Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the Powerball Power Cruise? Powerball with Power Play players will have a chance to win the trip of a lifetime on an exclusive privately-chartered sailing of Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Brilliance of the Seas®. The entire experience has been customized for Powerball players, including unique onboard opportunities to win additional cash and prizes as well as exclusive concerts with national recording artists Goo Goo Dolls, Flo Rida and Macy Kate. The five-night cruise sets sail on January 15, 2018!

  • What games qualify for the promotion? The only qualifying purchase is a Powerball with Power Play ticket made within the promotional period for a draw within the promotional period. Powerball tickets without Power Play are not eligible. No other games are included in the promotion.

  • How do I enter? To enter, you must purchase a Powerball ticket and add Power Play, a special add-on feature that allows a winner to increase the original prize amounts (except the jackpot). If you purchase your ticket using the NCEL Subscriptions service, you will automatically be entered.

    If you purchase your ticket from a retailer, you must enter the ticket in your Lucke-Rewards account. Simply log in, go to https://rewards.lucke-zone.com/pia (the Lucke-Rewards tab) and follow the instructions provided to enter the 25-digit Lucke-Rewards code from your ticket. Players may also enter by using the NCEL’s mobile app to scan the barcode located underneath the Lucke-Rewards Entry Code label of an eligible Powerball with Power Play ticket.

    The six (6) drawings within the promotion are cumulative, so once you receive an entry it will roll over automatically into all subsequent Powerball Power Cruise drawings within the current promotion.

  • Do I have to use points to enter? This is a second chance promotion so no points are necessary to enter. The only way to enter to win is to purchase a qualifying Powerball with Power Play ticket and enter it into your Lucke-Rewards account. Upon entering your Powerball with Power Play ticket, you will receive confirmation of your entry into the current Power Cruise drawing and all subsequent drawings of the promotion.

  • Can I trade the prize for cash? Powerball Power Cruise promotion winners must accept or decline the prize awarded. No cash or exchanges are available. If you win and later are unable to take part in the cruise, there is an option to assign a proxy to sail in your place. The proxy must be assigned within a certain time period prior to the Power Cruise setting sail.

  • What is the drawing schedule? Please see the chart above for the drawing schedule.

  • When will winners be announced and how will they be notified? Winners will be posted upon claiming their prize in the “Winners” section of the NCEL website in Lucke-Rewards. Winners will be notified according to usual Lucke-Rewards procedure. The winners will receive email notification with claim instructions, followed by a phone call and certified letter if necessary. Please be sure your account info — including email, phone number, and address — is updated before entering any Lucke-Rewards drawing. Winners have 30 days from the NCEL’s first attempted contact to claim their prize. If the prize is not claimed within 30 days, it will be forfeited.

  • If I win, what happens after I claim my prize? How do I plan my trip? Once the winners claim their prizes with the NCEL, they will be contacted by Alchemy 3, the NCEL’s partner for the promotion, to begin coordination by June 2017. Alchemy 3 representatives will assist all winners with travel arrangements. Travel arrangements and cruise preparation will be finalized between June and November 2017.

    The prize package includes one (1) night of accommodations at a deluxe hotel in the port city of Tampa for the night prior to cruise departure, five (5) nights aboard the cruise, and a $250 non-refundable credit applied to the winner’s ship account for incidentals.
