300th millionaire winner for the Missouri LotteryWednesday June 16th 2010
Earnest Pullen, a 56 year old man from Pevely, became the 300th millionaire winner for the Missouri Lottery after winning one of one million top prizes on a scratch card that he bought in St Louis. The scratch off ticket was the 100 Million Dollar Blockbuster game and was purchased from The Stand, 800 Block Chestnut Street. This win not only makes Earnest the 300th millionaire lottery winner for the state, but also the 47th person to win a million or more on a scratch card from the Missouri Lottery.
The 100 Million Dollar Blockbuster scratch off game from the Missouri Lottery began in September 2007 and has four top prizes on $1 million still left to play for. Buying a lotto ticket for this game will cost you $10 and lottery winners of the top prize have the option to receive $50,000 over 20 years for a lump sum.
We also have news of another scratch off top prize win from the Missouri Lottery, this time it was on the 10 X game which costs $10 and the lucky Hannibal woman won the $100,000 top prize. This lottery ticket was purchased from Pick-a-Dilly 1329 Mark Twain Avenue and the prize was claimed on June 8th. According the Missouri Lottery officials, there are still seven top prizes unclaimed on this 10 X scratch off lottery game.
For those who play the Missouri Lottery regularly, the main lotto game currently has an estimated jackpot of $1.3 for the next draw which is due to take place this evening.
