The Arizona Cardinals and the Arizona Lottery announced their latest endeavor stemming from their long-term partnership, which plans to feature an exclusive Arizona Cardinals Scratchers® lottery ticket and bring the joy of football fanfare to Arizona Lottery players throughout the season. The highly anticipated $5 Scratchers ticket will be available at Arizona Lottery retailers starting in September 2016.

With the new Cardinals Scratchers tickets, players can win cash prizes up to $50,000. For those that need another chance at luck, players can enter their non-winning tickets into the second- chance drawing for the opportunity to win experiential prizes. Prizes will include autographed Cardinals memorabilia, Cardinals season tickets, tickets to individual Cardinals home games and exciting trips to support the team on the road. Proceeds from the sales of Cardinals Scratchers tickets benefit important programs and services across the state of Arizona.

“The Lottery is thrilled to expand our long-standing partnership with the Arizona Cardinals,” Executive Director Gregg Edgar said. “We are proud to showcase this one-of-a-kind Scratchers ticket just in time for the much anticipated Arizona Cardinals football season, and can’t wait to see the response from our retailers, players and Cardinals fans.”

To get in on the action, the public is invited to huddle up for the official Cardinals Scratchers launch event on September 6, 2016. The launch event will be held at the Arizona Lottery Phoenix office at 4740 E. University Dr., Phoenix, AZ 85034 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees can mingle with Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders and team mascot Big Red. Fans will also have an opportunity to participate in an exclusive promotion where they receive one $5 Arizona Cardinals Scratchers ticket with the purchase of one $200 Million Cash Explosion® scratchers ticket for $20. Participants also have the opportunity to win Arizona Cardinals game tickets only offered at this event.

The Cardinals Scratchers will be available at Arizona Lottery retailers beginning on September 6, 2016, for $5. For more information about the partnership, Scratchers and launch event, visit
