If you’re headed to Mosaic Monday, you could be walking out with a lot more money than you started out with.
The game between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Edmonton Eskimos will see the pot for the 50/50 draw start out at $100,000, which is due to numerous prizes going unclaimed.
Riders Marketing Director Miriam Johnson said staff will be also out selling tickets for the big pot starting early.
“We’re starting selling them at Party In The Park prior to the game and surrounding the stadium,” she said. “Once those gates open, we really try to up how many locations are available to purchase those 50/50 tickets.”
The Riders are no stranger to big pots.
“The inaugural season kick off game, there was an unclaimed prize back from July 1st of 2017,” she said. “So, they rolled one over from historic Mosaic into that inaugural season and I think that jackpot was upwards of high $300,000’s.”
