Krispy Kreme Offers Consolation Prize for Lottery Losers

Krispy Kreme, the renowned doughnut chain based in North Carolina, recently introduced a short-term promotional offer. This unique promotion allows lottery participants who didn't strike it lucky to enjoy glazed doughnuts free of charge, simply by presenting their non-winning lottery ticket. The offer commenced on Tuesday and applies to all types of lottery tickets, whether from the latest Mega Millions draw or any other lottery, that didn't result in a win.

The promotion, available for both in-store and drive-thru customers, extends until the close of business Wednesday, or until stocks last. However, Krispy Kreme clarified in a tweet that the offer cannot be availed through delivery or online orders; lottery players must physically present their tickets to claim their free doughnut.

Ahead of a Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday evening, with a jackpot reaching into the billions, Krispy Kreme made an announcement about giving away free doughnuts.

The company acknowledged the enormous prize at stake, stating, "reminds us that we definitely hit the lottery when it comes to our fans". It added, "So, this week we want them all to win some ‘dough.’" Reflecting on their customer base's loyalty, Krispy Kreme intends to make everyone feel like a winner with their sweet giveaway.

Tuesday evening witnessed the 30th consecutive instance of no one claiming the grand prize in the Mega Millions lottery. Consequently, the jackpot saw an increase of around $200 million, bringing the estimated pre-tax total to $1.25 billion. If the trend continues, it could potentially make the prize the fourth largest in the lottery's history, according to Mega Millions. The jackpot has maintained a level over $1 billion since the end of July.

Mega Millions' record-breaking jackpot was in 2018 when it reached a monumental $1.537 billion.

Should the next drawing produce a winner who opts for the lump-sum cash payment, the pre-tax payout would be a staggering $625.3 million.
