Each winner will receive $500 for being selected, plus an additional $500 for every Orioles home run hit during that game. The O’s hit 77 home runs during last year’s shortened season, and 213 throughout the 2019 season.
The first drawing is tomorrow - March 30 - so get your tickets in today! The remaining drawings are April 28, May 26, June 30, July 28 and Aug. 24. Entries are cumulative, so once you enter a ticket, it remains in the mix unless selected as a winner.
Will the opening day magic return this year? From 2016 to 2018, the O’s had three consecutive opening day walk-off wins. Be sure to watch the Orioles all season long on MASN and MASN2 and look for your name!
The new $5 FAST PLAY Home Run Riches game was introduced to coincide with the start of the 2021 Orioles baseball season. The ticket has a progressive jackpot that starts at $40,000 and continues to grow until someone wins, and then starts over at $40,000 again.
