Lottery Prize Provides Funds for Home Makeover

Home renovations are on the horizon for a Eureka woman who won $20,000 taxes paid through the Lottery’s “Dream Home Makeover” second-chance promotion. For Amanda Lanning, the opportunity to fix recent flood damage to her home is “absolutely amazing.”

“The timing just lined up and this came at the perfect time,” according to her boyfriend, Jerry.

“Mind blown,” she added.

Lanning, who regularly enters non-winning Missouri Lottery tickets into her My Lottery® Players Club account, said she was looking forward to receiving merchandise she had ordered from the Points for Prizes® store, but as luck would have it, she received something else from the Lottery that day.

“I opened up my mailbox expecting a bracelet, but I got a lot more than that!” she said, referring to the official notification letter about her first-prize win. As a result, she received $5,000 worth of gift cards to The Home Depot® and $15,000 in cash.

The couple plans to start repairs with the installation of new flooring and then new windows.

“Never in a million years did I think I’d win,” Lanning concluded. “I’ve never won anything, and this is really, really cool.”

Tickets can still be entered at MOLottery.com for a chance to win in the final grand-prize drawing for a $50,000 Dream Home Makeover on July 14. Players will earn one entry into the grand-prize drawing for every $10 worth of non-winning “$100,000 Dream Makeover” Scratchers tickets entered.

The $5 ticket also offers instant-win prizes of $100,000 cash, as well as the chance to uncover one of more than 1,000 The Home Depot Gift Card prizes worth $500.
