Three Missouri Lottery players might want to start practicing their sprinting and shopping skills after their names were drawn Nov. 27 to win a grand prize in the Lottery’s “Dashing Through the Snow” holiday promotion. The winners – Donna Carouthers of Kansas City, Hugh Key of Gladstone and Deana Lee of Advance – have won the ultimate shopping spree: a trip for two to a 90-second “warehouse dash” for merchandise in Chicago.
In addition to the three grand-prize winners, 25 first-prize winners were drawn to win $1,000 shopping sprees, and 100 second-prize winners were drawn to win $500 cash. Two more drawings remain in the promotion.
The “Dashing Through the Snow” holiday promotion, which runs through Jan. 7, is the first time both non-winning Scratchers and Draw Game tickets are eligible as entries. Players get one entry for each $1 worth of holiday Scratchers or Draw Games tickets submitted. Draw Games tickets – which include Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto, Show Me Cash, Pick 3, Pick 4 and Club Keno – must be purchased, with all drawings held, between the promotion dates Oct. 19 and Jan. 7, 2014.
The five eligible holiday-themed Scratchers are:
• $10 – “Seasons Greetings” (game 945)
• $5 – “Happy Holidays” (game 946)
• $3 – “Bearing Gifts” (game 948)
• $2 – “Santa Paws” (game 949)
• $1 – “Secret Santa” (game 950)
Players may enter tickets at MOLottery.com through their My Lottery Players Club account. Scratchers tickets submitted online will gain entry into the promotion while simultaneously earning points for the Points For Prizes™ program.
