Giving Is Sweet Promotion Drawing to a Close

Jan. 14, 2014 – The Colorado Lottery reminded players all through the holiday season that “giving is sweet,” particularly when it comes to giving Colorado Lottery scratch-off tickets.

Their “Giving is Sweet” second-chance promotion is nearing its end.  Players who may have given but not gotten scratch-offs for the holidays have less than one week to enter non-winning tickets eligible for the second chance promotion.

There are four games, all holiday-themed, which players can enter into the contest.  The least expensive of the four with a $1 price tag is The Reindeer Game.  All of The Reindeer Game’s top prizes, each worth $5,000, have already been claimed, but the game still offers players 1 in 4 odds at winning smaller cash prizes instantly.

For $2, players can get a Holiday Greeting$ ticket, which offers a top prize worth $10,000.  There are three of the original five top prizes remaining, and players have a 1 in 4 chance of winning other instant prizes on each Holiday Greeting$ ticket.

Holiday Wishe$ is a $3 game with 1 in 3 odds against players winning an instant prize, the best odds of all of the tickets eligible for the Lottery’s Giving is Sweet promotion.  The game has a $35,000 top prize, and there is one of the original three top prizes remaining.

The fourth and final ticket eligible for the Giving is Sweet promotion is the $5 Holiday Red or Holiday Green tickets (same game, different colors).  The game offers 1 in 4 overall odds, and there is one $100,000 instant top prize yet to be won.

Each of the four games offers great odds and great prizes, but there are always more non-winning tickets than winners.  But those non-winning tickets could still be worth a lot of cash when the Giving is Sweet drawing comes around.

Four winners will be drawn Jan. 21; there will be an exclusive drawing for each of the four games.

The winner drawn from The Reindeer Game entries will win $1,000; the winner of the Holiday Greeting$ drawing will receive $2,000; the Holiday Wishe$ winnner will score a $3,000 prize and the Holiday Red/Holiday Green drawing will decide the winner of a $5,000 prize.
