Don’t Miss Hoosier Lottery Day at the Indiana State Fair. It’s historically the biggest day at the fair in terms of attendance. Today from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. fairgoers ages 18 and older are invited to visit Lotto Town under the Hoosier Lottery grandstand to receive a free $1 Summer Fun scratch-off ticket.
Last year more than 23,000 fairgoers claimed their free tickets. Lottery officials are expecting an even bigger crowd this year. Attendees will get a flier at the gate when they come into the fairgrounds. They will need to bring it to Lotto Town to collect their free ticket. There’s a limit of one per person while supplies last.
Hoosier Lottery distributions benefit every county throughout Indiana. The Hoosier Lottery contributes $30 million to local police and firefighters’ pensions and $30 million to the Teachers’ Retirement Fund. In fiscal year 2013, the Hoosier Lottery contributed $164.5 million to the Build Indiana Fund.
