The Hoosiers are going whole hog.
The Indiana state lottery is offering up 20 years of free bacon to up to four lucky winners.
The $2 scratch-and-sniff tickets (which are bacon-scented) went on sale this past Tuesday and offer the chance to win several cash prizes up to $10,000. But the best prize gives people a chance to really bring home the bacon. For 20 years, four people can get up to $250 worth of bacon a year, which nets out to about 40 pounds annually.
“We’re always looking for new and exciting games, and bacon is always a popular food and it really has captured the imagination of our players and Hoosiers and – it seems – people around the country,” Hoosier Lottery vice president of marketing Jessica Powell told ABC News. “We thought this would be a fun summer game that people can take to barbecues and parties.”
The offer is part of a partnership with the Indiana Pork Board as a way to highlight the pork raised in state, and the bacon is fulfilled through McFarling Foods, a local Indiana pork supplier and member of the Indiana Pork Board.
Powell said winners cannot collect their bacon in a lump sum.
The odds of winning the grand prize are one in 4.29. No one has won yet.
