Hoosier Lottery, Indians swing for $1 million
$5,000 prize also added this year
INDIANAPOLIS (April 7, 2014) - Indianapolis Indian fans will once again have a chance to win big beginning with the season opener on Thursday.
The "Million Dollar Swing," courtesy of the Hoosier Lottery, will award $1 million if an Indians batter hits a target located just inside the right field foul pole in the fifth inning of a home contest at Victory Field. In addition, and new to this season, fans will also have the chance to win $5,000 during each home game if an Indians batter hits the aforementioned target in any inning other than the fifth.
To participate, fans must complete an entry form at www.indyindians.com/bigdreamers. Winners will be selected for each home contest during the 2014 season from the pool of entries.
Each selected winner will then receive four tickets to sit in the Hoosier Lottery Big Dreamers section (attendees must be 18 or older) at a selected Indianapolis Indians home contest. If an Indianapolis Indians batter hits the right field target during the fifth inning, all ticket-holders in the Hoosier Lottery Big Dreamers section will have the chance to win $1 million courtesy of the Hoosier Lottery.
The same policy will apply to the additional prize, with all ticket-holders in the Hoosier Lottery Big Dreamers section having the chance to win $5,000 if an Indianapolis Indians batter hits the target during any inning other than the fifth.
To be eligible for either drawing, fans must be valid ticket holders in the Hoosier Lottery Big Dreamers section and be present at Victory Field when the target is hit.
Drawings for the $1 million and the $5,000 prizes will be conducted in a separate ceremony at a later Indianapolis Indians home contest, where one winner for each will be selected from all eligible participants.
