SECOND WHEEL SPIN CONTESTANT SELECTED
A Poplar Bluff man’s Missouri Lottery ticket was drawn to make him the second contestant in the "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" for a chance to win up to $250,000. On July 5, the Lottery drew 10 finalists from "Fun & Fortune" wheel spin entries submitted the previous week. Each finalist will receive $500, and one of those 10 finalists - Art Ward of Poplar Bluff - was drawn to be a contestant in the first wheel spin on July 26.
The nine other finalists selected in the first preliminary drawing to win $500 are: Lisa Schumacher of St. Louis (63125)*; Michael Cordell of Kansas City; Irene Bateman of Imperial; Kristine Elliott of Leadwood; Nam Chau of Bridgeton; Everett Harlow of Carrollton; Brian Pendleton of St. Joseph; Ron Clemmons of Jefferson City; and Anita Robertson of Eureka.
The new "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin," which is replacing the televised "Fun & Fortune" game show, offers players more chances to win and bigger prizes.
For a chance to win $500 and to spin the wheel, players need to buy a new $2 "Fun & Fortune" Scratchers ticket. If the ticket is a winner and the prize won is ENTRY, the ticket should be mailed to the Lottery’s headquarters to be placed in a weekly drawing. Each week, 10 of these ENTRY tickets will be drawn, and those winners will receive $500 each. In addition, one of the 10 preliminary winners will be drawn for a chance to spin the wheel and win from $2,500 to $250,000.
The "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" will be held at the Lottery’s Jefferson City office at 1823 Southridge Drive and is open to the public. Each monthly "Wheel Spin" event will also be streamed on the Lottery’s Web site. * winner’s zip code to help the media determine coverage area
