Caribbean Cash Ticket Offers a Chance to Instantly Win $30,000 or One of 136 Tropical Vacations

COLUMBIA, S.C. – With the arrival of summer, the South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) has added a midday drawing for Pick 3 and Pick 4 and a hot new game that offers players a chance to instantly win $30,000 or a vacation package to a tropical destination.

Caribbean-themed events held at various retailer and mall locations across the state today helped kick off SCEL’s newest game, Caribbean Cash, as well as the new drawing for Pick 3 and Pick 4. Drawings for Pick 3 and Pick 4 will now take place at 1:00 and 6:59 p.m. everyday except Sunday.

The SCEL is the first lottery to offer Caribbean Cash, an instant ticket that offers players a chance to win $30,000 or one of 136 Super-Inclusive® island vacation packages to their choice of the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Curacao or Jamaica. Each vacation prize package winner will receive deluxe accommodations for two consisting of six day/five nights at a Super-Inclusive® resort, coach airfare and ground transfers to and from the designated airport. The prize package also includes all room taxes, airline fees and taxes and round-trip coach airfare for two from Greenville, Charleston or Columbia. All trips must be taken before June 30, 2005.

In addition, Caribbean Cash offers players a chance to be entered in second-chance drawings. If a player finds the word “entry” in the bonus play area of the ticket, he or she could win one of 25 additional Super-Inclusive® vacation packages for two. SCEL will hold several second-chance drawings throughout the summer. The draw dates and the deadline to enter the second-chance drawings are as follows:

Deadline to enter Draw dates
1st July 15 at 5:00 p.m. July 22
2nd August 5 at 5:00 p.m. August 12
3rd August 19 at 5:00 p.m. August 26
4th September 2 at 5:00 p.m. September 9
5th September 16 at 5:00 p.m. September 23

Players who find the word “Entry” in the bonus play area should fill in and sign the back of the qualified Caribbean Cash instant ticket. Each ticket is pre-addressed so that players must only place a stamp on the ticket and drop it in the mail. Tickets must be received seven days prior to each drawing and are valid for one drawing only. Entries received after the deadline date will be eligible for the subsequent drawing. The SCEL will draw five winners for vacation packages on each draw date.

The SCEL is partnering with radio stations in each market to give away a Super-Inclusive® vacation package to a Caribbean destination. The stations will qualify listeners through July 6 and the vacation package will be awarded on July 9. Additionally, the SCEL will host Caribbean Cash parties at various retailer locations across the state throughout the summer from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend and the dates and locations are as follows:
