ALBUQUERQUE – New Mexico Lottery Holiday Scratcher games arrive in stores today, October 6. Although some may think it’s a little early, retail stores are already touting twinkling ornaments dangling on red and gold displays.
This year’s five festive Scratchers include:
- Season’s Greetings, a $10 game printed with sparkly silver ink with a top prize of $100,000;
- Ho Ho Ho 10X features a classy Claus and $50,000 top prizes;
- Holiday Magic has $25,000 top prizes! Find 3 like colorful holiday icons under the snowy surface to win cash prizes;
- Holiday Gold 5X glitters with gold ornaments and offers 11 chances to win with top prizes of $10,000; and
- Holiday Surprise Doubler is decked with cheerful gift boxes and features $1,000 top prizes.
While typically players purchase Scratchers for themselves, many players find they make great gifts for any holiday occasion. Available in more than 1,100 locations, they can be used to fill cards, stockings, or office “in-boxes.”
Last year, New Mexico player Emerson Charley of Shiprock purchased four “Jackpot Party” Scratchers for gifts. Then, just two days before Christmas, he played them and won $50,000! What a great way to “wrap up” his holiday shopping!
