The Texas Lottery has launched its new ‘FRENZY’ family of scratch ticket games featuring a host of cash and event prizes.
The top prizes range from $5,000 to $1m – the latter (at a $20 price point) gives players the chance of winning one of four $1m top prizes, with more than $97m in total cash prizes throughout the game and featuring 30 chances to win.
The $500,000 FRENZY offers players 30 chances to win a cash prize on every ticket, including one of five $500,000 top prizes.
In addition, there is a $200,000 FRENZY ($5 price point) and a $5,000 one (1$).
Gary Grief, Executive Director of the Texas Lottery, commented: “The Texas Lottery is thrilled to launch the FRENZY scratch ticket family that offers chances to win not only exciting cash prizes, but also an exclusive opportunity for Texas Lottery players to experience some of the hottest country music performers in a way that cannot be acquired or purchased anywhere else.
“As the Texas Lottery sets its sights on another record-breaking year for scratch ticket sales, we believe these four new games will play a major role in achieving that goal, which will help generate important revenue for public education in Texas.”
Meanwhile, non-winning tickets can be entered into the promotional second-chance drawings for a chance to win a trip to Nashville, Tennessee, where the CMT Music Awards Weekend Getaway takes place.
The number of entries is based on a sliding scale of ticket price. For example, a $1m FRENZY ticket at the $20 price point earns the player 20 entries in the drawing, while a $5,000 ticket ($1 price point) earns the player one entry in the drawing,
Winners will be able to watch ‘big name’ country musicians perform while the two-day activities also include a VIP viewing party with ‘special guest’ performances and a dinner with other Texas Lottery winners at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The entry deadlines for the first four separate second-chance drawings are: June 3, July 1, Aug. 5 and Sept. 2. The entry deadline for the fifth drawing will be scheduled once the end-of-game dates for the games are determined by the Texas Lottery.
The news follows last month’s release of the new Texas Motor Speedway scratch-off game, which features $20.1m in total cash prizes.
