Dexter Woman Returns from 'Incredible' Trip to Margaritaville




For Stephanie Young of Dexter, playing Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets is always two-fold:  she could win cash instantly, or she could win once-in-a-lifetime experiences by entering non-winning tickets on her My Lottery account. The later became reality for the elementary school teacher in fall 2015 when her name was drawn as the winner of an all-inclusive paid vacation to the brand new Margaritaville Vacation Club® Resort in St. Thomas.

With her win, Young and her husband of two years, Jeremiah, finally got to embark on the honeymoon of their dreams this summer.

“That resort is incredible. The grounds and beaches were just beautiful,” said Young, recalling their trip after returning home. “Everything was first-class the whole way. It was my husband’s first time flying, and my first time flying first-class. We were even greeted with a margarita the second we got to the hotel.”

Young won her experience by entering non-winning “Escape to Margaritaville®” Scratchers tickets into an accompanying promotion at MOLottery.com. After being drawn as a winner, the couple chose from three Margaritaville Vacation Club Resorts in the Caribbean, and settled on St. Thomas.

While at the resort for their eight day/seven night stay, the Youngs enjoyed touring the island’s Red Hook and Coki beaches and even took a sailboat out snorkeling in the island’s famous coral reef.

“Playing those (Scratchers) tickets gives us an extra incentive. Even if I had won (a top prize) on them, I would have never dreamed of taking a trip like this.”

Missouri Lottery players can get added value out of their non-winning Scratchers and Draw Games tickets through the free My Lottery Players Club at MOLottery.com. By entering their tickets, players earn entries into promotions like the “Second Chance of a Lifetime:  Summer Sportscation,” offering once-in-a-lifetime trips to the world’s top sporting events and destinations. Information about all the Promotions offered by the Missouri Lottery can be found at MOLottery.com.
