Nov. 19, 2013 – The New Mexico Lottery today announced the release of a new line of scratch-off games featuring comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham, along with some of his most famous characters.
Dunham told the Las Cruces Sun News that he decided to partner with the New Mexico Lottery because the tickets are “something with social redeeming value,” because the proceeds help fund college scholarships.
“The Legislative Lottery Scholarship is key to helping New Mexico’s students afford college, and I’m honored to be a part of the action,” Dunham said.
The new scratch-offs each cost $5 and offer players a chance to win up to $50,000. The overall odds for the game are better than 1 in 4. Players can view a complete prize list with odds, and check out the ticket design on the New Mexico Lottery’s Scratchers webpage.
Along with the new game, the Lottery announced a special second-chance promotion specifically for the Jeff Dunham tickets.
The entry period opened along with the tickets’ release today, and will remain open until Feb. 13. The drawing for the second-chance prizes will be held Feb. 18.
Three lucky winners and their guests will all receive tickets to Dunham’s “Disorderly Conduct Tour” performance March 15 in Rio Rancho, N.M.
One top prize winner and a guest of their choosing will win themselves a meet-and-greet opportunity with Dunham, and the top prize and second prize both include premium seating and an autographed animatronic doll.
Players can find more information on prizes and contest rules on the New Mexico Lottery’s promotions page.
