Bid Chairman Sebastian Coe joined Olympics Minister Tessa Jowell and Olympic greats including Denise Lewis, Shirley Robinson and Daley Thompson to launch the 'Go for Gold' card at the East Ham Leisure Centre.
Sebatian Coe said: "The new 'Go for Gold' scratch cards will provide key funding to make the Games happen and we are very grateful to Camelot and National Lottery.
"Seven years from today we will be just a few hours away from welcoming the world to the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games."
The card will cost just £1 to play and punters have just under a 1/5 chance of winning a prize. Lucky players can strike gold with a top prize of £2,012.
