The Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Lottery today unveiled the details of this year's Wisconsin Lottery Packers scratch tickets that give fans a chance to experience two 2016 regular season home games at Lambeau Field in style.
Three different scratch-off tickets, the $1 "Kickoff Cash" ticket, the $3 "Go Pack Go" ticket and the $5 "Green Bay Packers," ticket are available now throughout the state, with the $5 ticket having a cash prize of up to $45,000.
Players who don't win instant cash prizes can still enter the bonus drawing and be entered for the grand prize package, which includes 25 tickets for the winner and his or her friends in a Legends Suite with food, non-alcoholic beverages and two parking passes.
To enter the bonus drawing, players can mail $5 worth of non-winning tickets from the three games to the address on the back of the scratch ticket by March 9, 2016. The grand prize package winner will be selected from the bonus drawing in mid-March. Last year's grand prize winner was Danny Erickson of St. Francis, Wis.
Lottery director Mike Edmonds and Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy announced the new games during a Monday news conference in a Lambeau Field suite.
"This is our sixth year of partnering with the Wisconsin Lottery to offer our fans a chance to cheer us on in person," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. "In addition to enjoying the current scratch-off game, one lucky winner will enjoy a 2016 game in style, catching all the action with 24 friends from one of our suites."
Retailers are pleased with the new offering as well.
"The Packers tickets are one of our fastest and bestselling scratch games," said Wisconsin Lottery Director Mike Edmonds. "Since we began teaming up with the Packers in 2010, we've sold more than $30.9 million worth of tickets, which helps increase property tax relief for Wisconsinites. It's a win-win for everyone involved."
