And, it’s D.C. for the Win!
High-five to everyone who huddled up with us for Tailgate Thursdays. We kicked-off this winning promotion in September 2012 with star players including Redskins alumni, team cheerleaders, local food trucks and restaurants—and you, our Most Valuable Players! Yard for yard, we gave away Redskins game tickets, RGIII t-shirts and team merchandise, D.C. Scratchers with the potential for great cash prizes, free lunch, and more. Now, our final play of the game is to congratulate our big winners:
Nitya Gulati of Ashburn, VA
Our $15,000 Shopping Spree winner was the lucky pick of over 1,600 entries. In true Very Important Player style, she arrived at Best Buy courtesy of limousine service provided by the D.C. Lottery. She was greeted by a merry flock of D.C. Lottery and Best Buy personnel. And, was assigned her personal Geek Squad elf to assist her shopping experience. “I’ve got a map of the store in my head. I’m headed for the appliances, then TVs, movies,” says Gulati who plans to remodel her kitchen and finish her Christmas list with her shopping spree.

These prizes went to two sisters who soon became part of the Tailgate Thursday family. Each won D.C. Lottery prize packs and 10 tickets to the Dallas vs. Washington matchup. Says Bertina, “My sister and I are very excited. Tailgate Thursday was fun! I met Dexter Manley and won $200 on a D.C. Scratcher, and now this!”
Bob Faber of Clarksville, MD
Bob won a D.C. Lottery prize pack and two VIP tickets to the Dec 30 game to see the classic rivalry of the Dallas vs. Washington at FedEx Field. Excited about his win, Bob says, “When I saw it was the D.C. Lottery on the phone, I knew it was a good call!”
