Lottery Offers Hummer H2 in New Pick 3 Raffle Promotion
One lucky Pick 3 player will get the chance to cruise around in a 2007 Hummer® H2 this spring with the Missouri Lottery’s new "Pick 3 Bonus Bucks Raffle" promotion, which starts Feb. 1 and ends March 1. In addition to the chance to win the top-prize Hummer® H2, players will also be able to win one of 40 $1,000 cash prizes.
"We think Pick 3 players will be excited to get a chance to win a Hummer®," said Jennifer Kempker, promotions manager for the Missouri Lottery. "The 40 $1,000 cash prizes are also very appealing."
The grand-prize winner will have the option to take the vehicle or the cash value of the Hummer H2, which is $60,000, taxes paid.
Starting Feb. 1, a numbered raffle ticket will follow every $3 or greater Pick 3 single-ticket purchase for that day’s draw. Once a week during the four-week promotion, a drawing will be held with the raffle numbers issued that week. In each drawing, the Lottery will award 10 prizes of $1,000 cash. At the final drawing on March 2, one entry will be drawn from among all the entries received for the promotion.
"Players need to hang on to their raffle tickets since they are good for the weekly drawing and also for the grand-prize drawing," said Kempker. "If they win, they will need to provide the raffle ticket to us to claim their prize."
Raffle winning numbers will be available on the Missouri Lottery’s Web site, posted at retail locations and distributed to the media through news releases.
