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.

Raffle tickets, or Super Bowl squares, can be purchased for $100 each with players choosing the square they believe the ball will be on when the quarter ends.

The first, second and third quarter payouts are $500 each. The final score at the end of the fourth quarter is $2,000.

"This is really a lot of fun," said Rotarian Scott Yochum. "This is going to be a great game."

The AFC Champion Baltimore Ravens are up against five-time Super Bowl winners the San Francisco 49ers.

The Ravens advanced to the Super Bowl after a 28-13 win over the New England Patriots, while the 49ers rallied for a 28-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons for the NFC championship.

The game will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans with kickoff at 6:30 p.m. Super Bowl XLVII will be aired on CBS.

To purchase Super Bowl Squares, contact any Rotarian or call (404) 307-4574. Proceeds from the sales will benefit Rotary's various service initiatives.
