$75,000 in cash available to cricket fans at TOWER Super Challenge II
The Australian Cricket Board (ACB) today released details of the TOWER Ton, a promotion that provides cricket fans attending TOWER Super Challenge II with the chance to share in $75,000 cash.
A $25,000 prize will be up for grabs at all three matches of the series, if either of the following events occur:
- If a bowler from either team delivers a legal ball at, or exceeding100mph (160.9km) or;
- If any batsman scores 100 runs from 100 deliveries or less.
The TOWER Ton will work in the following manner:
- At the second drinks break of the first innings, 10 seat numbers selected randomly by a computer, will be displayed on the replay screen.
- The 10 patrons will be invited onto the field during the innings break, where another draw will take place to select one contestant eligible to win the jackpot.
- Ten cricket balls will be placed in separate boxes on a table in the middle of the ground. Each patron will be asked to select a box.
- Nine boxes will contain Kanga cricket balls. One box will contain a white cricket ball. The patron who selects the box containing the white cricket ball will be eligible to win the $25,000 prize.
- If the prizemoney is activated in the first innings, the $25,000 cheque will be presented during the innings break.
- If the prizemoney is activated in the second innings, the $25,000 cheque will be presented at the end of the match.
- The prizemoney will only be available once during a match.
- The $25,000 prize is available for all three matches, but will not double, or indeed triple if the money isn't awarded in matches one, two or three.
- The speed gun, supplied by industry experts IDS Sports is consistent with the speed measurement displayed on Channel Nine's television coverage.
- The prizemoney for the TOWER Ton has been made available by the series' principal sponsor, TOWER.
