Texas Lottery® players have a chance to experience the excitement of winning a cash prize when they play any of the four games in the new FRENZY family of scratch ticket games. The games range in price from $1 to $20 and combine for more than $245 million in total cash prizes, including top prizes ranging from $5,000 to $1 million.
In addition, FRENZY players can enter their non-winning tickets into the CMT Music Awards® Weekend Getaway Promotional Second-Chance Drawings for a chance to win a trip to Nashville, Tennessee, for a CMT Music Awards® Weekend Getaway, featuring live performances by big name country music artists. Winners will attend two days of star-studded festivities, including a VIP CMT Music Awards® viewing party with special guest performances, a dinner with other Texas Lottery winners at the world-famous Country Music Hall of Fame and more.
“The Texas Lottery is thrilled to launch the FRENZY scratch ticket family that offers chances to win not only exciting cash prizes, but also an exclusive opportunity for Texas Lottery players to experience some of the hottest country music performers in a way that cannot be acquired or purchased anywhere else,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. “As the Texas Lottery sets its sights on another record-breaking year for scratch ticket sales, we believe these four new games will play a major role in achieving that goal, which will help generate important revenue for public education in Texas.”
$1,000,000 FRENZY at the $20 price point will give players a chance to experience the thrill of winning one of four $1 million top prizes. The game is loaded with more than $97 million in total cash prizes throughout the game and features 30 chances to win.
The craze continues at the $10 price level with $500,000 FRENZY, which features more than $77.2 million in total cash prizes. Texas Lottery players will have 30 chances to win a cash prize on every ticket, including one of five $500,000 top prizes.
With over $60.1 million in total cash prizes available in $200,000 FRENZY, players will have 25 chances to win a cash prize – including six $200,000 top prizes – for only $5.
At the $1 price point, $5,000 FRENZY offers lottery players five chances to feel the excitement of a win. There are more than $11.2 million in cash prizes available throughout the game, including 15 top prizes worth $5,000.
FRENZY scratch ticket players that enter non-winning tickets into the CMT Music Awards® Weekend Getaway Promotional Second-Chance Drawings through their Luck Zone accounts will receive a number of entries based on the price point of the entered ticket— e.g., a $1,000,000 FRENZY ticket at the $20 price point earns the player 20 entries in the drawing, a $5,000 Frenzy ticket ($1 price point) earns the player one entry in the drawing, etc. The entry deadlines for the first four separate second-chance drawings are: June 3, July 1, Aug. 5 and Sept. 2. The entry deadline for the fifth drawing will be scheduled once the end-of-game dates for the games are determined by the Texas Lottery.
