Deal Or No Deal Drawing Results AnnouncedFebruary 6, 2009
West Virginia Lottery Director John Musgrave today (Feb. 6) announced the names of eight winners in the Deal Or No Deal drawing held at lottery headquarters in Charleston.
The four winners of a trip for two to Hollywood for Deal Or No Deal tapings with Howie Mandell were Linda Hickel of Walker; Mark Adkins of Leon; Martha Phillips of Coalton, and John Ellis of Logan.
Musgrave said each of 21 participating lotteries will send their respective winners to California; the trips are expected to be scheduled for April or May. “During those tapings, each West Virginia finalist could win cash prizes up to $2.5 million . . . from the combined tapings, Deal Or No Deal producers will choose 26 players to appear on a televised event during which they can win additional cash prizes.”
In addition to the four entries winning Hollywood trip prizes, Musgrave said the Lottery drew four entries that will be entered into a cash drawing held in Georgia for finalists from the 21 participating lotteries. “On September 15, one of those entries will be drawn and a wheel will be spun to determine the prize; wheel prizes range from $250,000 to $2.5 million.”
The four winners whose entries will be entered into the September drawing are Robert Corrigan of Wheeling; Betty Kostelac of Shinnston; Gloria Fields of Spencer; and Sherri Massey of Clendenin.
