Kings Draft Lottery Promotion Offers Unprecedented Savings on 2012-13 Season Tickets

-- Fans will save up to 50% on select season ticket locations should Kings draw picks 1-3 and earn a 35% discount if team chooses 5-8 in upcoming Draft Lottery on May 30 --

SACRAMENTO, CALIF., May 14, 2012 -- The Sacramento Kings announced today its first-ever NBA Draft Lottery promotion designed to save fans as much as 50 percent off 2012-13 season tickets.

Should the Kings draw one of the coveted top-3 positions in this year’s NBA Draft, season tickets in designated lower and upper level locations will be offered at 50 percent off their original prices, currently $75 and $36.50 each respectively. If the team nets a pick in the 5-8 range, fans will earn a 35 percent discount.

In either scenario, these discounts represent the cheapest price for a lower level season ticket in Kings history at less than $50 per seat ($37.50 if team nabs a top-3 pick and $48.75 given a 5-8 selection). Pricing for certain upper level locations will also be drastically reduced in both outcomes ($18.25 or $23.75 each).

According to mathematical probabilities, the Kings have a 7.6 percent chance of drawing the No. 1 overall selection, a 25.3 percent likelihood of moving into the top-3 and are currently slotted fifth based on last season’s standings* (Sacramento won a coin-flip tiebreaker with New Jersey after both teams finished with identical records).

Fans can take advantage of this offer by placing a $100 per seat non-refundable deposit, to be credited towards their season ticket purchase following lottery results and seat selection process. Convenient payment plans are available and all fans who place deposits in association with the promotion will receive an invitation to the official Kings Lottery party hosted at Firestone Public House, where one lucky winner will receive a trip for two to the Las Vegas Summer League.

The offer will expire at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 30 prior to the start of the NBA Lottery held in New York City.

Season ticket inventory allotted for this offer is expected to sell quickly, so fans are encouraged to visit kings.com/lottery or call 888-91-KINGS today to speak with a sales representative.
