Kansas City Woman Wins Trip to Hollywood
Tamara Tanner, Kansas City, is the first winner of the grand prize in the Missouri Lottery’s "Deal or No Deal" promotion. Tanner won the top prize of a trip for four to Hollywood and a chance to play the real Deal or No Deal game.
"What?" Tanner replied when a Lottery official told her she won. "Oh, my God. I’m going to cry. Are you kidding me? I’m going to Hollywood! I don’t know who I’m going to call first."
Tanner was not feeling well, so she was home from work on Oct. 2 when she got the news of her win.
"I feel better already," she said after learning that she won the trip to Hollywood.
Tanner said all of her family members are big fans of the Deal or No Deal television game show, so she’s not yet sure who she’s going to take with her on the trip.
Tanner’s prize includes transportation, hotel accommodations and $500 spending cash. She will attend a Deal or No Deal game where contestants will be randomly selected for a chance to play the game with Howie, the models and the Banker. Contestants who get to play the game can win up to $1 million, and all contestants will be guaranteed to win at least $5,000.
In addition to Tanner’s prize, five other Lottery players won a $1,000 cash prize.
