Georgia Lottery offers big prizes at sporting events

Hunter Williams

The Georgia Lottery will be giving students a chance to win $1,000 at three separate Georgia Southern home football games this season starting with the first game against Savannah State.

To have a chance at winning the $1,000 prize students must attend the game and visit the Georgia Lottery’s Dollars for Degrees tent. A representative will then give the student a keyword and a number to text it to which will enter them in the drawing for prizes.

Two students will be selected to win the $1,000 grand prize and multiple students will win $100 gift cards.

The home games selected for these giveaways are Aug. 3 against Savannah State, Oct. 27 against Appalachian State and Dec. 3 against Troy.

The Georgia Lottery started this program in 2014 in an attempt to give more back to students in addition to the $8 billion funded HOPE scholarship.
