INDIANAPOLIS (March 24, 2014) - The Hoosier Millionaire Show is back and it kicks off in Evansville this week! After nearly a decade, Hoosiers will have a chance to hear host Tony Lamont say the iconic words, "From Evansville, it's time to play Hoosier Millionaire!"
Hoosier Millionaire fans who are hoping to be contestants on the Evansville show at the Centre Theatre on Thursday, March 27 still have a chance! They can enter their non-winning Hoosier Millionaire tickets for the chance to be selected at the show, on the spot, to be the show's sixth contestant. That lucky player will join the five who were chosen from non-winning ticket entries at www.hoosierlottery.com and will compete for the chance to appear on the 25th Anniversary Championship show!
Entry into the show is free and theatre doors open at 5 p.m. Hoosier Millionaire fans are welcome at that time, as seating will be limited. Entertainment will be provided until the selection of the sixth contestant at approx. 6:30 p.m. The show will begin at approx. 7 p.m.
Longtime Hoosier Millionaire favorites Mark Patrick, Tony Lamont and Barbara Hobbs will be hosting the road shows throughout the state, as well as at the finale, stirring up the nostalgia of years past.
The top prize winner of the Evansville show will be joined by the top winners of the shows slated for Fort Wayne, Terre Haute, New Albany, Elkhart and Indianapolis. The six players will then compete in the 25th Anniversary Championship show at the Indiana State Fair on August 16 for the chance to be the next Hoosier Millionaire.
The Evansville contestants selected from their mylottery entries are Tiffany DeVon of Elkhart, Jack Binkley of Wolcottville, Scott Sparling of Crown Point, Mark Lutzow of Crown Point and Ty Kipker of Warsaw.
