Hoosier Millionaire wins pile up!
Players can enter to win slots on regional shows
INDIANAPOLIS (March 17, 2014) - Hoosier Millionaire fans are winning big!
Over $6.1 million has been won since January on the popular Hoosier Millionaire Scratch-off ticket. But there is more to Hoosier Millionaire than instant wins!
Players still have the opportunity to appear on one of the six Hoosier Millionaire regional game shows throughout the state this spring and summer. So far, five contestants each have been selected for the shows in Evansville and Fort Wayne, but players can still enter non-winning tickets through mylottery second chance promotion at www.hoosierlottery.com for a shot at shows in Terre Haute, New Albany, Elkhart and Indianapolis.
In addition to the contestant selection via the mylottery entries, at each of the six shows, players will be able to submit non-winning Hoosier Millionaire tickets on-site. One ticket will be selected and that lucky player will join the other contestants on the stage. The top winners from each of the shows will compete in the 25th anniversary championship show in August at the Indiana State Fair for the chance to be the next Hoosier Millionaire!
Tiffany DeVon of Elkhart, Jack Binkley of Wolcottville, Scott Sparling of Crown Point, Mark Lutzow of Crown Point and Ty Kipker of Warsaw are confirmed as the first five contestants for the Evansville show on March 27. The first five contestants for the Fort Wayne show on April 17 are Ricky Rhodes of Kokomo, Mary Jane Head of Alexandria, Glenda Catt of Peru, Jeanette Bogacki of Evansville and Susie Saunders of Columbus.
Players can visit www.hoosierlottery.com for full details on the second chance promotion and regional show locations. Seating is limited at all events.
