A Crystal City man’s life just turned golden after his name was drawn today to win $1 million in the Missouri Lottery’s first “Golden Ticket” second-chance promotion drawing. Kevin Sargent entered the promotion by submitting a ticket from the Lottery’s “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” Scratchers game into his free My Lottery account.

“This promotion is one way we are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, by giving our players a chance to win some huge cash prizes, including the chance to become a millionaire,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery.

Two other entrants’ names were drawn today to win a $10,000 prize. They are: Ryan Dunn of St. Peters and Mark Johnson of O’Fallon. Five players’ names were drawn to win $1,000. They are: Robert Bird of Hazelwood, Joshua Gore of Kansas City, Patricia Hancock of De Soto, Victoria Krauss of Affton and Amanda Reed of Mineral Point.

Today’s drawing was the first of three drawings in the promotion. The next one will be held on May 25, 2017, and the third drawing date is still to be determined.

Players can enter non-winning tickets from the “$300,000,000 Golden Ticket” game by May 23, 2017, to be entered for the next drawing. One ticket equals one entry into the drawing.

In addition to the three “Golden Ticket” second-chance drawings, players who enter tickets will also be entered into monthly drawings throughout 2016 to win one of 10 cash prizes worth $500. 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.
