March 24, 2014 – Basketball fans will be excited to hear that the Florida Lottery and the Miami HEAT have again partnered to offer fans of both a chance to win ticket packages, incredible fan experiences, HEAT merchandise and more through the HEAT Playoff Experience promotion.
Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell said that “last year’s Miami HEAT promotion was a huge success,” and called the Lottery’s partnership with the HEAT a “slam dunk for HEAT fans and Lottery players alike.”
“We enjoy giving our players the opportunity to support a phenomenal Florida team and raise additional funds for our students and schools,” O’Connell said in a press release Monday.
Players who want to help support the HEAT and Florida schools through the Playoff Experience promotion will first need to pick up one of the Florida Lottery’s $5 Big 3 Power Packs.
Each “Power Pack” includes one ticket each for Powerball, Mega Millions and Florida Lotto. With the purchase of any Power Pack, players will receive a voucher, printed out along with their tickets, for entry into the Playoff Experience promotion.
From now until April 20, players who use their vouchers to enter into the Playoff Experience promotion will be entered into the first of two drawings, which will be held April 22.
Each drawing will award 27 winners with one of nine different prizes, including one Grand Prize winner who will score a “fly-away” ticket package for a Miami HEAT away playoff game.
Another second prize winner in each drawing will also win lower-level Miami HEAT season tickets for next season.
The second and final drawing will be held May 20 and will also award 27 prizes, bringing the total number of winners in the Playoff Experience promotion to 54.
Some other prizes in the promotion include autographed merchandise, tickets to a home playoff game this year, and even a basketball clinic taught by a “HEAT legend.”
After entering, players need to hang onto their Playoff Experience vouchers – the Lottery will need to verify any winnings with the voucher, not just the online entry.
