HOT LINE PROVIDES NEXT-DAY CONTESTANT INFORMATION
Now it is easier and faster than ever for Missouri Lottery "Fun & Fortune" players to find out if their entry was drawn to be a contestant on an upcoming game show, thanks to a new toll-free hot line: 1-866-LKY-TOWN. Instead of waiting to be notified, players who mail in entries can now find out the morning after the drawing if they will be a contestant.
"We draw every Tuesday night from the entries we receive the previous week," said Amy Berendzen, broadcast manager for the Missouri Lottery. "Instead of wondering, players can find out the next day if their name was drawn."
Berendzen said players have been able to access this information on the Lottery’s Web site - www.molottery.com - for nearly two years. For many players who don’t have Internet access, the hot line, which was implemented April 4, will be a valuable resource.
