East Rutherford, NJ - Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is giving one lucky harness racing fan a chance to win $1,000,000 in their first ever Million Dollar Ball Drop. Guests can sign up every live racing night May 2 - July 11, with the Ball Drop taking place on Friday, July 25th. Each guest is allowed one entry per person, per live race day. After the close of entries, 500 names will be randomly selected and assigned a numbered golf ball.
During live racing on July 25, 500 numbered golf balls will be dropped from the top of a fire truck ladder onto a target area in the infield of the racetrack. If the golf ball closest to the target hole matches the pre-selected number in the sealed envelope, that guest wins $1,000,000.
However, if the ball dropped closest to the target area does not match the pre-selected number, the guest still wins a 1st Place Prize of $5,000.00.*
Prizes will also be awarded for the next 24 closest golf balls to the target hole as follows:
2nd Place: $3,000.00
3rd Place: $1,500.00
4th Place: $1,000.00
5th Place: $500.00
6th- 15th Place: $100.00
16th-25th Place: $50.00
