S3-MDF3556 S4-MDF4540 S4-MDF4663 S5-MDF5501 S6-MDF6474 Fishers are reminded to register for each new season of Million Dollar Fish even if they registered in previous seasons. To register for free or find out more, head to www.milliondollarfish.com.au (http://www.milliondollarfish.com.au). Quotes from Minister for Major Events Natasha Fyles: Million Dollar Fish is a major economic drawcard for the Northern Territory and reeled in $41.41 million of stimulus to the Territory economy, including $12 million of new money over the 2020-2021 Financial Year. Territory experts are saying conditions look promising over the next few months, and thousands of local and interstate anglers are expected to drop a line in the Territory for the chance to reel in the Million Dollar Fish. Fishers who dont own private boats are encouraged to consider booking a fishing expedition with a professional local business or stay at at one of our unique Territory fishing lodges. Land-based fishers were among those to reel in a cash prize last year proving you dont need a boat to succeed in Million Dollar Fish. Quotes from SportsBet External Affairs Manager Brad Fanning: Registering for Million Dollar Fish is quick, easy and free aside from having the chance to become a millionaire, youll also go into the draw to win great prizes each month as part of the Lucky Prize Pool. Were absolutely thrilled to have over $61,000 worth of incredible prizes this season, which have been supplied by the competitions partners. With prize-tagged fish released right across the Territory from the Tiwi Islands, Arnhem Land and Darwin to Kakadu and Katherine, the chances of turning your catch into cash have never been better. Theres more $1 million tagged fish out there than ever before, so get out there and wet a line across the Top End come 1 October. Who knows, one cast could change your life! http://www.milliondollarfish.com.au/
