Four New Instant Games Available Today
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – January 27, 2006 – Four new instant games featuring top prizes of $500 and $5,000 went on sale at lottery-contracted retail locations statewide this morning. The new $1 and $2 games join the other instant scratch-off games already on sale.
The two new $1 games include Quick 5’s and Fast Cash:
- Quick 5’s features eight different prize levels, which include a free ticket, and a top prize of $500. Anytime players find the number “5,” they win the corresponding prize beneath the winning number. Overall odds of winning are 1 in 4.78
- Fast Cash has nine different prize levels, which include a free ticket, and, like Quick 5’s, has a top prize of $500. Players win by matching three identical prize amounts to win that amount. For example, players win $20 when they reveal three $20 prize amounts out of the nine prize amounts in the play area. Overall odds of winning are 1 in 4.98.
The two new $2 games are Winner Take All and Cool Cash:
- A gaming theme that has broad appeal with consumers in lottery jurisdictions across the U.S., Winner Take All features eight prize levels and a top prize of $5,000. Players must match either of two “Winning Numbers” to any of the 10 “Your Numbers” to win a corresponding prize for that number. Players win all 10 prizes on the ticket when they find a “money bag” graphic symbol in the “Your Numbers” play area.
- Cool Cash has 12 prize levels and a top prize of $5,000. Like Winner Take All, Cool Cash players must match either of two “Cool Numbers” to any of the 10 “Your Numbers” to win a corresponding prize for that number. Overall odds of winning for each of these new $2 games are 1 in 5.01.
The Oklahoma Lottery began selling its first tickets on Oct. 12, 2005. In the ensuing three-plus months, through Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2006, Oklahoma Lottery players have redeemed instant game prizes totaling more than $37 million.
According to lottery officials, today’s quadruple launch is part of a broader initiative to continually refresh the scratch-off product category and to maintain a high level of excitement among players. “We also want our players to know there are more than 500 top prizes from $500 to $25,000 still to be won in the scratch games that have been on sale prior to today’s launch,” said Jim Scroggins, executive director of the Oklahoma Lottery. A listing of the remaining prizes for each instant scratch-off game can be found on the lottery’s official website at www.lottery.ok.gov.
