Fas Mart®’s Parent Company Launches Million-Dollar Scratch Card Game
in Nine States, including Virginia
In-store scratcher cards, and one online entry hold chance to win $1 million;
Local nonprofit also has chance to receive $20,000 donation
RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 15, 2014 – Area Fas Mart® stores are launching a promotion on January 15, 2014 that could make one lucky shopper and one online contestant each $1 million richer.
Richmond nonprofits HomeAgain and Caritas were nominated by employees of Fas Mart convenience stores to vie for a chance to win $20,000. In short, HomeAgain and Caritas are among about 15 nonprofits in the markets served by Fas Mart’s parent GPM Investments that could win the $20,000 by accumulating the most votes online at www.WIN1MM.com.
Fas Mart®’s Million-Dollar Scratch Card Game has two parts:
- An in-store component where customers purchase a specified product, such as a candy bar or soda, to receive a scratcher card and can instantly win cash prizes by scratching off the right boxes; and,
- A second chance to win $1 million – by submitting a code from the bottom of the scratcher card to www.WIN1MM.com. Every game piece has the potential to be a winning card for various cash prizes ($1, $2, $5, $10, $50 and one $1 million card) in a game that includes $5 million in potential prizes.
Fas Mart® has about 20 stores in the Metro Richmond area so there are plenty of locations to visit!
Customers also will be encouraged to vote for their favorite charity among a list, which initially includes about 15 nonprofits nominated by employees in markets served by Fas Mart® parent company GPM Investments, LLC. The nonprofit organization with the most votes will receive a $20,000 donation from GPM – there is no purchase necessary, and anyone can vote for their favorite nonprofit.
“Fas Mart® is all about speed and convenience, helping busy consumers get what they need so that they can get on with their day,” said Bill Reilly, senior vice president, marketing for Fas Mart®. “We’ve designed this promotion for shoppers in a hurry – scratch and go.”
Reilly also emphasized the online component of the promotion. “We’re urging people to play online for another chance to win as well as to vote to make a significant impact on a worthwhile nonprofit.”
