Calgary – The 2016 Stampede Lotteries Ticket Campaign kicks off on Wednesday, April 27, providing Albertans with an opportunity to “Strike it Lucky!”

This year, the Stampede Lotteries prizes are bigger and better, with more than $1.4 million in prizes, including the grand prize of a $924,975 Rotary Dream Home built by Homes by Avi. The 1,883 sq. ft. house will be available to visit on Stampede Park throughout the 10 days of Stampede before it moves to a corner lot in the master-planned lake and golf community of Harmony in Springbank. The Kinsmen prize packages include a GMC Sierra Denali, GMC Canyon SLT, GMC Sierra 3500HD SLE, and a GMC Sierra 1500 SLE — all 4x4 crew cabs. Other prizes include a 40-ft fifth-wheel trailer, 21-ft boat, a quad and dirt bikes. All ticket package purchases made before the 11 p.m., Friday, June 10 Early Bird deadline will qualify to win a brand new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe!

For 2016, we have brought back all the same ticket packages and price points that helped us achieve a sellout last year. Also, SPLIT’EM 50 lottery has been supersized to offer a maximum jackpot of $2,000,000 and a minimum payout of at least $400,000. These 50/50 draw tickets start at just $10 and are on sale now, alongside our ticket packages, and will be available on Stampede Park.

Every ticket package includes valuable bonuses and savings for the Calgary Stampede. The best value is the Triple Horseshoe Package; at $130, it offers 75 chances to win, three gate passes to the Stampede (worth $54) and a 50 per cent discount on up to 12 Rodeo or Evening Show tickets (up to $600 in savings).

Stampede Lotteries raises funds for Calgary Stampede, a not-for profit organization, and our youth and agricultural programs. The lotteries also raise funds for worthwhile community projects in southern Alberta through the Stampede’s two service partners: Kinsmen Club of Calgary and Rotary Club of Calgary South.

Lottery ticket sales in 2015 contributed $1.172 million to over 50 charities in the Calgary community.

“Knowing that our lottery proceeds are shared among many local charities and benefit thousands of people, we take great care in producing a lottery program that can help our community,” says Lynn Grant, chair of the Calgary Stampede Lotteries committee. “We achieve this success with the help of our partners, Kinsmen Club of Calgary, Rotary Club of South Calgary and the Calgary Marching Showband.”

Ticket packages are only available until 11 p.m. on June 24 or until sold out (quantities are limited).
