Jan. 17, 2014 – The Colorado Lottery has been at the National Western Stock Show all this week, giving away prizes and drawing finalists for their “Saddle Up Getaway” giveaway.
The Stock Show runs through Jan. 26, and the Lottery will be there the whole time, so players have more than a week to get to the show and enter their name for a chance at winning the Lottery’s vacation giveaway.
The grand prize drawing will be held Saturday the 25th, and will decide one winner for the Saddle Up Getaway prize package, valued at more than $2,200.
The grand prize winner will receive $1,000 from Frontier Airlines to fly anywhere in the continental U.S. The winner can choose however many tickets they want for a $1,000 total.
Then, whenever they get to where their going, the winner will get two single-stay vouchers from a Marriott hotel, which are good for a one-night stay up to $300 in value.
Whether they pocket it or put it in the bank is their choice, but the grand prize winner will also score $500 in cash.
And the “getaway” can start before that lucky winner even goes anywhere; part of the grand prize package is two VIP tickets, each worth $75, to the Finals Rodeo, right there at the Stock Show.
The grand prize winner will be chosen from a pool of 150 finalists. Each day this week and continuing until the morning of the grand prize drawing, the Lottery is drawing one winner of a daily prize and 10 finalists to be entered into the grand prize drawing.
The daily drawing prizes vary, but include Colorado Avalanche and Denver Nuggets ticket packs, Rodeo All-Star tickets and free scratch tickets – the final daily drawing on the 26th will award one lucky winner $300 worth of free scratch-off tickets.
To enter into the daily drawings, and for a chance to be a finalist in the Saddle Up Getaway drawing, players need to stop by the Colorado Lottery’s kiosk at the Stock Show and play a scratch-off ticket. Non-winning tickets can then be entered into the daily drawings.
