Last Day to Vote for Kansas Ugly Sweater Contest

Jan. 16, 2014 – The top contestants in the Kansas Lottery’s Ugly Sweater contest broke out their best, worst sweaters for this holiday season, and the most tinsel-draped, ornament-ed, and even rope-lit sweaters are on the Lottery’s website for the final vote. Voting by Lottery fans and ugly sweater lovers began one week ago, and tomorrow the votes will be tallied to determine the winners of this year’s Ugly Sweater contest. A little embarrassment can go a long way, too.  In return for having the ugliest sweater, as decided by voters, and posting pictures on the Lottery’s Facebook page, the finalist voted as the grand prize winner will receive $100 worth of Kansas Lottery scratch-offs. There are second and third prizes as well.  The second prize winner will score $50 in Kansas Lottery coupons, and the third prize winner will get $25 worth of coupons, which can be redeemed for scratch-offs. The Lottery will accept votes until 5 p.m. tomorrow, Jan. 17, and the winner will be announced shortly after voting closes. To vote, head to the Kansas Lottery’s Ugly Sweater Contest...

Powerball Ultimate Tailgate – One Month Left

Jan. 9, 2014 – Powerball players in 18 states have just one more month to enter into their state’s Powerball Ultimate Tailgate promotion.  200 contest winners from participating states will live out every football fan’s dream – a five-day trip to the Football Hall of Fame, and a chance to hang out with 100 Pro Football Hall of Famers. The Ultimate Tailgate promotion opened in November, and with about one month left to enter into each state’s individual contest drawings, now is the time for serious football fans to enter for their chance to win. Winners from each state will be provided with transportation to Cleveland, Ohio, to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the Hall of Fame Fan Festival, which will run May 3-4 at the I-X Center there. The night before the Fan Festival begins, Ultimate Tailgate Party winners and their guests will eat dinner with one of the 100 Hall of Famers, and then team up with another to compete in a tournament of tailgating games. Players must purchase $10 or more on a single Powerball ticket for their ticket to be eligible.  That’s at least five plays, and with the jackpot sitting at $80 million right now, that’s five chances to win some serious cash. Each state has a different number of passes to the Ultimate Tailgate Party available.  The 18 states participating in this one-of-a-kind promotion are: New Hampshire Vermont New York Rhode Island New Jersey Pennsylvania Ohio West Virginia North Carolina Indiana – Hoosier Lottery Kentucky Tennessee Florida Iowa South Dakota Nebraska Kansas New...

Ultimate Tailgate Party Powerball Promotion

Nov. 8, 2013 – How’d you like to meet a professional football legend?  How about 100 of them?  That’s just the opportunity Powerball players can have if they enter into the Ultimate Tailgate Party promotion in any of 18 participating states. Two hundred contest winners will get a football fan’s dream vacation – a 5-day-long trip to Cleveland, Ohio to celebrate the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary with 100 Hall of Famers at the 2014 Fan Festival. The Fan Festival, which will run May 3 and 4 at the I-X Center in Cleveland, is the first-ever celebration of the fans behind Pro Football and the Hall of Fame, and pro football greats are excited to recognize the fans who supported them as players. Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw said in an I-X Center press release “I realize more than ever how much I owe to the fans… this Fan Fest is a great chance to say thanks to the Hall of Fame fans of the game.” The Fan Festival will feature Hall of Famers discussing next season’s draft, giving commentary through a sports movie film festival, signing autographs and even holding a football clinic on a 100-yard field in the I-X Center. While the Fan Festival will be open to anyone who buys a ticket (ticket sales begin in December), Powerball contest winners will be treated to the Ultimate Tailgate Party the evening before the Fan Festival kicks off.  What’s any pro football event without a great tailgate, right? The 200 winners of the Powerball contest and their lucky guests will get to sit down to dinner with one of the 100 Hall of Famers present.  After dinner, winners will team up with a different Hall of Famer to compete in a tournament of several different games. Each winner will receive round-trip airfare for themselves and three guests.  Once in Cleveland, participating lotteries will also provide them with two hotel rooms, meals and transportation. Along with admission to the Ultimate Tailgate Party...
