Three Missouri Lottery players’ names were drawn today to win a weekend getaway to one of five special destinations in Missouri. Robert Evans of Florissant, Karen Thompson of Moberly and Eric Pisane of Union all were selected as trip winners from among 12,994 entries in the 10th and final drawing of the "Explore Missouri" promotion. The promotion, which began April 6, was 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, were awarded. Though the promotion has ended, players can still win cash prizes of up to $20,000 or one of five 2002 Ford Explorers and $500 cash in the $2 "Explore Missouri" Scratchers game. 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.
