Lottery Game Will Make 20 Instant Millionaires
You know it’s a big game when the second prize is $1 million! The Missouri Lottery’s first $20 Scratchers game, "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza," offers four top prizes of $4 million and 16 $1 million prizes. The game offers the highest payout in Missouri Lottery history and will make 20 instant millionaires.
"We’re excited about this new Scratchers game because it offers a 76.2 percent prize payout - the highest ever in Lottery history - which means more winners," said Bill Burton, instant game product manager for the Missouri Lottery. "In addition to the top two prize levels, there are more than 7,500 prizes from $1,000 to $25,000 up for grabs."
The $20 game, "4 Million Dollar Cash Bonanza," officially began on Jan. 26. It offers more than $175 million in prizes.
"Several other states lotteries have introduced $20 instant games, and they’ve been successful in generating revenue for important programs in those states," Burton noted.
