Sept. 4, 2013 – The D.C. Lottery has two new games in its Fast Play family: High Roller and Touchdown Dollars. Fast play is a twist on classic instant games, and can be played at a Lottery retailer terminal, or on a printed ticket.
Touchdown Dollars is “the fastest way to win $25,000,” according to the D.C. Lottery’s website. To win, players must move the up at least 50 yards on the “field” printed on the ticket.
How? Well, each ticket costs $5, and gives you a “field” divided into four sections – A, B, C, and D. Beneath the field will be printed eight letter-number combinations called “Your Gains”.
The “Your Gains” combos tell you which ball to move – with the letters A, B, C, or D – and how far to move it – with numbers 0 through 3. You won’t be moving up the field a yard or two at a time, though. Each number corresponds to 10 yards, so 3A would mean your ball in the A column would move up 30 yards – only 20 more yards until you win!
You can find all the rules for Touchdown Dollars, as well as the odds and prize structure, on the Touchdown Dollars webpage, here.
The other new Fast Play game from the D.C. lottery is called High Roller, and offers players a shot at $50,000, with a total of 12 ways to win on each ticket.
High Roller combines four games – Roulette, Dice, “Jacks or Better”, and the “Lucky Chips Bonus” – on one $10 ticket. That’s a great deal for four different games, but the D.C. Lottery decided it could be better, and made every ticket a winner.
That’s right – the odds of the High Roller game are 1 to 1, you’ll never leave (completely) empty handed.
Here’s how to play:
In Roulette, you’ll see “Your Bets” printed at the top of your ticket, and you’ll win if they match any of the three slivers of a roulette wheel shown underneath, called “Spins.”
The Dice game gives you three “rolls” with five dice. If you match any three dice in one roll, you win the prize printed at the end of the row.
“Jacks or Better” is aptly named, as all you need to do to win is have a pair of Jacks – or better – in your poker hand. On your ticket you’ll see three five-card poker hands printed, and if you match any of those to the “Prize Legend” detailing winning hands below, you’ll win the prize shown.
The fourth and final game on High Roller is simple. The Lucky Chips Bonus prints two coins on the bottom of your ticket, and if they show the same prize amount, you win that much!
You can’t beat 1-to-1 odds on any Lottery game, or in the casino, so get to a D.C. Lottery retailer to play High Roller before they change their minds!
