Hoosier Millionaire winning continues!
Over $3.8 million in prizes won so far; Evansville contestants selected
INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 14, 2014) - Hoosier Lottery players are loving the Hoosier Millionaire Scratch-off game-and its prizes! To date, over $3.8 million in prizes won on the game in just five weeks!
Hoosier Millionaire, popularized by the television show of the same name, was the Hoosier Lottery's first Scratch-off game. As part of the celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Hoosier Lottery has revived the Scratch-off and the game show as a live show that is hitting six cities around the state starting in March.
In addition to winning cash prizes up to $75,000 with the Hoosier Millionaire Scratch-off, players have opportunities to participate in six live Hoosier Millionaire game shows leading up to the 25th Anniversary Championship Show. Each show will feature five contestants randomly selected from the entries of non-winning Hoosier Millionaire tickets in the mylottery 2nd chance promotion on the Hoosier Lottery's web site www.hoosierlottery.com , and one contestant selected onsite from the audience. Onsite entry is with a non-winning Hoosier Millionaire ticket.
At each live show, all six contestants will then vie for the chance to win a seat on the 25th Anniversary Championship Show at the Indiana State Fair in August and the possibility of winning $1 million!
Evansville Contestants Selected! Five more shows to go!
So far, Tiffany Devon of Elkhart, Jack Binkley of Wolcottville, William Sparling of Crown Point and Mark Lutzow of Crown Point are confirmed contestants for the Evansville show.
