27 November 2007

EVERLY HILLS, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The newest Scratchers® ticket, Mad Money, goes on sale this week! This unique movie-themed Scratchers® game represents a first time partnership between Overture Films and the California Lottery. Directed by Oscar® winner Callie Khouri, Mad Money stars Diane Keaton, Queen Latifah, and Katie Holmes as three female employees of the Federal Reserve who plot to steal money that is about to be destroyed. These $1 Mad Money Scratchers® will be available at the over 19,000 Lottery retail locations throughout the state.

Mad Money Scratchers® will not only offer players the opportunity to win cash prizes ranging from $10 to $1,000, but will also include unique second chance prizes as well. Second chance draw prizes include: a trip for two to the Los Angeles premiere of Mad Money, a trip for two to a future Overture Films movie premiere, a set visit for a future Overture Films production, a walk-on role for an upcoming movie, Mad Money DVDs, autographed Mad Money movie posters, and a Starz subscription. Odds of winning any prize are 1 in 5.45 and odds of winning a cash prize are 1 in 11.96.

"When people think of California, they think of Hollywood, which is why the California Lottery is thrilled to enter into a new partnership with friends in the movie industry, Overture Films," said Lottery Director Joan Borucki. "Mad Money is a great tie-in for our products!"

Overture's releases continue on March 14th, 2008, with Sleepwalking, an emotional drama about a young girl's search for parental love, starring Oscar® winner Charlize Theron. Following is Tom McCarthy's The Visitor, Overture's most recent acquisition from the 2007 Toronto Film Festival, which will arrive in theaters on April 11th, 2008.
