Feb. 27, 2014 – The Missouri Lottery’s new $250k Triple Play draw game, which went on sale Sunday, already has its first top-prize winner. Wednesday night, one very lucky player scored the game’s $250,000 top prize on the game’s first ever drawing.
Along with the big $250,000 winner, two other players won the game’s $10,000 second prize and more than 10,500 players won smaller cash prizes in last night’s drawing.
The winning numbers in Wednesday’s first-ever drawing of Triple Play were 23, 33, 47 and 48.
“This is great news for our players. The game is performing just as we planned, making several big winners,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery.
Overall there were more than 11,000 winners who won just less than $300,000 in total prize money Wednesday. But, for players who didn’t score one of Triple Play’s five prizes last night, the Missouri Lottery is offering a second chance.
Through the “Triple Play at the Raceway” second chance promotion, players can enter non-winning Triple Play tickets for a chance to win one of 40 cash prizes worth $500 or one of eight race weekend grand prize packages.
Each week in March the Missouri Lottery will hold a drawing to decide two grand prize winners and 10 winners for the $500 first prize. Players can enter non-winning tickets starting today, and the first entry period closes Sunday, March 9.
The grand prize race weekend up for grabs gives players tickets to a suite at Sonoma Raceway for the Toyota/Save Mart 350. The ticket package also includes a vineyard tour of three of the top vineyards in Sonoma Valley and $1,000 spending cash.
To enter, players must be registered for the Missouri Lottery’s My Lottery Player’s Club. It’s free to register, and registration gives players access to all of the Lottery’s promotions.
