When you play instant games, do you like to scratch fast or take your time? A new $5 scratch-off on sale Tuesday called ‘$100,000 Crossword’ is perfect if you prefer to savor the experience. Not only is $100,000 the largest prize ever offered on a crossword-themed game, the bigger ticket offers a bonus puzzle to make the fun last longer.
Here’s how the game works. Below the crossword puzzle, a player scratches to reveal 18 letters. If three or more words in the puzzle can be spelled using only those 18 letters, the ticket wins a prize. The bonus puzzle at the bottom of the ticket offers more chances to win. The game begins with more than $10.3 million in total prizes.
If you like card games more than crosswords, you can try your luck on a Blackjack Tripler ticket. The $2 game starts Tuesday with five top prizes of $21,000. There are eight hands on a ticket, each with the player’s cards and a prize. The prize for a given hand is won when the player’s cards add up to a higher total than the dealer’s total. If a player’s hand totals 21, the player wins triple the prize shown. The game begins with more than $5.3 million in total prizes.
Best of luck scratching and matching. See you soon here in the Lucke Zone.
