The Florida Lottery and the Miami Dolphins today announced a partnership to offer South Florida Lottery players a chance to win great prizes in the Dolphins Fin-tastic Fantasy 5® Football Promotion. Beginning today through Tuesday, December 6, players who purchase a FANTASY 5® ticket of $5 or more, at select retailer locations in the Miami, West Palm Beach and Ft. Myers area, will receive a voucher that contains a unique serial number to be entered on the Florida Lottery’s website for a chance to win Dolphins experiential prizes, including season tickets and a 2012 Ford® Fiesta.
“The Lottery is pleased to partner once again with the Miami Dolphins for this special promotion,” said Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell. “The exclusive prizes being offered are sure to give Lottery players and Dolphins fans something to cheer about.”
Five Dolphins Fin-tastic Fantasy 5 Football drawings will be held from October 12 to December 7, 2011, from vouchers entered the night before each drawing. In each of the five drawings, two players will win tickets to the Dolphins vs. Jets final season game on January 1, 2012, where they will have the chance during the game’s halftime to win cash prizes of up to $2,500 or a 2012 Ford® Fiesta!
“With last year’s program being such a hit with fans and lottery players throughout the state, we are excited to again partner with the Florida Lottery on this special promotion,” said Jim Rushton, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships and Integrated Media for the Miami Dolphins.
A total of 155 Miami Dolphins prizes will be awarded in the second chance drawings. In addition to the Ford Fiesta Giveaway, other prizes being awarded in this promotion include:
• A “Dolphins VIP for a Day” experience at Sun Life Stadium, which includes two Ford Sideline Club and Lounge passes, two executive suite tickets, a private stadium tour, a meet and greet with the Dolphins CEO or player personnel, an introduction on the field that will be broadcast on the stadium video board, a souvenir photo taken on the field, and a $500 Dolphins Team Store credit;
• A “Dolphins Game Day Experience,” consisting of two 100-level game tickets, two tickets to Nat’s BBQ Bash and one parking pass;
• Dolphins season tickets; and
• Game-day tickets.
And, as an added value to all players, each FANTASY 5 ticket will also contain a promotional code that can be entered on Dolphins.com for $5 off Dolphins game tickets or team merchandise. Additional information about the second chance promotion is available on the Florida Lottery website.
Florida voters, by a two-to-one margin, approved a constitutional amendment in 1986 authorizing the state to operate a lottery for the purpose of generating significant additional moneys for education. To date, the Florida Lottery has funded Bright Futures scholarships for more than 500,000 Florida students to attend college in our state. Floridians continue to show their support by purchasing billions of dollars in Lottery products per year, resulting in contributions of more than $22 billion to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund since 1988.
