July 19, 2013 – The Kentucky Lottery’s July “Get Your Game On” promotion begins Sunday, July 21, and players can get free tickets for playing Powerball with the Kentucky Lottery.
One week out of every month, the Kentucky Lottery runs its “Get Your Game On Promotion” where they offer a different prize to lottery players just for playing.
This month, the Lottery is offering Powerball players a chance to scoop one of Kentucky’s Cash Ball prizes for free.
Players who buy $10 worth of Powerball tickets will receive a free $2 Cash Ball quick pick ticket, which is good for either two or four sets of numbers on a single Cash Ball drawing.
The Kentucky Lottery offers players the option of wagering either fifty cents or $1 for each Cash Ball play, and the amount you bet on your ticket decides the amount you win.
The top prize for a fifty cent wager is $100,000, and the top prize for a $1 wager is $200,000.
Much like Powerball, Cash Ball drawings pick four white balls with numbers from 1-33, and a “Cash Ball” from a pool of 1-31.
If you match all five, you win the top prize for your wager, but there are a total of eight ways to win with Cash Ball.
You can learn how to play Cash Ball, and see all the prizes offered on the game here.
Timing is everything sometimes, and there couldn’t be a better time to “Get Your Game On” with the Kentucky Lottery, because if nobody wins the Powerball jackpot Saturday night, it will roll over and creep closer to the $200 million mark.
