California Millionaire game debuts

16 January 2008

ACRAMENTO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Adding drawn-out drama to instant gratification, the California Lottery has issued tickets for the new Scratchers® game, California Millionaire.

The game is a $5 ticket that offers 15 instant million-dollar prizes, as well as the opportunity for a second-chance draw that will award an additional five one-million dollar prizes. Tickets are available at the more than 19,000 Lottery retailers throughout the state.

This game is a take-off on a popular game of the past, The Next Millionaire. Ticket sales for California Millionaire are expected to be brisk.

"Millionaire Scratchers games are extremely popular," said Joan Borucki, director of the California Lottery. "With player demand so high, expect California Millionaire tickets to sell out quickly."

More than 95 cents of every Lottery dollar is returned to the community in the form of contributions to education, prizes and retail commissions. The California Lottery contributes at least 34 cents of every dollar that players spend on Lottery products to public education and returns more than 50 percent of sales to players in the form of prizes. Since its inception in 1985, the Lottery has contributed more than $20 billion to California schools out of total sales of more than $54.8 billion. Retailers win too, earning $3.5 billion in compensation since 1985.
