You can get in the Vikings spirit with the Minnesota Lottery Vikings Big Ticket and 1$t Down scratch games available at 3,000 retailers around the state.

Here are some of the ways fellow fans get in the game:

"We get together in the garage with a crockpot full of treats and TV with surround sound blasting. Everyone is welcome, even if you have a Packers shirt on." - Heidi, Rushford


"I am a lifelong born & raised Minnesota Vikings fan. I love this team, win or lose. I have season tickets and travel to a road game every year. My Vikings story involves going to Dallas in 2019 to watch the Vikings play. The pre-game activities we went to were Texas Live! It was PACKED with so much purple pride I was shocked. I ran into some friends there who had moved to the Dallas area, and they said many locals, including families from Mexico, travel to Dallas to support the Vikings. What a great experience and great game. We Won! SKOL for life!" - Donovan, Bloomington


"I love tailgating before a Vikings home game. Everyone is so pumped up and the SKOL line band comes through and plays. I would love, love to see them in the Super Bowl this year." - Kristina, Mankato


"I am a HUGE fan. I'm at every home game and at least 1 road game a season. I share my love and passion with my family!" - Kayla, Hutchinson


"I go big to support the Vikings in many ways. I tattooed Skol Vikings on my wrists! I paint my face, dye my hair, dress up, and have my own girl’s cave! I am an all-in fan!" - Alyssa, Wyoming


"My best game day supporter is Mama T! Woot woot! It's been awesome being able to spend time watching the game with her! Oh, how I love game-day vibes! The cold brews n sweet bacon-wrapped lil smokies are what keep me coming back. We're all family when it comes to watching the Vikings." - Jamie, Moorhead


"I've been a MN Vikings fan since the mid-60s. I followed in my dad’s footsteps. Every Sunday we would gather in front of the TV. Fast forward 15 years ago when I made a Viking plaque. SKOL!" - Don, Minnesota City


"My mom won tickets to a Vikings game and took me to the game. We stopped for gas on the way to the game and I bought some lottery scratch tickets and I won a nice amount, enough to pay for parking and buy my mom some food at the game. It was a great time and my lottery win was a real morale booster for me. Thanks, mom, thanks MN Lottery too." - Jason, Brooklyn Park
