The New Mexico Lottery is giving away 100 prizes of free gas to players of its Scratcher games.

Players can enter non-winning tickets purchased from current NewMexico Lottery Scratcher games into a drawing for 100 gas cards valuedat $100 each. All entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. on June 27.Complete drawing rules are available at www.nmlottery.com. The drawing will be held July 1 at the Lottery's Albuquerque headquarters.

Scratcher ticket sales for FY 2008 total $79.1 million so far thisyear with players winning about $45 million. The fiscal year ends inJune.

Since 1996, the Lottery has raised $355 million for education andmore than 50,000 students have attended college on Legislative LotteryScholarships.

I wonder if this will help increase sales for scratch-off tickets for the month. If it does well, maybe other states will follow the same lead and offer gas cards as prizes.
