Seattle Seahawks fans have a chance Wednesday to win one of two trips to Washington, D.C. to see the Seahawks face the Redskins thanks to the state lottery. But if you don't live in the Seattle area, you're out of luck.
The Washington State Lottery is holding a drawing at Westfield Southcenter Mall. The winners will each receive two tickets to the game, airfare and a two night hotel stay.
To enter, fans must purchase two $5 Seattle Seahawks Scratch tickets at the Washington Lottery Scratch Bar kiosk inside the mall between 5:30 and 7 p.m. Wednesday.
The drawing will be held at 7 p.m. You must be present at the drawing to win.
Other prizes being given away include autographed Seahawks jerseys and $300 Seahawks Pro Shop gift certificates.
Not everyone is thrilled about the contest being held in one location, and they re letting the Lottery know it on its Facebook page.
We over here on the eastern side of the state paid for that shiny new stadium too! Why not let us have a chance to win those tickets? wrote Mall Olfson.
little hard to get there if you work in Skagit County. you know some of their best fans live AWAY from Seattle, wrote Christy Morgan.
This is somewhat unfair even for people who live close...what if you work swing shift? wrote Karen Steward.
