Florida Lottery Kicks off Fan-Tastic Football Promotion

Aug 28, 14 Florida Lottery Kicks off Fan-Tastic Football Promotion

Aug. 28, 2014 – The Florida Lottery on Wednesday announced the start of their “Fan-tastic College Football Promotion,” which gives Florida Lotto players a special opportunity to win extra prizes like game tickets and college football gear.

“This is an excellent opportunity for the Lottery to work with some of the schools that receive funding through Lottery revenue, while creating a great promotion for Florida Lotto players and college football fans alike,” said Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell.

To get in on the action, players must pick up a $10 Florida Lotto ticket or a $10 Florida Lotto with Xtra ticket.  A voucher will be printed out along with every $10 Lotto ticket sold during the promotion, and that voucher can be used to enter into one of the five drawings.

To enter, Florida Lotto players first need to pick one of the participating universities to “play” with.  Five schools have partnered with the Florida Lottery for this new promotion: Florida State University, University of Florida, University of Central Florida, University of Miami and University of South Florida.

On the Fan-tastic promotion page on the Florida Lottery’s website, players can choose their favorite of the five teams, then enter into team-specific drawings.

In each of the first four drawings, the Florida Lottery will choose 50 winners from each team drawing, for a total of 250 winners in each of those first four drawings.

The first 10 winners in each drawing will win two tickets to a 2014 home game for their favorite team, along with team merchandise, $25 in Florida Lottery scratch-offs, and more.  The other 40 winners in each team drawing will win merchandise from their favorite team.

The fifth and final drawing in the promotion will be a grand prize drawing, and any entry from the first four drawings – except for winners – will count as an entry into the grand prize drawing.

Each of the five teams will have their own grand prize drawing, and five winners will be chosen in each.  Prizes range from single game tickets to season tickets – even a trip to a Bowl game!

But the big prize (which could help you get to a bowl game anyway) is a $10,000 cash prize that comes with merchandise from players’ favorite teams, as well as a chance to win even more with Florida Lottery scratch-off tickets.
