« We Really Mean It: If Playing The Lottery Makes You Unhappy, Take A Break Or Stop | Main | Ticket Purchased In Mount Pleasant Wins Prize Of $25,000 A Year For Life »

Hi, Kathy. That's a really good idea! I don't know that we have considered offering a trip like that as a prize, but I know that more cruises on the Mississippi are being offered, and folks are looking for exclusive travel opportunities. I will share your idea with our promotions team. Thank you for reaching out!

I'm sorry you're not happy with your ticket purchases, Roger. As I blogged about last week, please remember that if playing the lottery is making you unhappy or causing you stress, please don't do it. Take a break or maybe quit altogether. What I can also share is that the winners list in our scratch games shows recent big winners from all over the state -- a $100,000 win by a Cedar Rapids man, a $50,000 win by a Moscow man, a $10,000 win by an Atlantic man, a $50,000 win by a Storm Lake man, a $20,000 win by a Jefferson woman. Tickets in our games are randomly distributed and not even those of us who work at the lottery know where the next big winner will hit.

I have taken many cruises but not one has been on the mighty Mississippi

Have you ever thought of giving away a week cruise on the Mississippi river? Thank you

So that means only buy a ticket in the Des Des Moines area or you won't win the big prize just 2 to 10 dollar prizes every where. else that's a RIP off need to find a better way of disbursement of tickets
