Florida Lottery Unveils Holiday Scratch-offs

Oct. 29, 2013 – The Florida Lottery is getting in the holiday spirit, and today launched five new holiday-themed scratch off games, with a sixth game upcoming.

The Lottery today launched the $1 Holiday Delight, two $2 tickets – Ho Ho Ho Lotta Cash and Season’s Gold, a $5 game called Holiday Gift, and the $10 $1,000,000 Season’s Greetings game.

The sixth game, which the Lottery says will be released Dec. 3, is another $2 ticket.  Chocolate Covered 7s, the sixth game, will not only offer players a chance at cash prizes, but will also feature a whiff of the holidays – the Lottery says it will be  a “scented” ticket.

Overall, the new games feature more than $100 million in cash prizes, according to Florida Lottery press releases.

Holiday Delight, the new $1 game, offers a top prize of $5,000, with odds better than 1 in 5.

The two new $2 games, Ho Ho Ho Lotta Cash and Season’s Delight both feature top prizes of $25,000, and each game has odds of about 1 in 4.

The new $5 ticket, Holiday Gift, has six top prizes worth $250,000.  The Lottery says there are 1.4 million winning tickets in circulation, and the odds of winning one of the game’s prizes are 1 in 4.05.

$1,000,000 Season’s Greetings, the new $10 ticket, is offering more than $30 million in cash prizes according to the Lottery’s press release.  The top prize, as the game’s name suggests, is $1 million, and the overall odds on the game are 1 in 3.4.

The Florida Lottery said in press releases that its retailers would be providing players with gift-wrapped tickets for purchases over $5.  The “specially-designed holiday gift envelopes” will make it easy to give the new holiday tickets as gifts this holiday season.
