July 24, 2013 – Mmmmm… the savory, delicious taste of… money? Yep, tempting bacon lovers all over the state, Nebraska’s new Bacon Bucks scratch-off game has plenty of prizes waiting to be served up hot.
Just don’t eat the ticket.
The new $5 game from the Nebraska Lottery is about as delicious-looking as cardboard gets, with images of crispy bacon all over the play surface, almost distracting enough to make you forget about the three chances at $50,000 the game offers.
There’s at least two ways to win any prize on Bacon Bucks. Players must match their numbers to any of the five winning numbers to claim the prize shown. If a sandwich-looking symbol comes up, it’s automatically worth double the prize shown.
To celebrate the real star of the game – bacon – there’s a “frying pan bonus” featured on the ticket, which you’ll win if you match two bacon symbols in the play area.
There’s a total of 109,383 winning tickets out there, and about 52,000 of them will score you at least enough cash to break even and bring home some bacon – the real kind or the green kind.
And if you aren’t one of the more than 100,000 lucky winners, your non-winning Bacon Bucks ticket is eligible for entry into Nebraska’s Lucky Summer ’13 Giveaway, a second-chance drawing where 20 winners will split $150,000.
