Feb. 13, 2014 – Nebraska Powerball players hoping to win their way to the Ultimate Tailgate party in May have only a few hours left to enter Powerball tickets into the Nebraska Lottery’s Hall of Fame Tailgate Party drawing.
Last week, a system error caused the Tailgate Party promotion to end early, on Feb. 7. Qualifying $10 Powerball tickets stopped printing with a voucher for entry into the contest after 11:59 p.m. that night.
As a result, players who purchased tickets before the real cut-off time, 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8, may not have received the necessary vouchers for entry into the Tailgate Party promotion.
After the error was discovered, the Nebraska Lottery extended the entry deadline for players with an entry voucher until 11:59 p.m. today, Feb. 13.
Players can only enter $10 (or more) Powerball tickets purchased on or before Saturday, Feb. 8 into the contest. Players who purchased a qualifying ticket who did not receive an entry voucher should call the Nebraska Lottery to receive an entry code.
The Nebraska Lottery is instructing players to call their offices at: 402-471-6100.
Four contest winners from Nebraska will be chosen tomorrow, Feb. 14, to receive the once-in-a-lifetime trip out to Cleveland, to help celebrate the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary.
The winners will join 196 others from the 17 other participating states for the Ultimate Tailgate Party, where they’ll have dinner and compete in classic tailgating games with 100 Pro Football Hall of Famers.
