The Pennsylvania Lottery added the $50 price point to its scratch portfolio and it is a real “money maker.”
“Pennsylvania Lottery games that went on sale December 28, 2021 featured our first-ever $50 Scratch-Off called, $5 Million Money Maker,” said Kara Sparks, Director of Products, Pennsylvania Lottery. “This ticket awards top prizes of $5 million to lucky winners and launched just in time for the Lottery’s 50th anniversary, which will be celebrated March 7, 2022.”
Launch week sales were strong. “$5 Million Money Maker has already delivered a one-week sales record for an individual Scratch-Off game and contributed nearly 20% of Scratch-Off sales during that record week,” said Sparks.
In addition to offering five top prizes of $5 million, the $50 ticket features a star bonus where a player can win $1,000 instantly if he uncovers a $1,000 burst. Reveal a 20X or a 50X symbol, multiply any prize won in the main play area.
More higher price point scratch tickets will launch in the spring. “In addition to the $50 ticket called $5 Million Money Maker, in March we plan to launch the $30 My Three Million Scratch-Off. We’re also offering another licensed property coming up in April, the $20 ticket $1 Million Price is Right®,” said Sparks.
