INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 22, 2024) – The Hoosier Lottery and Indiana Pacers have partnered to provide a myLOTTERY member the chance to win up to $250,000.

As the grand prize winner of the Pacers Courtside VIP Giveaway, Davina Winkler of Franklin will participate in an on-court promotion during halftime of the Jan. 25 game versus the Philadelphia 76ers for the chance to win between $5,000 and $250,000.

“I’ve only ever been to high school sporting events,” Winkler said. “Getting to go to a pro game will be exciting, and having the chance to win money at my first-ever game is crazy!”

Winkler said her husband is looking forward to attending the game with her. His grandfather used to take him to one Pacers game every year, and he remembers those outings with fondness. Now that Winkler and her husband have a one-year-old son, they’re looking forward to carrying on that tradition with him.

Entering the promotion was a benefit of being a myLOTTERY member and required no purchase. As a myLOTTERY member, Winkler entered by simply logging in to her account and clicking the submit button.

As the grand prize winner out of more than 15,000 entries, she also receives a $500 Hoosier Lottery prize pack, a Pacers autographed jersey, a $100 Pacers Team Store gift certificate, a VIP pre-game experience that includes watching warm-ups and Honorary Team Captain recognition on center court.

Nine secondary winners won lower-level tickets to a Pacers game, a parking pass, a VIP pre-game experience, a Hoosier Lottery prize pack and an autographed Pacers jersey.
