Five of the six contestants for the March 27 Evansville show have also been selected. The sixth contestant will be selected on site from the audience.
Five more contestant drawings throughout spring and summer!
Hoosier Millionaire is just getting started! Players have until July 6 to enter for a chance to be a contestant on one of the regional shows. In addition to entering for a chance to be drawn as one of five pre-selected contestants on each show, they can attend the actual shows and take a shot at being selected on site as the sixth contestant.
The top winners from each of the shows (Evansville, Fort Wayne, Terre Haute, New Albany, Elkhart and Indianapolis) will be a part of the 25th Anniversary Championship Show at the Indiana State Fair in which one of them could walk away as the next Hoosier Millionaire!
