Buy-one, get-one scratch-off giveaway at Heat game

  If watching the Miami Heat play in Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinals isn't enough, there's this from the Florida Lottery: Fans will receive a buy-one, get-one coupon for scratch-off tickets Monday -- and possibly a lot more.

 During the first quarter break, Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell will announce the AmericanAirlines Arena row that will receive a "White Hot Heat Fan Kit," which includes $100 worth of the $5 The Price is Right Scratch-off tickets and Heat merchandise.

 The promotion is being offered in conjunction with the Powerball playoff promotion, which launched April 22 and runs through June 5. During that promotion, players who purchase a Powerball ticket of $10 or more will receive a voucher that contains a unique number to be entered on the Florida Lottery’s website for a chance to win Miami Heat prizes.

 Two drawings will be held, the first on May 17 and the second on June 7, from vouchers submitted during the entry period for each drawing. One Grand Prize winner in each drawing will receive a flyaway trip for two to a 2013 Miami HEAT road playoff game.

  Other prizes include season tickets for two for the 2013-14 Miami HEAT season, an opportunity to play a full-court basketball game with nine friends at AmericanAirlines Arena (Court of Dreams), regular season home game tickets for the 2013-14 season with player meet and greets, the opportunity to attend a Heat basketball clinic and autographed merchandise. Additional information about the promotion is available on the Florida Lottery website, FloridaLottery.com.
