STEELVILLE LOTTERY PLAYER SELECTED FOR WHEEL SPIN

Story Photo A Steelville resident’s Missouri Lottery ticket was drawn to make her the 39th contestant in the "Fun & Fortune Wheel Spin" for a chance to win up to $250,000.  On Mar. 21, 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 – Christine McGuire of Steelville - was drawn to be a contestant in the wheel spin on April 4.

The nine other finalists selected in the first preliminary drawing to win $500 are:  Gary Reeks of Paragould, Ark., Jasper Cello of St. Louis (63128)*, Richard Randolph of St. Louis (63116)*, Diane Crider of Belle, Walter Petty of St. Louis (63137)*, Larry Smith and Jeffrey Smith both of Novinger, Brock York of Salem Ark., and Howard Luh of Arnold

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 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.
