Time is running out to enter the Missouri Lottery’s “Golden Ticket” second-chance promotion for a chance to become a millionaire. Entry into the first drawing ends at midnight Sept. 27, and the drawing will be held on Sept. 29.

“All you have to do is enter non-winning tickets from the ‘$300,000,000 Golden Ticket’ Scratchers game,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “One ticket is one entry. But be sure to enter before the end of the day on Tuesday.”

On Sept. 29, the Lottery will draw eight entrants to win:

• One $1 million prize
• Two $10,000 prizes
• Five $1,000 prizes

The September drawing is the first of three million-dollar drawings. The next drawing will be held on May 25, 2017, and the third drawing date is to be determined.

“This is just one of the ways the Lottery is celebrating its 30th anniversary,” Reardon said. “Not only can you win up to $10 million instantly in the game, but you also have two additional chances to win through these drawings and monthly drawings.”

Throughout 2016, players can enter “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” Scratchers tickets into the promotion through their free My Lottery account. At the beginning of each month, 10 entrants are drawn to win $500 cash. Four more monthly drawings remain on Oct. 4, Nov. 1, Dec. 1 and Jan. 3.

The $30 “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” Scratchers game officially went on sale Jan. 25, five days after the Lottery’s 30th anniversary on Jan. 20. The new game offers players 30 chances to win up to $10 million on each ticket and more than $300 million in cash prizes.
