Even with the Falcons out of Super Bowl contention, fans still have the opportunity to cash in on football's biggest game of the year.
The Rotary Club of Dawson County's annual Super Bowl Squares contest gives players the chance to win between $500 and $2,000 in raffles that are held at the end of each quarter and then at the end of the game.
There was an abundance of excitement in Dawsonville and Dawson County in 2012.
