Atlas Experiences and The Florida Lottery Collaborate to Create Winning Moments for Florida Lottery Players in Hawaii 2022

Marietta, GA. August 26, 2021 – Atlas Experiences, LLC (“Atlas”) and the Florida Lottery have partnered together to create a “money can’t buy” experience on the Big Island of Hawaii in September 2022.

Atlas will be crafting a completely unique program for Florida Lottery players to experience the beautiful island of Hawaii. In an exclusive partnership, Atlas and The Famous Group will showcase elevated experiences of winning moments through the Lucky Pik digital, 3D animated game show. The show will be produced live at the Fairmont Orchid where 50 Florida Lottery winners will play to win cash prizes ranging from $250 to $10,000. The latest technology will reveal prizes that create sharable moments, which will be spotlighted on social media. This show will create an unforgettable level of excitement at the final night Taste of the Islands dinner.

“The Florida Lottery had such an amazing year; we are excited to support their mission to enhance education in Florida by offering exciting games with incredible prizes for their players.” said Derek Gwaltney, Founder & CEO of Atlas Experiences. “Creating an amazing Bonus Play prize program that incorporates Hawaii, a bucket list destination, and the opportunity to play Lucky Pik for a chance to win part of $50,000 in cash prizes - will absolutely create memorable moments that players will remember for years to come.”

Experiences and innovations continue to evolve at a rapid pace and Atlas’s desire to continue to innovate their events and programs sets the bar higher every time. In addition, The Famous Group continues to rethink fan experiences for sport events and fan engagement strategies for organizations across the country.

 “What an amazing opportunity to work with the Florida Lottery and Atlas to award

$50,000 through the digital game show Lucky Pik. Together we will produce excitement with a fully customizable game show experience.” Said Jon Slusser, Partner & Owner of The Famous Group.

 The Fairmont Orchid sits on 32 oceanfront acres of lush tropical gardens, cascading waterfalls, and tranquil beaches. This resort will host the Atlas Experiences team and Florida Lottery winners, ensuring that they feel the spirit of Aloha from the time they arrive to the time they return home from paradise.

 “We look forward to working with Atlas Experiences as we welcome Florida Lottery winners and their guests to our luxury island oasis, tucked away along Hawaii Island’s pristine Kohala Coast. We hope all guests find rest and relaxation as they snorkel in our private bay, indulge in a restorative massage at our award-winning spa, and savor the most tantalizing flavors the islands have to offer at our signature restaurants. We encourage all to explore Hawaii’s largest—and arguably most authentic—island. You can see for yourself the ancient volcanos, black sand beaches and hidden waterfalls that make Hawaii so special. The island’s coastal wonders await… and we cannot wait to welcome Atlas for this event and many more in the future! Mahalo.”

Charles Head General Manager, Fairmont Orchid.
