Third Mega Game Offers 30 Prizes of $250,000
The Missouri Lottery’s newest $10 Scratchers game is a mega game with mega prizes: 30 prizes of $250,000, to be exact. The new game, "$250,000 Mega Cash," officially starts on Jan. 31.
"This is our third ’mega’ Scratchers game," said Bill Burton, instant product manager for the Missouri Lottery. "The first two games, which have $1 million-plus top prizes, have been very popular with our players. In these two games alone, so far we have created 12 millionaires and have paid out more than $123 million in total prizes. We expect this third mega game to be very popular, too."
There are more than $100 million in prizes in the new game, more than 300,000 that range from $50 to $500 and more than 4,000 prizes that range from $1,000 to $20,000. The overall prize payout is 75.17 percent of sales.
