Six New Games, New Second Chance from Pa. Lottery
Oct. 30, 2013 – The Pennsylvania Lottery unveiled six new, holiday-themed scratch-off cards Monday and announced the beginning of this year’s $100,000 Jolly Jackpot Second-Chance Drawings.
The new tickets range in price from $1 to $20, and all six are eligible for the $100,000 Jolly Jackpot promotion.
The new $1 scratch-off is called Snow Days, and has 30 $5,000 top prizes players can win. There are about 1 in 4.7 overall odds of winning any of the game’s prizes, which start at a break-even, free ticket prize.
Cashing Through the Snow is the new $2 game, which has 10 top prizes worth $25,000, and features odds of 1 in 4.6.
The new $3 game, Merry Multiplier, has 10 top prizes of $50,000 and the overall odds are just 1 in 4.
For $5, players can get the new Holiday Gifts game, which has odds of 1 in about 4.2 of winning any of the game’s prizes, which range from $5 to $100,000. There are 10 of the $100,000 top prizes.
Sleigh Ride, the Lottery’s new $10 ticket, has $3,000,000 in top prizes, with overall odds of just 1 in 3.23.
At $20, the last of the six new games is called Merry Millionaire, and has five $1,000,000 top prizes available. The game has odds of just 1 in 3.11.
The entry period for the $100,000 Jolly Jackpot second-chance promotion will run through Jan. 2, and the Grand Prize drawing will be held sometime between Jan. 3 and Jan. 8, and will determine one lucky winner for the $100,000 second-chance jackpot.
Entering into the promotion is simple and free. Players just need to register with the Pennsylvania Lottery’s VIP Players club and enter the codes from non-winning holiday scratch-off tickets.
The Lottery will also hold an Early Bird drawing Dec.7, which will award $10,000 prizes to 10 winners. The codes from any of the six holiday tickets must be entered into the drawing by Dec. 2, and tickets entered in time for the Early Bird drawing will still be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing.
Winners of the Early Bird drawing and the Grand Prize winner will be announced during the Pennsylvania Lottery’s televised drawings during the week following the end of each entry period. Visit the Pennsylvania Lottery’s website for more information.
