Scholarship student designed N.M Lottery scratch game ticket

New Mexico LotteryNew Mexico Lottery: Scholarship student designed N.M Lottery scratch game ticket

Full circle: student educated with lottery scholarship funds now works for lottery

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The New Mexico Lottery in August launched "Red vs. Green," an instant "scratch-off" game that was designed by a 22-year-old lottery graphic designer who attended UNM on a Legislative Lottery Scholarship.

The new game depicts the state's favorite cuisine as overheated chile track stars competing in a frantic footrace.

Red vs. Green tickets cost $1 each.  Players can win instant prizes up to $2,000, and non-winning tickets can enter a second-chance drawing for prizes of a gas grill and regional chile products.

Second-chance entries can be submitted at the lottery's official home page (see link below).  Winners will be drawn on Oct. 27.

The Red vs. Green scratch-off ticket was created by Joby Elliott, a lottery graphic designer who attended college on a Legislative Lottery Scholarship.

The 22-year-old Socorro native proposed a game about rival chile athletes as a fresh take on the state's passion for peppers and the popular question asking diners to choose between red or green chile.  Elliott also illustrated the game's fleet-footed chile characters.

Elliott is a studio art major who plans to graduate from the University of New Mexico next year.  He joined the lottery in 2008.

In addition to illustrating Scratchers, Elliott creates content for the lottery's website and its player advertising displays installed in 1,100 retail stores.

I worked with a woman about 10 years ago whos husband was a district manager for Shell gas stations and he had designed a scratcher named Winter Wonderland for the Hoosier Lottery. She had a large (about 18" x 12") cardboard cutout of the ticket in her office. It was the first scratcher I ever played. I lost and havent improved much since.
