FRIDLEY, Minn., Nov. 19 -- The exciting Magic Match Game, implemented in July, came to a close on November 18 when the winner was notified.

With over 469,000 prizes available, customers had the opportunity to win cash prizes totaling over $8,000 and free products valued at $130,000. In conjunction with other product sponsors, Freedom Valu Centers offered almost half a million different instant win prizes, making this one of the largest customer promotions in Freedom's history. Recipients received anything from a free cup of coffee or pop, to cash, to the grand prize of the Harley Davidson 883 Sportster. The Magic Match Game revealed winners from as far away as California and Montana. Customers were given a free scratch game each time they visited one of the 60 Freedom Valu Center stores. Approximately 4.5 million tickets were distributed throughout the four state area, which included Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and South Dakota. Any non-winning tickets were eligible in a second-chance drawing for the 883 Harley Davidson Motorcycle.
