The New Mexico Lottery last week introduced a new scratch game that is certain to be a hot gift item for lottery players this holiday season.
A scented Scratcher game from the New Mexico Lottery is available now to holiday shoppers seeking fun surprises for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, greeting cards and those ever-practical and predictable presents of sweat socks and underwear.
The peppermint-scented "Candy Cane Magic" conceals 10 numbers under images of red-and-white candy mints.
The fragrant game is priced at $2. It's one of three holiday Scratcher games featuring top prizes of $1,000, $15,000 and $65,000.
New Year's Eve Raffle
On Dec. 31, the lottery will draw winning numbers for the New Year's Eve Raffle, which offers prizes totaling $625,000. With only 125,000 tickets in the game, players have the best odds ever to win one of the four top prizes of $125,000 each. A raffle ticket is priced at $10.
Scratchers and New Year's Eve Raffle tickets are featured in the lottery's holiday gift guide at www.nmlottery.com.
