In 2019, Accel Entertainment hosted the Million Dollar Giveaway in partnership with our participating locations. Over the course of the year, we gave away almost a half-million dollars in prize money to over 100 lucky winners! With 978 locations participating and over 42,000 players entered, by December 2019 there were over 1.4 million entries made! Some of our biggest prize packages had people winning $40,000, $50,000, and $100,000!

Every month, AE gave out a number of Golden Tickets to random lucky winners who entered in the Million Dollar Giveaway. These winners had the chance to attend Accel Entertainment's Million Dollar Giveaway Grand Prize Event held in early 2020. Everyone who attended won a cash prize, and one lucky Grand Prize winner won $100,000!
