New Mexico Lottery Expands “Points and Rewards” Promotion


ALBUQUERQUE – Now, New Mexico Lottery players can enter “Roadrunner Cash™” and “Pick 3®” tickets in the VIP Club ‘Points and Rewards’ Promotion. Introduced in 2015, the promotion offers players a second chance to win prizes. Each month, one lucky player wins $5,000 cash and 300 players win points, which can be redeemed for an assortment of items from the online Prize Store.

“Players have asked for more opportunities to win,” said New Mexico Lottery CEO, David Barden. “This program offers players more excitement and added value for their lottery purchase with a second chance to win cash and prizes.” To date, the program has awarded 25 winners of $5,000 and 7,500 winners of Points for Prizes.

The latest $5,000 prize winner, Orlando Chavez from Roswell raved about the promotion. Mr. Chavez said, “I’ve always liked the Second Chance Promotions that the Lottery offers. I was thrilled to win $5,000 in the Points and Rewards Promotion. It’s definitely worth players’ time to enter the Lottery’s Second Chance Promotions. In fact, I have always wondered why more people don’t participate. People do win!”
