ALBUQUERQUE – A crossword game that offers a total of $2.3 million in prizes is among three New Mexico Lottery Scratchers™ arriving in stores today.

Bonus Word Crossword

“Crossword Scratchers are – in a word – ‘hot,’” said Karla Wilkinson, New Mexico Lottery product director. “They challenge players to find as many complete words as they can from a random mix of letters and players find the wordplay to be especially entertaining.”

The $2 “Money Multiplier” Scratcher offers top prizes of $10,000 and a bonus feature that multiplies prizes up to 5 times.

In the $3 “$25,000 Monte Carlo” Scratcher, the play area features roulette, slots and dice games. The Scratcher includes an opportunity to win up to 15 times on a single ticket.


The New Mexico Lottery also rolled out the “MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB™” Scratcher in late March.

The $5 game includes cash prizes of up to $50,000. Players with non-winning tickets can enter a drawing for a chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas to be studio audience members for the MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES’ CLUB TV Game Show and a chance to be chosen as a contestant on the TV Game Show to play for prizes of up to $1 million.

There will be three drawings throughout the summer. The first drawing is scheduled for June 30, 2015.
