Three Vehicles Featured in Lottery's Holiday Promotion
Get ready for a holly jolly holiday season with the Missouri Lottery’s new "Yule Tide Thrill Ride" promotion, which starts Oct. 30. In addition to 165 cash prizes, the Lottery will also be awarding three popular grand-prize vehicles and $500 cash or the prize package’s cash value.
"This is the first time we have given players the chance to choose the grand-prize or the cash equivalent," said Jennifer Kempker, promotions manager for the Missouri Lottery. "It will be interesting to see which prize appeals more to our players."
In all three drawings, five cash prizes of $2,500 and 50 cash prizes of $500 will also be awarded. During the first drawing, Dec. 1, players will have a chance to win the grand-prize 2005 Ford Mustang GT® Coupe and $500 or the prize packages’ cash value of $27,000. In the second drawing on Dec. 22, one name will be drawn to win a 2005 Ford F-150® truck and $500 or the cash value of $33,000. The third drawing, Jan. 19, 2005, will feature a grand-prize 2005 Ford Explorer XLT® and $500 or the cash value of $33,000.
Players can enter the drawing on-line, by postal mail or by dropping entries at regional offices. An entry consists of $10 worth of non-winning Scratchers tickets from five current holiday-theme games: "$300,000 Holiday Cash," "Season’s Greetings," "Holiday Bingo," "Ho Ho Holidays" and "Merry Money."
