Entering her non-winning Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets proved to be just the ticket for Valerie Foust of Hannibal to see the world with a cruise for four every year for 10 years, plus $1,000 each year – the third of four grand prizes offered during the Lottery’s “Get Cruisin’” second-chance promotion.  Selected during the June 11 drawing, Foust has the option of selecting “a decade of destinations” or choosing the cash value option of $80,000, taxes paid.

The third “Get Cruisin’” drawing also produced five first-place winners of a 2009 Kawasaki® Jet Ski® Ultra® 260X Personal Watercraft, plus $500, a taxes-paid package valued at $12,499.  Winners are:  Carol Flickinger of Paragould, Ark.; Billy Gordy of Independence; Steve Lovelace of St. Louis; Michael Rapert of Farmington; and Jerome Toeniskoetter of Overland.  An additional 100 second-place winners will each receive $500 cash.  A complete list of official winners can be found at https://www.molottery.com/extras/get_cruisin/winners3.shtm.

There is just one “Get Cruisin’” drawing remaining. The final grand prize to be given away in July is a “Cruising Couples” package – a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado® 2500 HD crew cabin with extended bed AND a 2009 Pontiac Solstice® GXP, plus $1,000.

“Players who submit at least $10 worth of non-winning tickets from any of the six eligible Scratchers games have a chance to win big and cruise in style,” said Nicole Baldwin, promotions manager for the Missouri Lottery.  “The cash value option on our final grand prize is more than $86,000!”

Scratchers tickets eligible for the “Get Cruisin’” promotion are:  $500,000 Cash Spectacular,” a $10 game; $100,000 Payday,” a $5 game; “$25,000 Bankroll,” a $2 game; “Lucky Bucks,” a $1 game; “$200,000 A Year for Life,” a $20 game; and “4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza,” a $20 game. 

Five first-prize winners for the July drawing will also win a 2009 Kawasaki® Jet Ski® Ultra® 260X Personal Watercraft, plus $500.  Additionally, a total of 100 second-prize winners will receive $500 each in cash in the final promotional drawing.
