FAIRBANKS, Alaska—The Nenana Ice Classic is now selling tickets for this year’s run of the annual event.
The guessing game is going into its 96th year with the ice on the Tanana River the thinnest it's been in years. But, what that means for breakup is anyone's guess.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says last year, 22 different ticket holders shared a record $338,062 jackpot when the ice went out on May 4 at 4:24 p.m. AST.
Each winning ticket was worth $15,366.45 before taxes.
Tickets for this year's Ice Classic went on sale Wednesday and are available at almost 200 different locations across the state.
