The Massachusetts Lottery is reminding players to purchase “Your Ticket To The Biggest Celebration.” The ticket’s launch coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Mass Lottery’s first drawing that took place on April 6, 1972.
“As our first oversized ticket, with all winning tickets totaling $50 or more, this ticket offers our players a unique experience. If early results are any indication, we expect this ticket to perform very well. After just one week in the market, demand for this ticket is high,” said Edward Farley, Chief Marketing Officer, Massachusetts Lottery.
The ticket is titled $50,000 Jumbo Bucks and priced at $10. “It features a variety of 50-themed elements, including the game’s top prize of $50,000 and the best chance to win a $50 instant prize in Mass Lottery history. Additionally, all winning tickets will total $50 or more,” said Tom Aiello, Instant Tickets Product Manager, Massachusetts Lottery.
Later in April, Aiello said the lottery will introduce a new $30 game with a top prize of $15 million. This game will feature the best chances to win $500 and $100 in our instant ticket history. Minimum ticket prize will be $40 or more.
