In January, we released a bacon-themed scratch game. Tickets in the $1 “I Heart Bacon” game of course prominently feature artwork of strips of bacon. And you win a prize by finding a bacon symbol in the play area on your ticket. The game’s top prize is $1,000.
The folks at our main warehouse in Ankeny let us know yesterday that they’d sent out our last pack of tickets in that game. Tickets are likely still available in most retail locations, but those are all we have left. We’re getting close to a sell-out!
Mmmmm … bacon!
And in news about another game, what’s up with Lucky for Life here in Iowa? The lotto game with drawings on Mondays and Thursdays debuted here in Iowa in late January. Late last month, Roy King of Sioux City became our first winner of $25,000 a year for life in the game. And as of last night, we’ve had three $5,000 winners in the past week!
Two tickets – one in Des Moines and the other in Jefferson – each won a $5,000 prize in Monday’s Lucky for Life drawing. And a ticket sold in Webster City won a prize of $5,000 in last night’s drawing.
We’re on a roll! I wonder when we’ll see our first top-prize winner of $1,000 a day for life here in Iowa?
