Dick Vitale Encourages Tiger Fans to Text for a Chance to Shoot for $100,000

Jan. 24, 2007

Alltel Wireless, America’s largest network, announced the “My Circle Mania” sweepstakes at its 13 partner universities. At each school, one lucky fan and his or her circle of 10 friends will win a chance to shoot for $100,000 plus Kyocera phones, game tickets and VIP treatment.

Tiger fans enter by texting PAW to 84353 or by logging onto Consumers who enter via text message or online are automatically entered in daily drawings for hundreds of great prizes, including Kyocera phones and accessories, basketballs autographed by college basketball analyst Dick Vitale, Alltel Wireless gift cards as well as the sweepstakes’ grand prize.

The grand prize winner will invite their circle of 10 friends or family members to participate in a “My Circle Mania” shootout at halftime of Alltel’s sponsor day. Each circle member will attempt a shot from a variety of designated areas on the basketball court with each spot representing a unique dollar value ranging from $250 to $1,000. The winner will then attempt a final shot from half-court for a chance to multiply his or her circle’s total winnings by 10 to determine the grand prize payout – up to $100,000.

In addition, based on the winning circle’s performance, Alltel will make a monetary donation in the winner’s name to his or her school’s general scholarship fund.

“My Circle Mania” supports Alltel’s exclusive “My Circle” calling feature, which allows customers the freedom to choose who they call for free – any 10 numbers, any network.
