DENVER, Col. — The Colorado Lottery has launched a new $20 Scratch game that provides players with the best odds of winning ever offered by the Lottery.
The overall probability of winning any prize in the new $18 Million Money Machine is 1 in 2.7 — better than any other Lottery game offered in the state.
As its name suggests, $18 Million Money Machine is packed with $18 million in prizes, including 15, $50,000 top prizes.
"For $20, our players will be getting a pretty good shot at winning," said Colorado Lottery Director Jack Boehm. "We believe this new game will generate a lot of excitement and may even entice new players to give our games a try."
Beyond the $50,000 top prize, $18 Million Money Machine also offers players a chance at winning anywhere from $20 to $10,000. For holders of non-winning tickets, an additional opportunity to win $50,000 is available by registering in a second-chance drawing on the lottery's Web site.

Proceeds from the Colorado Lottery's games — Scratch, Cash 5, Lotto, and Powerball — stay in Colorado to improve the quality of life in the state. Lottery dollars have contributed to building parks, restoring trails, preserving open space, protecting wildlife and improving recreational opportunities for citizens statewide. Since its founding 26 years ago, the Lottery has returned more than $2 billion to Colorado through its proceeds partners — Great Outdoors Colorado, the Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado State Parks.
