The Lottery’s Twins-themed scratch-offs cost $10 and offer players a chance to win up to $200,000. The game offered three of those top $200,000 prizes when it launched in April.
But for serious MLB fans, losing the first time around might be better, as the second-chance drawings that have been going on since April offer amazing prize packages, including a three-night stay at the Radisson Blu Mall of America hotel – your base of operations for the MLB All-Star Week.
Grand prize winners of the Lottery’s second-chance drawings will receive passes to the All-Star FanFest, All-Star Sunday sponsored by Taco Bell, the Home Run Derby, and of course the big show – two tickets to the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.
There will be five grand prize winners, and each will receive $2,000 in cash on top of their pair of passes to All-Star events.
The Minnesota Lottery also wants to give second-place prize winners an All-Star experience – they’re giving out 20 tickets for 10 second-place winners and a guest to attend the 2014 All-Star Game too!
While the second-place prize doesn’t include passes to the rest of the events on All-Star Weekend, the 10 winners will be given a one-night stay at the Radisson Blu Mall of America and $500 cash to help them better enjoy the weekend.
The ticket giveaways continue for third and fourth and fifth-prize winners with the second-chance drawings.
10 third-prize winners will receive “Summer Mini-Season Tickets”, two tickets to eight Minnesota Twins home games during the 2014 regular season.
40 fourth-prize winners and their guests will be put up in one of Target Field’s party suites for one home game, with paid-for food, more prize drawings, and “other surprises,” according to the second-chance promotion’s brochure.
And for 80 more lucky fans, the fifth-place prize in the second-chance drawing will be two tickets to sit in the Legends Club during a home game, with a $40 food voucher.
If you’re not among the 145 people who will win tickets to All-Star Weekend, the Midsummer Classic itself, or home game ticket packages, you can still win awesome Twins prize packages.
700 sixth-place winners can choose from either a home or away prize package. Both include a replica home or away jersey, but each prize package comes with different MLB licensed Twins gear.
You can learn all about those prize packages, the official rules for the Twins scratch-off game and second-chance drawing, and drawing dates on the Minnesota Lottery’s All-Star second-chance page.
The Lottery has already passed the halfway point for second-chance prize drawings, and the end of the next entry period is July 16, so get your scratch off tickets now and enter non-winning tickets into the second chance drawing.
There will be almost 850 winners when all the drawings are over, so why not try your luck? You could be headed to Minneapolis for All-Star Weekend with one very lucky friend.
