'Tiny Home, Big Wins' Promotion Offers Iowa Lottery Players Chance To Join Small-House Movement

Home Depot® Gift Cards, Custom-Built Tiny Home Are Prizes In Lottery Promotion

CLIVE, Iowa – Iowa Lottery players have a chance to get in on the tiny-home movement in a new promotion that began Wednesday.

"Whether you call it a tiny home, a small house or a not-so-big house, there is no doubt that this trend has taken root all across the country," Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich said. "We've had fun brainstorming ways to give our players a chance to join in, and that led to the debut of this promotion that offers a custom-built tiny home as the grand prize."

A $5 instant-scratch game called "Tiny Home, Big Wins!" began sales Wednesday, the same day that a promotion by the same name started. Tickets in the scratch game feature an image of a tiny home in a woodland setting and offer players the chance to win prizes from $5 up to $50,000.

Players who don't win an instant prize can use nonwinning tickets in the game to enter the promotion from Wednesday through Aug. 29. The promotion will feature seven prize drawings, or about one a month. The first six drawings will each offer 20 prizes of $500 Home Depot® gift cards. The promotion's grand-prize drawing on Aug. 31 will be for a $60,000 gift certificate from Wind River Tiny Homes of Chattanooga, Tenn., for a custom-built tiny home, along with two Home Depot gift cards of $500 for the winner. (State and federal withholding taxes for the grand-prize package also will be paid.)

To enter the promotion, Iowa Lottery players must join or already be members of the lottery's free VIP Club, and can enter tickets via the lottery's website or the Iowa Lottery LotteryPlus app available through iTunes® and Google Play®.

Rules and complete details are available on the lottery website at and drawing results also will be posted there.

Since the lottery's start in 1985, its players have won more than $3.9 billion in prizes while the lottery has raised more than $1.8 billion for the state programs that benefit all Iowans. Today, lottery proceeds in Iowa have three main purposes: They provide support for veterans and their families through the Iowa Veterans Trust Fund; help for a variety of significant projects through the state General Fund; and backing for the Vision Iowa program, which was implemented to create tourism destinations and community attractions in the state and build and repair schools.
