The deadline to enter the fourth Bonus Bucks drawing is coming fast. Cash 5 Bonus Bucks entry slips issued before 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 27 will be valid for the June 3 drawing. The lottery teamed up with Charlotte Motor Speedway to offer folks the chance to win more in this drawing: Each entry gives you an extra chance to win not only $50,000 but also a 2013 Toyota Tundra.
It’s the same truck that set the pace for the truck racers at the NCEL 200 last weekend. This mighty machine has a 381 horsepower V8 engine under the hood. Passengers in the double cab interior will enjoy the comfort of front bucket seats and dual zone air conditioning. The exterior is painted silver sky metallic with chrome bumpers and fog lamps. Tech enthusiasts will like the USB port with iPod connectivity and hands-free phone capability.
In addition to the grand prize package, three $1,000 prizes and one $5,000 prize will be awarded. It’s easy to be eligible to win. To get any entry slip for a Bonus Bucks drawing, make a $5 Cash 5 purchase in one of the two following ways:
• Select five sets of numbers for one drawing on a single ticket purchase
• Choose one set of numbers for five drawings on a single ticket purchase
When you do this, an entry slip will be automatically generated (at no extra cost) along with your separate $5 Carolina Cash 5 ticket. Make sure to get your Cash 5 ticket and your entry slip at the time of purchase – and keep them both. After all, both could make you a winner.
Bonus Bucks entry slips issued after May 27 will be valid for the next drawing. Here is the schedule:
• Draw #4 - Entry Deadline: May 27, 2013 Drawing Date: June 3, 2013
• Draw #5 - Entry Deadline: July 17, 2013 Drawing Date: July 24, 2013
To find out the five prize-winning numbers randomly selected in the fourth Bonus Bucks drawing, check the Bonus Bucks page on the lottery’s website on June 3, or call the lottery’s customer service hotline at 877-962-7529. Prizes won in the Bonus Bucks drawings must be claimed at one of the lottery’s regional claim centers, or by mail. That means winners’ names will be announced only after that process is completed.
Make sure you’ve got your entries before midnight on Monday, and best of luck to all.
