Happy Hockey Season

Oct 08, 14 Happy Hockey Season

Oct. 8, 2014 – Tonight marks the official beginning of hockey season; pucks will drop between eight different teams and hockey fans everywhere (like myself) will rejoice.

This also means that those state lotteries who partner with local hockey teams will be getting in on the action as well.

Just as they do for football, basketball and baseball teams, state lotteries will be offering players chances to win tickets, merchandise and even score some cash during games.

The Massachusetts Lottery has the coolest prizes for hockey fans so far – in a second chance promotion for the new Boston Bruins scratch-off, five winners will win their way onto the ice in the On Ice Challenge.

That prize also comes with tickets to several games, jerseys, a ride on the Zamboni, and even some time to hang out with Bruins players before the games.

In the same second-chance promotion, lottery players can win retired-jersey banners that are autographed by the players they honor!

OK, you can’t win the actual banners you’d find in the Bruins stadium, but you can win 3-foot circular banners for your fan-cave, which is still very cool.

Massachusetts may be the first to announce their contest, but don’t think they’ll be the only lottery offering awesome prize packs.

The Pennsylvania Lottery says they’ll be giving away hockey and basketball tickets in a Fall Ticket Giveaway later this┬áseason.

Last year, four lottery players – two Flyers fans and two Penguins fans – won game tickets and VIP experiences before the game.

Blackhawks fans might see a promotion from the Illinois Lottery again this year; last season, after the Blackhawks won their second Stanley Cup, the Illinois Lottery gave away 500 authentic Blackhawks jerseys to celebrate.

Be sure to check LotteryHUB News for updates on all the hockey promotions to come, we’ll have all the details for you once promotions are announced.

Until then, happy hockey season.
