Lottery President. & CEO Rebecca Hargrove congratulates Lottery Jeep winner!

MT. JULIET—Jake Haight of Old Hickory is ready to hit the road this summer after winning a 2018 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4x4 from the Tennessee Education Lottery.

“I’m so excited, you have no idea,” said Jake, a carpenter whose primary vehicle is—was—a work truck. “I think I’ll visit family in Pennsylvania,” he said. Jake picked up the Jeep® today at Rockie Williams’ Premier Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Mt. Juliet.

Jake won the prize, valued at $60,328 including taxes paid by the Lottery, by entering eligible tickets into the Lottery’s online “VIP Players Suite.” Once a ticket is entered, VIP Suite members earn VIP Rewards Points they can use to enter drawings for incredible merchandise and/or travel/experience packages. The Lottery awarded a Stingray 225CR boat to a Cunningham player in February and 2017 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium Convertible to a Gallatin winner last summer as part of the same program.

“Offering a variety of prizes is just another way we can attract players, who in turn help support the programs funded by Tennessee Lottery dollars,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO, who was on hand to present the keys to Jake.
