Decades of Dollars Game Ending

Aug. 11, 2014 – Arkansas, Georgia, and Kentucky  Lottery players have only a few drawings left before Decades of Dollars, a twice-weekly, multi-state draw game with a top prize of $250,000 per year for 30 years, ends its run. Decades of Dollars was launched in each of the three states and Virginia in 2011 and is now being discontinued to make way for a new multi-state, premium draw game. The final Decades of Dollars drawing in each state will be Thursday, Oct. 16, which leaves just 20 more drawings in the game’s run. Each ticket costs $2, and the game is played much the same as Powerball or Mega Millions: players choose six numbers between 1 and 47, then try to match their ticket to the six winning numbers in each drawing. Players who match all six numbers win the quarter-million-dollar per year prize, but there are three other prizes that players can win with Decades of Dollars. Players can win the game’s second prize, worth $10,000, by matching five of the six winning numbers.  Matching four numbers will win players a $100 prize, the prize for matching three numbers is $10, and players who match two numbers win $2 or a free ticket. Decades of Dollars drawings are held every Monday and Thursday at 11 p.m. ET.  After the drawing tonight, Monday, Aug. 11, advance play sales will begin being limited to the number of drawings remaining; 19 plays after tonight’s drawing, 18 after Thursday’s drawing, and so on....

Free Powerball Tickets for Kentucky Players

Feb. 13, 2013 – As part of their ongoing “Get Your Game on” monthly promotions, the Kentucky Lottery is offering its players chances to win free, $2 Powerball tickets next week. Starting Sunday, Kentucky Lottery players who purchase $10 worth of Decades of Dollars plays on a single ticket will receive a $2 Quick Pick Powerball ticket for free. The Lottery can only hand out so many free Powerball tickets, so supplies are limited.  The promotion officially ends on Saturday, Feb. 22, but the supply of free Powerball tickets could run out before that date. The Lottery’s “Get Your Game On” promotions held monthly, and a different draw game is featured during each month’s giveaway.  Lucky for Powerball players, the Lottery’s free Powerball ticket giveaways could coincide with a massive jackpot – potentially more than $400 million. Wednesday night, the Powerball jackpot rolled over to sit at an estimated $330 million ahead of Saturday’s drawing.  If nobody wins the big prize Saturday night, it could roll past the $400 million mark for the beginning of the Kentucky Lottery’s free Powerball ticket giveaway. And, while the enormous Powerball jackpot might take center stage in players’ minds right now, Decades of Dollars offers players a chance to win $250,000 per year for 30 years. Each Decades of Dollars play costs $2, so to score a free Powerball ticket players will need to purchase five plays – either five lines or one line for five consecutive drawings – for Decades of Dollars. That’s five chances to win Decades of Dollars’ $7.5 million annuity jackpot (which can be taken as a $4 million lump-sum prize).  And, of course, one free chance to win the giant Powerball...

Time is Running Out on Ultimate Tailgate Promotion

Feb. 4, 2014 – For Powerball players in some states, the entry period has already closed for Powerball’s Ultimate Tailgate promotion.  For others, there are just days left to enter non-winning Powerball tickets into the contest for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Two hundred contest winners from the 18 states participating in the Ultimate Tailgate promotion will descend on Cleveland, Ohio to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the Pro Football Hall of Fame with Hall of Fame players. The Hall of Fame Fan Festival will be open Saturday and Sunday, May 3-4, and anyone who buys a ticket can attend.  Only the Ultimate Tailgate winners will be able to get to know some of the 100 Hall of Famers who will be in attendance though. Friday, May 2, before the Fan Festival begins, each of the 200 winners and their guests will have dinner with a Pro Football Hall of Famer, kicking off the Ultimate Tailgate party the right way – with food. After dinner, winners and their guests will team up with another Pro Football icon and compete against other contest winners and football greats in an Ultimate Tailgate tournament of classic tailgating games. The Ultimate Tailgate promotion is one even the casual Powerball player shouldn’t miss, and with the Powerball jackpot sitting at $215 million right now, buying a ticket and entering the contest is a two-for-one deal on life-changing opportunities. To enter, players must purchase $10 or more on a single Powerball ticket.  Non-winning tickets can then be entered into the promotion through each participating state lottery. The 18 lotteries participating in the Ultimate Tailgate promotion are: Florida Indiana – Hoosier Lottery Iowa Kansas Kentucky Nebraska New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York North Carolina Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Dakota Tennessee Vermont West Virginia...

Kentucky Lottery Will Name Kentucky Derby Festival Fanatic

Jan. 27, 2014 – Kentucky Lottery players have a chance to win their way into 25 VIP experiences during this year’s Kentucky Derby.  Through a second-chance promotion, the Lottery will name the first ever Kentucky Derby Festival Fanatic. This year’s Kentucky Derby Festival – the nearly month-long celebration leading up to the Kentucky Derby itself – will kick off officially on April 12 with Thunder over Louisville.   The Lottery’s contest winner will act as “Thundernator” this year, flipping the switch that will send tens of thousands of fireworks into the night sky. That’s just one of 25 incredible experiences in store for this year’s Kentucky Derby Festival Fanatic, the winner of a second chance contest, which is open for 5 Card Cash and Kentucky Cash Ball players. To enter, players must purchase either a $2 5 Card Cash ticket or a Cash Ball ticket for $2 or more.  Non-winning tickets can be entered into the Lottery’s Fun Club as an entry into the contest drawing.  Players will also receive points for the Lottery’s Points for Prizes store when they enter their tickets. Players can enter their tickets until just before midnight on March 11, but must be registered with the Fun Club before they can enter tickets.  Registering is simple and free, the Kentucky Lottery only needs to verify that you live in the state and are of legal age to play, and they’ll need your contact information so they can call you when you win. This is the 25th anniversary for both Thunder over Louisville and the Kentucky Lottery, so Festival CEO Mike Berry said the two groups decided to “really blow [this thing] out and make [someone] the Festival Fanatic.” Along with the chance to light the fireworks for the annual celebration, some of the other experiences the contest will award the single winner are a helicopter ride for four at the Thunder preview event April 3, four tickets to the Kentucky Derby Festival Spring Fashion Show, and VIP experiences all through...
