— -- 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.”

Hoosier Lottery is offering up to four people the chance to win 20 years of bacon.

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.
