Sept. 12, 2013 -The Iowa Lottery yesterday issued a correction to the prize structure of its Jumble scratch-off game, which was retailers began selling July 8 of this year.
According to the Iowa Lottery blog, the game incorrectly listed the number of prizes available, but the Iowa Lottery has corrected the mistake on IaLottery.com.
The website now reflects the correct prize structure:
There were 13 total top prizes available, each worth $30,000. Four of those prizes have already been claimed, and nine remain.
A total of 100 second-tier prizes were offered when the game first launched, 23 of which have already been claimed by Jumble players. That leaves 77 second-tier prizes yet to be claimed, each worth $1,000.
The third-tier prizes offered on Jumble are worth $100, and there are 1,535 still waiting to be claimed. When Jumble first launched, there were 1,993 of these $100 prizes available, meaning that 458 people have won $100 prizes playing Jumble.
There are thousands of prizes yet to be claimed, worth anywhere from $3 to $50. The Iowa Lottery reminds its players that they haven’t taken any prizes away from the game. Only a certain number of winning scratch-offs are printed for any game, and the number of winners printed supports the overall odds of the game.
In the case of Jumble, the odds of the game have not changed – they are still 1 in 3.64. There are still plenty of prizes available at every level, so head out and grab a Jumble card before all those $30,000 prizes disappear.
