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...

N.M. Lottery Releases Jeff Dunham Scratch-offs

Dunham told the Las Cruces Sun News that he decided to partner with the New Mexico Lottery because the tickets are “something with social redeeming value,” because the proceeds help fund college scholarships. “The Legislative Lottery Scholarship is key to helping New Mexico’s students afford college, and I’m honored to be a part of the action,” Dunham said. The new scratch-offs each cost $5 and offer players a chance to win up to $50,000.  The overall odds for the game are better than 1 in 4.  Players can view a complete prize list with odds, and check out the ticket design on the New Mexico Lottery’s Scratchers webpage. Along with the new game, the Lottery announced a special second-chance promotion specifically for the Jeff Dunham tickets. The entry period opened along with the tickets’ release today, and will remain open until Feb. 13.  The drawing for the second-chance prizes will be held Feb. 18. Three lucky winners and their guests will all receive tickets to Dunham’s “Disorderly Conduct Tour” performance March 15 in Rio Rancho, N.M. One top prize winner and a guest of their choosing will win themselves a meet-and-greet opportunity with Dunham, and the top prize and second prize both include premium seating and an autographed animatronic doll.

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.
