A thank you is in order for all of our customers, fans and supporters who made their way to the Ohio Lottery booth at the State Fair– you are appreciated!
On Saturday, July 30th, many people came to play the Monopoly Millionaires’ Club Scavenger Hunt and won great prizes. In fact, so many people came we thought it best to throw in a few extra prizes. In addition to the 21 drawings held, another three names were drawn. These three winners each received a full book (50 tickets) of $10 Monopoly Millionaires’ Club instant tickets.
“I had a lot of people tell me how they come to see us every year,” said Allison Turner, Sponsorship and Promotions Manager at the Ohio Lottery. “They would tell me ‘We haven’t missed a year…we always come to your tent.”
On Saturday, August 6th, our Cash Explosion staff hosted Cash Fest, a fan appreciation day. In addition to the mini game shows hosted, there was also music, dancing and a lip sync battle! Contestants filled the area around the booth, with what seemed to be a never ending line, and participated in the eight hour event.
“Cash Fest was well received at the fair,” said Ken Dauenhauer, Cash Explosion Program Administrator. “It’s really our way to give back to our fans.”
Throughout the 12 days of the Ohio State Fair, over 921,000 people attended, making it the 2nd highest participation on record. We know it was packed, with hot weather and long lines, but we also know that our fans stuck it through and had a great time!
See you next year!
