Gear up for “Holiday Hoopla™”! It all started at noon today. You can enter nonwinning tickets from the 11 holiday-themed scratch tickets we’ll have out this year for a shot a $500 cash prize or a pair of suite tickets to the men’s college basketball tournament this coming spring in Des Moines.
A total of 126 prizes are up for grabs in the Holiday Hoopla promotion – 78 prizes of $500 cash and 48 prizes of a pair of men’s basketball suite tickets. There are 12 entry periods through early January, with the final drawing on Jan. 5.
The number of cash prizes up for grabs will increase with each drawing, while the number of college basketball tournament tickets stays the same, with four pair on the line each time. Entries are good only for the drawing in which they are entered, and then the process will start over at the beginning of each entry period.
Each college basketball tournament prize package includes a pair of tickets in an exclusive suite for a tournament session in Des Moines at the Iowa Events Center on March 17 or 19. Food, beverages and a parking pass also are included, meaning each prize package is valued at more than $900!
The first entry period started at noon today and will be open until 11:59 a.m. Oct. 19. The first drawing will be held Oct. 20. The remaining 11 entry periods will begin at noon on Monday and end at 11:59 a.m. the following Monday, with a new drawing being held each week. Each nonwinning holiday scratch ticket that you enter will count as one entry into the next drawing, regardless of the price of the ticket.
