The sweepstakes, open to California residents, launched in December and ran until the end of January. Once registered, Mercury also gave fans the opportunity to get two free tickets to an upcoming Kings game simply for completing an online quote.  

"Thank you to Mercury Insurance and the LA Kings for making this experience possible. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity," Said Vallow.
