The Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Lottery on Thursday announced details for this year’s Packers scratch game, a contest in which the top prize is a pair of club seats to all 2011 Packers games at Lambeau Field.
Four top prizes are available, and, in addition to the club seats, winners also will receive $10,000 in cash. The game is $10 per ticket.
“Instantly winning two club seat tickets to all 2011 Packers home games definitely will build the anticipation for the second season of the scratch game,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We’re excited to partner with the Wisconsin Lottery for a second year and again see fans have fun with the game. Property tax relief for Wisconsin taxpayers is a continued benefit as well.”
All of the prizes are instant-win, including 48 suite prize packages which include suite seats and VIP amenities at a single game, and 100 $300 Packers Pro Shop gift card prize. Cash prizes in the game range from $10 to $15,000.
“There are no drawings to wait for at the end of the game,” said Wisconsin Lottery director Mike Edmonds. “These highly-coveted Packers seats and the other prizes are going to be out there in stores just waiting for someone to win them. With any ticket, at any time, lucky Lottery players could win a season of fun at Lambeau Field watching their beloved green and gold. It’s going to be exciting for our players.”
Lottery ticket revenues are returned to the state to help offset property taxes. Last year’s Packers scratch game generated more than $1.5 million in tax relief.
The new game will be available for purchase beginning July 23. More information on the Packers Wisconsin Lottery game is available online at www.wilottery.com.
In addition, last year’s grand prize winner, Rosemary Breitzman of Menomonie, Wis., was presented her club seat tickets for the 2010 season. As the grand prize winner, she won four club seats to every Packers home game in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons, including the playoffs. She will also have the option to purchase those seats for 2013 and beyond.
