Three New Scratch-Offs for Illinois Lottery Players

Jun 11, 14 Three New Scratch-Offs for Illinois Lottery Players

June 11, 2014 – The Illinois Lottery announced in a press release Tuesday that players in the state had three new games available, offering chances to win as much as $250,000.

The new scratch-offs come at three different price points for players to choose from: for $1 players can enjoy Summer Cash; Queen of Hearts is a new $5 ticket, and the new $250,000 Crossword costs $10.

Summer Cash tickets come in three different colors and offer players a chance to win as much as $2,000.  The game is simple to play: uncover three X’s and win the prize shown, and double the prize if you uncover three sun symbols in a row.

The new $5 game, Queen of Hearts, offers players 15 chances to win on each ticket and features top prizes worth $200,000.  To win, players need to scratch their “cards” and beat the dealer’s hand.  A pair of queens (“Q’s” on the scratch ticket) wins double the prize shown, and a pair of “5x” symbols wins five times the prize shown.

For $10, players can take a chance on $250,000 Crossword which, not surprisingly, offers players a chance to win top prizes worth $250,000.  Each scratch ticket has three different games, and players can even multiply their winnings with a bonus multiplier featured in the top-left of the tickets.

Finally, a fourth game was released the same day as the three tickets detailed in Tuesday’s press release.  Red Ribbon Cash is a $2 game with prizes up to $20,000.  But the best part of this new game may not be the prizes, but where the money goes.

Red Ribbon Cash is this year’s HIV/AIDS benefit scratch-off.  Each year, the Illinois Lottery releases a special scratch-off ticket from which all of the proceeds go towards “an Illinois free of HIV/AIDS.”
