New Mexico Lottery Adds a New Product to its Holiday Game Mix


ALBUQUERQUE – Just in time for the biggest gifting season of the year, new “Give Some! Play Some!™” Scratchers from the New Mexico Lottery offer both a guaranteed $20 virtual Visa® gift card and a $5 Scratcher – all in one purchase.

The “Give Some! Play Some!” gift card product was created in partnership with The J.G. Wentworth Company® (OTCQX: JGWE). This is the first time a lottery ticket and a Visa gift card have been offered together. Players can give a gift card and Scratcher ticket as a gift with a chance to win up to $100 on the Scratcher. The $20 virtual Visa gift card can be used anywhere Visa is accepted. Then again, give the card and play the Scratcher – we won’t tell!

Traditionally, lottery tickets make convenient, fun gifts that appeal to a broad audience. Adding a $20 Visa gift card to a lottery ticket seems a perfect combination for the gift giving season,” said David Barden, New Mexico Lottery CEO. “And, best of all, this unique game offering provides a new opportunity to generate sales for the Legislative Lottery Scholarship Fund.”
