“The Hot family of games (FOGs) represents the first time the Virginia Lottery has included an oversized ticket within a FOG. Our goal was to bring some much needed attention to the larger format games which has become less of a novelty to our players over the years. We added dual color imaging under the latex to enhance play action so when a player reveals a Red ‘5’ or ‘Hot,’ it multiplies the win. This family of games also features a less familiar prize pool which is loaded with wins ending in 5. The first-week indexes by price point were +117 ($1), +116 ($2), +121 ($5) and +104 ($10). The games are grouped together at retail where possible and supported by a feature slide on the attract screens of our Gemini machines.”—Ryan Walters, Scratch Games Manager, Virginia Lottery
