One way the show attempts to generate excitement is by giving away a fantastic Grand Prize.  You become eligible by simply purchasing an
 admission ticket.  Of course you can buy multiple tickets if you want to increase your chances. Grand prizes are worth hundreds of dollars.  Some past grand prizes:  treasure chest of various specimens, paleomastodon molar, quartz crystal cluster, fossil turtle shell, amethyst cathedral, fossil sharks teeth- cast and real, mineral collection, silver coin from the Atocha, meteorite, collection of gems and jewelry, dinosaur egg and Peruvian quartz crystal with galena and pyrite.  The good thing is you do not have to be present to win the prize, but we try to get in touch with you at the close of the show so you can claim it promptly.

Door prizes are smaller items, usually donated by our dealers.  They are typically mineral, fossil or jewelry specimens that make great additions to any collection.  We have the best dealers in the country, so the prizes are always "top shelf".  Door prizes numbers are usually pulled on the hour.  To determine if you have won compare the last four numbers on your wristband to the posted list of numbers pulled before you leave.
