Three Rhode Island PowerBall® Players Win Trips
To Tailgate With 100 Pro Football Hall of Famers
Three Rhode Island PowerBall® players, along with three of their guests, were selected to win an exclusive VIP trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame 50th Anniversary Fan Festival in Cleveland, Ohio this May. One of the winners, Susan Costa of East Providence, along with her husband, are thrilled to go since it's his birthday the day they leave. For a complete list of winners, please visit the Rhode Island Lottery Promotion Winners page.
PowerBall® players had the opportunity to enter their non-winning $10 or higher PowerBall® tickets on the Rhode Island Lottery's website for the 2nd chance to win. The trip includes roundtrip airfare; hotel accommodations; ground transportation; $500 cash; tickets to the Ultimate Tailgate Party private event, Pro Football Hall of Fan Festival, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame; a guaranteed minimum prize of $1,000; and a chance to win additional cash prizes, including a $1 million prize!
At the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ultimate Tailgate Party, 200 Lottery winners from across the U.S. and their guests will mingle with more than 100 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees. Plus, winners and their guests will enjoy dinner with a Pro Football Hall of Famer at their table. Then, they'll participate in a tournament of games, which includes darts, miniature golf and billiards, with another member of the Hall of Fame.
