Weekly payouts, increasing grand prize highlight opportunities to win money while supporting Fiesta Bowl Charities
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – The Fiesta Bowl has launched its first ever progressive raffle, a version of the popular game, Queen of Hearts, titled “Her Hidden Highness presented by Arizona Lottery.” This progressive raffle increases the jackpot every week until the winning card is selected, when 50 percent of the pot goes to the winner and the balance benefits Fiesta Bowl Charities. There are also weekly winners who receive cash prizes.
Her Hidden Highness presented by Arizona Lottery brings something unique to the state of Arizona, as the Fiesta Bowl Organization is the first sports property in the state to host this winning opportunity. Raffle tickets sales are now open to all Arizona residents, with the first weekly drawing taking place on Sunday, August 30, and drawings every subsequent Sunday.
“We’re thrilled to bring this new progressive raffle to our Arizona community and give our residents the opportunity to win some extra money, while also helping those in our community who need it, especially right now,” said Fiesta Bowl Executive Director Mike Nealy. “Other similar-type progressive raffles have delivered jackpots with multiple-million dollars, in addition to the weekly payouts that winners will enjoy.”
The process for fans to try their luck while supporting the Arizona community is simple:
