MISSOURIANS GET THE POWER
Powerball players in Missouri will get a free chance to win an extra $40 or $80 in the Missouri Lottery’s new Power Play promotion. Starting April 26, players who purchase $3 worth in Powerball plays on a single ticket for the current drawing will receive a 50-cent Pick 3 ticket. The promotion will award free Quick Pick "box" tickets to the first 1 million players or last until May 22, whichever comes first.
"Powerball is a good partner for promotions because of its large player base," said Scott White, on-line product manager for the lottery. "Cross-promotion of our games is a great way to introduce current players to our other products. It is also a way to give loyal Powerball players added value for their purchase."
Pick 3 offers a variety of ways to play the daily game with prizes ranging from $40 to $500. Pick 3 returns an average of more than $436,000 to players as prizes each week.
Powerball offers players nine ways to win between $3 and jackpots worth several million dollars each Wednesday and Saturday. Powerball returns approximately $1.2 million to players as prizes each week.
