The New Kidcon Lottery has introduced a really big game. Literally. It's measures 4 feet by 4 feet. It's the ScratchMatTM. On one side is a 4' x 4' scratch-off ticket. "This is not the kind of ticket you play in one sitting, and even if you did, it would take you about an hour," says lottery director Sam Rawlings. On the other side is a special dry-erase board with clear pockets for numbers games. "Players can write the winning numbers down with a dry-erase marker (included), put their ticket in the clear sleeve, and they can circle the numbers without marking the actual ticket." Every ticket comes with a bag with special security seal. The ScratchMatTM costs $75, and also includes a random sampling of online and instant games randomly selected by the computer at purchase. The numbers games are automatically printed, and the terminal will tell the clerk what other instant games (scratch or pull-tab) to put in the bag. Rawlings also added, "We recommend that people don't buy more than one of these tickets, they are expensive, and they're arent that many. Besides, what will you do with 3 dry-erase boards?". Overall odds of breaking even are 1 in 2.4, and every ticket guarantees getting at least $20 back. To redeem a ticket, peel the scratch ticket from the board before you take it to the store.

      New Kidcon is a made-up state of mine. If I say it's in New Kidcon, it doesn't exist.

      Yet.
