A Columbia man can cruise into the holiday season dreaming about a luxury vacation destination after his name was drawn today in the Missouri Lottery’s “Second Chance of a Lifetime: Cruise Into the Holidays” promotion, which started Oct. 16. Randall Williams can choose between an Alaskan cruise, a river cruise in France or a sailing adventure on a private yacht in the Caribbean.

“Each of these cruise vacations offers something unique and special,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “He could cruise the coast of Alaska, take a relaxing river cruise through France or sail the crystal waters of the Caribbean in a private yacht. He may have a tough time deciding.”

Two other entrants’ names were drawn to win Missouri “On the Lake” trips. Those winners are Ron Barclay of Tunas and Kathleen Harter of Springfield.

Another 10 entrants’ names were drawn to win $1,000 cash, taxes paid. They are: Raymond Carr of Paragould, Arkansas; Marlene DeWeese of Easton; Scott Fischer of St. Charles; William Greer of Poplar Bluff; Jessica McDowell of Kahoka; Elaine Miller of St. Louis; Jeremy Nall of Sikeston; Sandy Oppland of Sunset Hills; Mike Rodgers of Ellisville; and Bonnie Roller of St. Peters.

On each of the remaining two draw dates, players can choose which drawing they wish to submit an entry for:

  1. 1.   Adventure Cruise (one winner per drawing date) - winner’s choice, trip for up to four people:
    • River Cruise in France
    • Alaskan cruise
    • Sail on a private yacht in the Caribbean
  2. 2.   Missouri "On the Lake" (two winners per drawing date) - winner’s choice, trip for up to four people:
    • Camden on the Lake, Lake of the Ozarks
    • Chateau on the Lake, Table Rock Lake
  3. 3.   $1,000 cash, taxes paid (10 winners per drawing date)
