The big event will be at The Lerner, downtown Elkhart at 7 p.m. and is FREE to the public. Audience members 18 and older are invited to submit non-winning Hoosier Millionaire tickets on-site for the chance to compete with five other previously selected contestants.
The top cash winner from Elkhart will join winners from shows already conducted in Evansville, Fort Wayne, Terre Haute and New Albany. The final regional show will be conducted in Indianapolis on August 16 at the Indiana State Fair. All six top winners will then compete in the 25th Anniversary Championship Show at the fair that evening for the chance to be the next Hoosier Millionaire!
Doors at The Lerner will open at 5 p.m. Non-winning tickets must be entered on-site by 6:15 p.m. for a chance to be the sixth contestant.
The five contestants already set to take the stage in Elkhart were selected after submitting non-winning Hoosier Millionaire tickets at www.hoosierlottery.com. They are LuAnn Kissinger of North Webster, James Hart of Culver, Cathy Clark of Columbus, Ronald Arthur of Indianapolis and Danny Conn of Coatesville.
Longtime Hoosier Millionaire favorites Mark Patrick, Tony Lamont and Barbara Hobbs are hosting all shows and will be available to meet with fans and sign autographs after the Elkhart show.
Hold onto those tickets!
In addition to awarding great cash prizes at the Elkhart and Indianapolis regional shows and possibly $1 million at the finale, the Hoosier Lottery will conduct a second chance drawing from non-winning Hoosier Millionaire tickets entered electronically, via mylottery , for $75,000! And, if the $1 million is not won during the finale, the Lottery will conduct another drawing from the electronic entries and award the prize to one lucky player!
The date for the $75,000 drawing, and the $1 million drawing, if it is necessary, have not yet been determined and will be announced on www.hoosierlottery.com
