Indiana Introduces Bacon-Scented Lottery Tickets, with the Chance to Win 20 Years of Bacon

A few lucky lottery players stand to win bacon for the next 2 decades

Each year, a winner will receive $250 worth of bacon. 

The Indiana State Lottery has launched a bacon-scented scratch-off ticket that offers not just the sensory experience of bacon, but the chance to win a 20 years’ supply of it.

Bacon-scented tickets have been done elsewhere, but this is the first time a lottery has included bacon in the potential winnings.

Each “Bringin’ Home the Bacon” scratch-off is $2 and includes prizes ranging from $2 to $10,000, but the big prize is the chance to take home two decades worth of bacon, of course. There are no details about whether turkey or beef bacon count, but we’re guessing this lottery belongs to the hog.

If you do win the big breakfast item, you can choose to receive your prize as 20 annual installments of $250 worth of bacon, or as a lump sum payment of $5,000 in cash.


That last part, presumably, is for vegetarians or those who think their interest in bacon may wane over the next 20 years.
