Bring It Home With the Missouri Lottery Summer Promotion

How would you celebrate winning your dream house?  The Missouri Lottery is going to help someone celebrate by giving away a new home with the "Take It Home II" promotion.

The "Take It Home II" promotion, beginning July 26, offers one grand prize of $300,000* taxes paid to build or buy a home.  The total prize value is $422,000.  Also during the promotion, five players will win $10,000* cash and 30 players will win $1,000* cash.

"This is the second year in a row we’re giving away $300,000 for a new home," said Nicole Baldwin, promotions manager.  "Players really enjoyed last year’s summer promotion with the new home prize, and we’re offering that dream again this year."

To enter the promotion, players need to submit $40 worth of any combination of the four eligible Scratchers tickets for this promotion.  The eligible games are:  "Lifetime Riches," a $10 game; "$250,000 Mega Cash," a $10 game; "100 Million Dollar Blockbuster," a $10 game; and "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza," a $20 game.  Each entry is eligible for one weekly drawing and the grand-prize drawing.

Five weekly drawings and one grand-prize drawing will be held during the promotion.  One prize of $10,000 cash and six prizes of $1,000 cash will be awarded in each weekly drawing.  One grand prize of $300,000 to build or buy a home will be awarded in a grand-prize drawing on Sept. 12.  The Missouri Lottery will pay standard federal and state taxes for the each prize awarded in the promotion.

Players may enter the "Take It Home II" promotion by submitting their eligible non-winning tickets on the Lottery’s Web site at Molottery.com.  Entries may also be dropped off at a Missouri Lottery office in St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield or Jefferson City, or they can be mailed to:
