More and More Millionaires To Be Made in Missouri

When you hear about gigantic lottery prizes, do you wish they could be split into smaller prizes and won by more people?  Now there is a game that will do that – the new MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB™ lottery game! The new multi-state lottery game, which starts October 19, will offer three ways to win, including a Top Prize of up to $25 million, a minimum of 10 Club Prizes of $1 million awarded when the Top Prize is won, and the potential to win up to $1 million by participating in a nationally televised game show.

“Many of our players are going to love this game, since they have told us for years that they would like to see more players win smaller prizes, rather than one huge prize won by one or two players,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “This game will do that. It will create more and more millionaires, many hopefully right here in Missouri!”

The new $5 multi-state game officially goes on sale in Missouri on Oct. 19, and the first drawing will be Oct. 24.

Players will pick five numbers from 1 to 52 and will be randomly assigned one of 28 Properties. Players can win one of 10 prizes ranging from $5 to a starting Top Prize of $15 million. If the Top Prize is not won, it will continue to increase up to $25 million. At that point, if the Top Prize isn’t won, it will remain at $25 million and the additional prize money will be used to create more $1 million Club Prizes that will be awarded when someone wins the Top Prize. At least 10 $1 million Club Prizes will be won if the Top Prize is won at the $15 million minimum level.

“We expect that several Missourians are going to become millionaires through this new game in the first year alone,” said Reardon. “The game was developed by Scientific Games, and they spent years developing and researching it.
“The $5 price will help differentiate it from other multi-state games, like Powerball and Mega Millions, and the game will offer many more features. The $5 price point is currently the most popular with our Scratchers players, so we think Draw Games players will readily play. Not to mention, it is bound to be a success with the MONOPOLY® name, which is one of the best-known brands in the world.”

The drawings will be held at 10:15 p.m. Central Time each Friday.  The overall chances of winning a prize are 1 in 10, and the chances of winning a Top Prize are 1 in 73 million.

Winning Club Prizes will be drawn immediately after determining the Top Prize was won. Players will win a Club Prize by matching the “Club Number” printed on their ticket with one of those drawn.

Players can also enter their ticket’s web code online for a chance to collect Properties and become a contestant on the weekly “MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB” TV game show, which will be filmed in Las Vegas and will start airing in February 2015. The one-hour prime time game show will feature Billy Gardell, star of the hit show “Mike and Molly,” as host. Audience members and at-home viewers will also be able to win prizes.

“This game offers so many unique elements and so many ways to win,” Reardon said. “It fulfills a desire our players have expressed, and we are excited to now offer it.”
