New Instant Game Has Highest Payout, 10 $1 Million Prizes
Your life could completely change in an instant with the Missouri Lottery’s newest Scratchers game, "$100 Million Cash Spectacular." The new game, which officially goes on sale Sept. 10, has the highest payout in the Lottery’s history and offers 10 top prizes of $1 million.
"We think this game will be the best-selling $10 game ever," said Bill Burton, instant game product manager for the Missouri Lottery. "Other states have introduced these ’mega’ games, and they have been very successful. We think it will be a big hit in Missouri, too."
More than 75.14 percent of the $10 game’s sales will be returned to players as prizes.
"There are more than $102.5 million in cash prizes in this game alone," Burton said. "It’s the first Scratchers game to offer so many top prizes of $1 million."
Burton noted that not only are there a large number of top prizes, but there is also a record number of mid-range prizes.
"There are 180,000 prizes between $100 and $500," Burton noted. "The game has more than 4,800 prizes that range from $1,000 to $20,000. Players should be excited about the number of winning experiences they will have with this game."
