Iowa’s “Ride To Riches” Benefitting Veterans
Jan. 7, 2014 – The Iowa Lottery released its newest scratch-off game Monday. Called Ride to Riches, proceeds from the new game will help support veterans and their families through the Iowa Veterans Trust Fund.
For one lucky Iowa Lottery player, one of the new $1 Ride to Riches tickets could turn into a set of keys for a brand-new 2013 Victory Boardwalk motorcycle, custom-painted by one of Iowa’s most famous artists.
That prize will be awarded through an exclusive Ride to Riches second chance drawing, but before anyone enters for a second chance, they’ll have to play the game first.
The new $1 tickets offer players a chance to win up to $1,000, and features six other instant cash prizes. The game has overall odds better than 1 in 5, and playing is simple: scratch off the play area, and if you uncover a picture that looks like a motorcycle, you’ll win the cash prize shown.
Non-winning tickets for the new veterans benefit game could be worth more than 30 times the top prize offered on each ticket though, so players won’t want to toss aside tickets that don’t turn into instant cash.
The 2013 Victory Boardwalk motorcycle up for grabs in the second chance promotion features a custom-painted gas tank by Iowa’s own Ray “Bubba” Sorenson II.
Sorenson is best known for his annual Memorial Day painting of the Freedom Rock in Iowa, which honors veterans of the U.S. military in a unique way each year.
With his touch, the Victory Boardwalk that the Iowa Lottery is giving away is worth an incredible $21,499, according to the Lottery’s website. Along with the one-of-a-kind prize, the Lottery will also chip in for state and federal taxes on the brand-new bike, and they’ll pay the licensing and title fees for the winner too.
Ride to Riches is not just a new game, but a new way for Iowa Lottery players to support veterans in the state. With chances to win up to $1,000 or a shot at the one-of-a-kind Victory motorcycle, it’s definitely worth taking a first or second chance on the new game.
