DES MOINES, Iowa - Record entries in its holiday promotions over the past three years and player requests for more second chances to win have led the Iowa Lottery to extend its holiday campaign this year to a span of four months with three drawings offering gift cards, home entertainment packages and trips to Las Vegas.
The "Winter of Winners" promotion kicked off Wednesday as the first eight of the lottery's holiday-themed instant-scratch games began sales for the season. Two more holiday scratch games will hit the streets Oct. 31.
"Our players have pushed entries in our holiday campaigns to record levels in each of the last three years," Lottery CEO Terry Rich said. "So, we've expanded things this year and are doing our best to meet players' wishes by getting an early start. We want our players to know we're offering them dozens of sought-after prizes and multiple chances to win."
Winter of Winners offers a total of 150 prizes, including 10 trip packages to THE PALMS™ Casino and Resort in Las Vegas. Players' entries in the drawings will correspond to the purchase price of the tickets they enter. For example, a $2 ticket will receive two entries in the promotion, while a $10 ticket is good for 10 entries.
"You could win the perfect present for yourself or someone on your gift list," Rich said. "Or better yet, how about a trip to Las Vegas for a get-away after the holidays?"
To enter the promotion, Iowa Lottery players must join or already be members of the lottery's free VIP Club. Complete rules are available on the lottery website at www.ialottery.com and drawing results also will be posted there.
Here is the drawing schedule:
The entry deadline for the first drawing is noon Nov. 12; noon Dec. 12 for the second drawing; and noon Jan. 12 for the final drawing.
To enter, players will visit the Winter of Winners promotion page on the lottery's website. There, they will click on an "Enter Here" button to enter the 10-digit entry number from the front of a nonwinning holiday scratch ticket available this season in Iowa, along with the ticket number from the back.
