Lottery Promotion Offers Chance to Compete on "Deal of No Deal" Game Show
Now players can choose their own briefcase and win a chance to go to Hollywood as a contestant on the Deal of No Deal television game show. The Missouri Lottery’s new "Deal or No Deal" Scratchers game, which officially begins on Sept. 1, is based on the television game show by the same name. It offers an elimination-style play action and a chance to win up to $100,000 instantly.
"This is the second ’Deal or No Deal’ Scratchers game and promotion we’ve offered," said Bill Burton, instant game product manager for the Missouri Lottery. "The difference in this game is a larger top prize and a chance not only to attend a taping of the show but to participate as a contestant on the show."
Players can send in one non-winning "Deal or No Deal" Scratchers ticket as an entry into the promotion. There will be six drawings held in the promotion. One grand-prize trip to Hollywood with a chance to play the real "Deal or No Deal" game will be awarded in each drawing. Five first prizes of $1,000 cash will be awarded in each drawing.
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:
