'Deal or No Deal' Reveals Prizes, Trip to Taping
Now you can "open" your favorite briefcase and win a chance to go to Hollywood with the Missouri Lottery’s new "Deal or No Deal" Scratchers game, which officially starts Dec. 6. The game, based on the television game show by the same name, offers a new elimination-style play action, a chance to win up to $25,000 cash and a chance to win a trip to see the taping of the show in California.
"This is the second year for the popular game show, which is watched by millions," said Bill Burton, instant game product manager for the Missouri Lottery. "We thought it would be fun for players to play an instant version of the game and get a chance to win a trip to see the show live."
Players can send in one non-winning "Deal or No Deal" Scratchers ticket as an entry into the promotion. One lucky player will be drawn to win a trip for two to see the taping of "Deal or No Deal" or he or she can receive the cash value of the prize, which is $5,000. The trip includes four-day, three-night hotel accommodations in Hollywood, tickets to attend the taping of the show, round-trip airfare, ground transportation and $1,000 cash.
The drawing date will be announced at a later date via news release and at molottery.com. In addition to the grand-prize trip winner, five other players will win $1,000 tax paid.
Players can enter the drawing on-line at molottery.com, hand-deliver entries to any Missouri Lottery office or mail them to the Lottery. Entries should be mailed to this address only:

To play the new "Deal or No Deal" $2 Scratchers game, players will uncover each of the nine briefcases. Then they will go to the prize board and uncover the corresponding symbol. If a prize symbol remains unmatched, then the player wins that prize amount.
"This is the first time we’ve had this play action on a game," Burton said. "We think players will really like it, since it is similar to the way the game show is played."
