Eight lucky Iowa Lottery players have won trips to Las Vegas next month for the chance to appear on the MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB lottery television game show!
We held the drawing today to determine the trip winners, and they are (drum roll, please):
• Sam Achilli of Urbandale
• Jaime Allspach of Newton
• Travis Butler of Marion
• Lisa Hill of Marion
• Carrie Jaster of Ely
• Tina Kerslake of Central City
• Randy Schott of Sibley
• Bernie Wysong of Des Moines
They each became eligible for the drawing by submitting their MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB lottery game tickets at www.playmmc.com.
Each trip winner will receive a five-day, four-night trip for two plus spending money to Las Vegas, where the MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB national lottery game TV show will be taped. Each of the eight Iowa Lottery players will be in the audience for three episode tapings and they’ll have a chance to be randomly selected as a contestant on the show.
The TV game show will feature Billy Gardell, star of “Mike and Molly,” as host and will be taped at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino while trip winners and their guests will stay at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The show will begin airing locally in early February in Iowa markets on the following TV stations:
- WQAD-TV in Moline, Ill., Channel 8
- KHQA-TV in Quincy, Ill., Channel 7
- KGAN-TV in Cedar Rapids, Channel 2

- KCCI-TV in Des Moines, Channel 8
- KIMT-TV in Mason City, Channel 3
- KMEG-TV in Dakota Dunes, S.D., Channel 14
- KETV-TV in Omaha, Neb., Channel 7
The TV game show will be taped in Las Vegas a handful of times throughout the year. The next deadline for entries into the drawing for a shot at being a contestant is Jan. 6, and the drawing itself will be conducted on Jan. 13. The winners in that drawing will travel to Las Vegas Feb. 19-23.
