COLUMBIA, SC (October 24, 2007) – If a relaxing vacation cruising the Caribbean sounds like the perfect getaway, don’t miss your chance to hop on board!

The South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) has embarked on the Cruise Away with Palmetto Cash 5 Promotion to celebrate Palmetto Cash 5 drawings being available five nights a week, Monday through Friday at 6:59 p.m.

For the next few weeks, each combined purchase of $5 in Palmetto Cash 5 with $5 in Power-Up (for a $10 total purchase) will generate one Cruise Away with Palmetto Cash 5 entry form. To enter the drawing for the cruises, players must mail the entry form to the address indicated. All entries must be received by Friday, November 9, 2007, for the Thursday, November 15, 2007, grand prize drawing.

Two names will be drawn on Thursday, November 15, at the AAA Vacations Columbia office located at 130 Forum Drive. Two lucky grand prize winners will receive a Carnival Cruise Lines® voucher from AAA Vacations for a cruise for two, valued at approximately $1,400. The grand prize winners will set sail aboard a luxury Carnival Cruise Lines® ship.

AAA Vacations is headquartered in Charlotte, NC, and operates 10 offices in South Carolina. As the largest leisure travel agency in the United States, AAA Vacations is a preferred partner of Carnival Cruise Lines®.

SCEL is hosting a series of live radio remotes to showcase the Cruise Away with Palmetto Cash 5 Promotion. The remotes began last month and are continuing at selected AAA Vacations offices around the state through November 8. During the radio remotes players are encouraged to bring five non-winning instant tickets by the designated AAA Vacations offices to spin the prize wheel loaded with exciting promotional items!

Since its inception in 2002, the South Carolina Education Lottery has launched more than 220 instant games and five online games. Currently, SCEL offers approximately 30 instant games and four online games at more than 3,500 lottery retailers statewide. Traditionally, SCEL produces an average of four new games each month in a variety of themes, play styles, and price points of $1 - $10. During the past five years, the support the South Carolina Education Lottery has received from players and retailers is responsible for the General Assembly appropriating more than $1.74 billion for educational purposes through fiscal year 2008.
