Oct. 31, 2013 – Starting today, Rhode Island Lottery players can enter for a chance to win their way into the most legendary tailgate party of all time.
Players who spend $10 or more on a single Powerball ticket can enter non-winning tickets into the Ultimate Tailgate Party Second-Chance promotion.
The promotion lasts from Oct. 31 to Feb. 8, and when the Rhode Island Lottery draws the winning entries, those lucky Powerball players will join other promotion winners from across the country in Cleveland, Ohio, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Winners of the promotion will be a part of the first-ever Hall of Fame Fan Fest, which will celebrate 50 years of the Hall of Fame, as well as 50 years of fans’ support.
But the promotion isn’t called the “Ultimate Tailgate Party” for nothing – winners from all 18 participating states will hang out with all 100 Hall of Famers the night before the Fan Fest opens in the largest indoor tailgate of all time!
Not only will Powerball promotion winners get to have dinner with a Hall of Famer, they’ll also team up with another Hall of Famer for some after-dinner competition in a tournament of games like mini-golf or darts.
The main event, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Fan Fest, will be held May 3-4. Attendees, including contest winners, can listen to Hall of Famers talk about next season’s draft, give sports-movie commentary, and even go through a clinic on a 100-yard football field.
All 100 Hall of Famers will be giving autographs, too, making the Fan Fest and the Ultimate Tailgate Party Powerball promotion the stuff of dreams for any football fan.
To enter into the contest, Powerball players must be registered with the Rhode Island Lottery’s VIP Player’s Club. Signing up is completely free, and no football fan wants to miss out on this chance.
