The director of the Ohio Lottery Commission, Pat McDonald, has been telling residents how to enter the statewide Vax-a-Million contest. On Monday, he explained how residents can register in order to be eligible for one of five $1 million cash prizes.
McDonald went on to explain the prize may also be even bigger than previously stated with participating children from ages 12-to-17 eligible for a full four-year ride to any Ohio college or university. The contest was announced last week with the Ohio Lottery Commission and Governor’s Office working in tandem to find five lucky winners.
“We’re thrilled to assist the governor and the Department of Health in this exciting effort to motivate Ohioans to get vaccinated,” McDonald stated. “With this Vax-a-Million drawing, your odds are great, too. Every vaccinated Ohioan is eligible by simply entering on our website.”
