Colorado Lottery’s in the Holiday Spirit

Nov 06, 14 Colorado Lottery’s in the Holiday Spirit

Nov. 6, 2014 – The Colorado Lottery kicked off the holiday season a bit early this year, launching their four new holiday scratch-off games just before Halloween.

Now that they’ve been on sale for about 10 days, players may start thinking about “Giving scratch,” as the Lottery’s holiday promotion suggests.

Each of the four new games makes a great gift that could turn into as much as $100,000.

Priced at $1, Reindeer Games is an easy-to-play scratch-off that offers players a shot at one of four $5,000 top prizes, one of which has already been claimed.

For $2 players can pick up a Happy Holiday$ ticket.  Each ticket offers players ten chances to win a prize, and the overall odds on the game are 1 in 4.  At the top of the Happy Holiday$ prize scale is a $10,000 win, and there are five of those prizes up for grabs.

The new $3 ticket, Stocking Stuffer, offers players the best odds of winning a prize – 1 in 3.  The game started with three $30,000 top prizes but one has already been claimed, leaving just two to be won.

Finally, the most expensive of the new holiday scratch-offs is the $5 Merry Multiplier.  The game has a top prize of $100,000 and there are just two of those prizes up for grabs.  Overall odds on the game are 1 in 4, and each ticket offers players 20 chances to win.

The best part about the new holiday games is that each one is eligible for it’s own second-chance drawing in the “Giving is Sweet” promotion.

Players who don’t win the first time around can enter their tickets into the special second chance promotion for a chance to win prizes ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, depending on which tickets they enter.

Each of the four holiday games will have it’s own drawing, and the second-chance prizes correspond to the ticket prices: $1 tickets can win a $1,000 second-chance prize, the $2 ticket can be entered for a chance at a $2,000 second chance prize, and so on.

All five second-chance winners will be chosen in one drawing, held Jan. 27, 2015.  The deadline for entry will be noon the day before, Mon., Jan. 26.

To enter, players must log in or register for the Colorado Lottery’s MyLottery players club, then enter the eligible, non-winning holiday tickets into the second chance promotion.  After that, keep your fingers crossed and good luck!
