THREE MORE SELECTED TO RECEIVE MISSOURI GETAWAYS
Three more Missouri Lottery players can start packing after their names were drawn to win a trip of their choice to one of five special destinations in Missouri. Leonard Boyer of Bonne Terre, Judee Cole of St. Louis and Kevin Johnson of Maplewood all were selected as trip winners from among 14,824 entries -- 7,921 entered through the Lottery’s Web site and 6,903 entered through the mail -- in the seventh of 10 drawings. The seventh drawing was held today.
The promotion, which began April 6, is a joint effort between the Missouri Lottery and the Missouri Division of Tourism. A total of 30 Missouri weekend getaway trip prize packages, provided by the Division of Tourism, will be awarded in the Lottery’s second-chance promotion.
To participate, players can purchase a $2 "Explore Missouri" Scratchers ticket. Players can win cash prizes of up to $20,000 or one of five 2002 Ford Explorers and $500 cash in the instant-win game.
If the ticket is a non-winner, the player can enter on-line by logging on to www.molottery.com and entering the 14-digit serial number from the back of the non-winning "Explore Missouri" ticket. Players also can enter by mailing their tickets to: Explore Missouri, Missouri Lottery, P.O. Box 104711, Jefferson City, Mo., 65110-4711.
The Lottery will conduct three more drawings to award nine more trips, three per drawing. The remaining deadlines and drawing dates are as follows:

In addition to a chance to win a new Ford Explorer or a Missouri trip package, the Missouri Lottery also will pay withholding taxes on both prizes.
