Lottery Holiday Promotion Will Award Three New Vehicles
Missouri Lottery players will be able to haul in some holiday cargo with the Lottery’s "Holiday in the Driveway" promotion beginning Oct. 27. Through the promotion, Lottery players will have chances to win vehicles, gasoline and cash prizes.
A Pontiac® Solstice convertible, a Jeep® Wrangler and a Chevrolet® Avalanche truck plus $500 are the three grand prizes that will be awarded during the promotion. Also during the promotion, 60 players will each win $1,000 for gas and 150 players will each win $500 cash.
"The holiday promotion is always a favorite of our players," said Nancy Rollins, marketing manager for the Missouri Lottery. "In addition to the promotion, the new holiday Scratchers tickets make great gifts."
Four new holiday Scratchers games will officially begin on Oct. 27 to kick off the holiday promotion. The new holiday games are "Season’s Greetings," a $5 game; "Frosty Bingo," a $2 game; "Happy Holidays," a $2 game; and "Merry Money," a $1 game. These four games plus three $10 Scratchers games - "Lifetime Riches," "$250,000 Mega Cash," and "100 Million Dollar Blockbuster" - are the Scratchers tickets eligible for entry into the promotion. Players need to submit $10 worth of any combination of the three $10 games and the four holiday games to enter the promotion for a chance win.
Three drawings will be held during the promotion to award the prizes. The new Pontiac® Solstice plus $500 will be awarded through the first drawing. The winner will have the option to choose the vehicle or the cash value of the prize of $30,000. The new Jeep® Wrangler plus $500 will be awarded through the second drawing. The winner of the vehicle will again have the option to take the vehicle or the cash value of the prize of $33,000. The new Chevrolet® Avalanche truck plus $500 cash or its cash value of $41,000 will be awarded in the third drawing. The Lottery will pay the standard withholding taxes for the three grand prizes.
In addition to the grand prize, there will be 20 winners selected for the $1,000 for gas prizes and 50 winners drawn for the $500 cash prizes during each of the three drawings.
