Missouri Lottery Teams Up To Offer Cardinals, Royals Scratcher Games

The first Missouri Lottery Scratchers tickets featuring Missouri’s Major League Baseball® (MLB) teams will officially go on sale March 28. The two $5 tickets, the "St. Louis Cardinals™" and the "Kansas City Royals™," will give players a chance to win up to $100,000, along with a chance to win unique experiential prizes such as season tickets, luxury box seats, game trips to Chicago, a ceremonial first pitch with game tickets and team merchandise.
"We are extremely excited about these two new games, and we think our players will be equally excited," said Larry Jansen, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. "Missouri is a huge baseball state, and we are fortunate to have two great teams. Offering this ticket now, after the Cardinals™ clinched the 2006 World Series®, makes it even more special."
Both games offer instant cash prizes ranging from $5 to $100,000. In addition to the instant prizes, players can mail in their non-winning tickets to one of two promotions - "Catch the Cardinals™" and "Run with the Royals™." Each promotion will feature three drawings.
The "Catch the Cardinals™" promotion will include:
  • Six sets of two 2008 season tickets (two awarded per drawing);
  • Three stadium party room prize packages for up to 30 people for one 2008 game (one awarded per drawing);
  • Three Cardinals™ vs. Cubs™ road trips for two to Chicago (one awarded per drawing);
  • Three ceremonial first pitch prize packages for two for one 2008 game (one awarded per drawing);
  • Nine hundred officially licensed MLB® Cardinals™ merchandise packages, including jerseys, caps, jackets, wind shirts and leather bags (300 awarded per drawing).
The "Run with the Royals™" promotion will include:
  • Six sets of two 2008 season tickets (two awarded per drawing);
  • Three luxury suite prize packages for up to 12 people for one 2008 game (one awarded per drawing);
  • Three Royals™ vs. White Sox™ road trips for two to Chicago (one awarded per drawing);
  • Three ceremonial first pitch prize packages for two for one 2008 game (one awarded per drawing);
  • Three hundred officially licensed MLB® Royals™ merchandise packages, including jerseys, caps, jackets, wind shirts and leather bags (100 awarded per drawing).
The first entry deadline for both promotions is May 17, and the first drawings will be held May 24. "These promotions offer players a chance for prizes that they wouldn’t be able to buy, like a ceremonial first pitch or a luxury box," said Jansen.
