Powerball, Heat in partnership

 So the Heat really is a lottery team…

 The Florida Lottery and the Miami Heat announced a partnership Monday that gives Powerball players a chance to fly to a Heat playoff game, win season tickets for next year or rake in other stuff.

  From now through June 5, Powerball players who purchase a ticket of $10 or more will receive a voucher that contains a unique number to be entered at FloridaLottery.com.

The first drawing will be 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 playoff game this year. (Lottery officials are optimistic LeBron and Co. will still be playing in June. Just saying…)
