Most people think of winning Oregon Lottery prizes when they buy tickets for Scratch-it games, a big jackpot game like Oregon’s Game Megabucks or Powerball, or games like Keno and Win for Like. Thanks to social media, there’s a way to win great Oregon Lottery prizes that cost nothing.
For a chance to win tickets to the Cape Blanco Music Festival or an all-expense-paid trip to Michigan to watch the Oregon State Beavers play the Michigan Wolverines this football season, the Lottery’s Facebook page is the place to go. “For over a year, the Lottery has been offering great prizes on our Facebook page,” said Oregon Lottery Online Marketing Manager Shad Barnes. “By simply following us on Facebook and commenting on one of our giveaways, people are entered for a chance to win some really outstanding prizes.”
Currently, over 46,000 people have become Oregon Lottery Facebook followers. Given the odds of winning games like Powerball or Mega Millions, the odds of winning a Lottery Facebook prize are much better. “Here are some tips to help make sure people don't miss any of the amazing chances to win posted on our Facebook page,” said Barnes. “Be sure to prioritize our posts in your news feed. First, go to the Lottery’s Facebook Timeline page. Then, hover over the ‘Following’ button. Finally, select ‘See First,’ that way you’ll be sure to always see these posts when we put them online.”
Go to the Oregon Lottery Facebook page and be watching for other great prizes including tickets to Portland Timbers and Thorns matches, the Bi-Mart Country Music Festival as well as 100 of the new “10X” Scratch-it tickets.
Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned over $9 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements.
