New Mexico Lottery Launches Holiday Games

Ticket Sales Provide College Scholarships

ALBUQUERQUE – Santa’s reindeer are head over hooves on the New Mexico Lottery’s $1 holiday Scratcher available in stores now.

With three ticket scenes, the $1 “Reindeer Games” Scratcher features top prizes of $1,500. For a chance to win top prizes of $4,000, the lottery offers a $2 Scratcher called “Mistle Dough.”

Both “Reindeer Games” and “Mistle-Dough” include holiday symbols that if revealed double the prize shown.

The lottery also offers a $1 “Jingle Bucks” Quickster that features top prizes of $100. In Quickster games, players circle or mark matching numbers or symbols with a pen or pencil to identify prizes. Tickets print from the same machines that print tickets for drawing games such as Powerball® and Mega Millions®.

At the holidays, New Mexico Lottery games are popular stocking stuffers, gift tags and party favors.

In the spirit of the season, the New Mexico Lottery is offering several player promotions. Until Feb. 8, players that purchase a minimum $10 Powerball® ticket have a chance to attend a VIP tailgate party with more than 100 athletes from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Now until Dec. 3, players with two non-winning tickets from current $3 Scratcher games have an opportunity to win one of 100 prizes of $1,000. Information about all New Mexico Lottery promotions is available at “Second-Chance City” at www.nmlottery.com.

The New Mexico Lottery reminds players that they should not buy lottery tickets as gifts for children.
