The Wisconsin lottery, the state lottery’s sole official, says it’s offering its players a chance to win millions of dollars when it opens to the general public this weekend.
The lottery is holding a contest for lottery tickets this weekend to celebrate the state’s 100th birthday.
Tickets are only going on sale to registered lottery users, so there’s a good chance some of the money won’t go to the lottery at all.
“It’s the best way to get our stamp of approval,” lottery director Steve Smith told The Associated Press.
“People are going to want to buy tickets.”
For $2.50, you can buy a ticket for yourself, your spouse or partner, or a group of three or more.
The odds of winning depend on how many of your friends or family members have already purchased tickets, and how much you spend on them.
The state lottery also says it will have a special line for those who live in the Twin Cities metro area.
It offers up to $500 for an individual ticket, up to a maximum of $2 million in combined ticket sales.
If you live in a Twin Cities city that’s not in the state, the lottery says it has the option to send you a gift card for $5.25.
You can use the gift card to buy your tickets for $2 each or $1 million in total.
The winner gets $1.5 million, and if you don’t win, you’ll be the lucky winner of a trip to Disneyland or Disney World.
Tickets will be available starting Friday at the Wisconsin Lottery website and will be on sale at the end of the month.
If you’re planning a trip this weekend, it might be worth buying your tickets before they’re gone.
