicle In Promotion
A St. Louis bartender is all shook up after she collected the third of three game pieces needed to win a 2004 Chevrolet® Avalanche or Tahoe in the Missouri Lottery’s "Lost Treasure Adventure" summer promotion. Rashida Stinson, 25, said she didn’t really believe it until she received the call from the dealership.
Stinson, who is a bartender for The Spot on Broadway in St. Louis, said she had just bought a ’91 Crown Victoria when she won the vehicle prize during the first week in September. She said she is happy to sell that vehicle and keep the brand new one.
"I told everyone that I am going to Luckytown," she said.
In addition to a new vehicle, Stinson will also receive a check for $500 cash and the Lottery will pay standard federal and state withholding taxes based on the value of the prize package.
One of the three grand-prize vehicles has not been claimed, and many other prizes, ranging from T-shirts to trips, are still unclaimed.
The promotion, which started June 12, includes the following prizes:
- Three prizes of the winner’s choice between a 2004 Chevrolet® Avalanche or a 2004 Chevrolet® Tahoe;
- 20 prizes of the winner’s choice of trip for four to Cancun, Mexico, Negril, Jamaica or WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort® in Orlando, Fla.;
- 30 prizes of a $3,000 Missouri mall shopping spree at the winner’s choice of the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, the Galleria in St. Louis or the Factory Outlet Village in Osage Beach;
- 40 prizes of the winner’s choice between a Gateway® laptop computer or desktop computer system;
- 50 prizes of the winner’s choice between a $2,000 Bass Pro Shops® shopping adventure or $2,000 worth of spa treatments for one year;
- 200 prizes of $500 cash;
- 657 prizes of $50 worth of Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets;
- 30,000 "Lost Treasure Adventure" T-shirts.
Players can collect game pieces to win or win any of the prizes instantly with three new Scratchers games. The three games - "$100,000 Riches," "Silver & Gold" and "Lost Treasure Adventure" - each have perforated game pieces that can be matched to the spaces on the "Lost Treasure Adventure" game board to win the prize shown. The prizes can also be won instantly with instant-win game pieces.
