ALBUQUERQUE – The New Mexico Lottery is bringing more fun to two games played only in New Mexico.
Jackpot Quickster Game
On Sunday, a Quickster game called “Red Hot Jackpot Bingo” goes on sale. The $5 game offers a starting jackpot of $1,000 that will grow larger until hit. The game includes more than 75,000 non-jackpot prizes ranging between $5 and $100.
In Red Hot Jackpot Bingo, players look for the caller’s numbers on two Bingo cards. A prize legend at the end of the ticket reveals winning patterns and prize values. The game’s overall odds are 1 in 3.06.
The Quickster line launched in 2012 with top prizes of $100. Tickets print from the same machines that print tickets for drawing games such as Powerball® and Mega Millions®.
Afternoon Pick 3 Drawing
Starting Monday, Pick 3 will offer a 1 p.m. drawing in addition to an evening drawing at 9:30. Players can choose the mid-day drawing, the evening drawing or both.
In Pick 3, players win by matching three numbers from zero to nine in one of three play styles selected when the ticket is purchased.
Tickets cost $1 per play per drawing. Drawings are Monday through Saturday. Prizes range between $5 and $500.
“Our goal is keep lottery games fresh and exciting because it’s important to players and it’s important to Legislative Lottery Scholarships,” said David Barden, New Mexico Lottery CEO.
