Ga. Lottery Releases Four New Scratch-offs
Jan. 28, 2014 – The Georgia Lottery released four new scratch-off games Tuesday, including one with a new, $30 price tag and incredible prizes to go along with the extra dough players will have to shell out for a chance to win.
The least expensive new game to roll out today is the $1 Pot o’ Gold, a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired game that offers players a chance to see four lucky sevens in a row; the top prize is worth $7,777.
Pot o’ Gold is a simple numbers match game. Matching any number to the “lucky” number and players will win the prize shown below. Each ticket has better than 1 in 4-and-a-half odds of winning.
Lucky Tables is a new $3 scratch-off featuring a classic roulette wheel in the background, and 11 chances to win on the playing area of each ticket.
The overall odds for the Lucky Tables tickets are better than 1 in 4, and the game’s top prize is worth $150,000.
Another ticket inspired by the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day is the $5 Cash Clover game, which is another numbers match game with 20 chances to win on each ticket. Players can win up to $400,000 on the game.
Finally, the new $30 ticket, at the Lottery’s now-highest instant game price, is called $10 Million Cash Spectacular. The game is appropriately named, as the top prize offered is worth $10 million.
The second prize for the new Cash Spectacular scratch-offs is just as, well, spectacular at $1 million. Both the top prize and the second prize are paid in 25-year annuities of $400,000 and $40,000, respectively, though players can choose a lump-sum payment.
And, along with a better than 1-in-3 chance of winning a prize on the new Cash Spectacular scratch-off, players who buy non-winning tickets can enter them into a second-chance drawing for another shot at winning the $10 million prize.
