Texas Lottery and Houston Texans Team Up For The 15th Year On New Scratch Ticket Game & Second-Chance Drawings
AUSTIN – As the anticipation for football season builds, the Texas Lottery and the Houston Texans are collaborating for the 15th consecutive year on the Houston Texans scratch ticket game and promotional second-chance drawings. The latest version of the $5 game for the 2023 season launched on Monday, Aug. 14 and is available at all Texas Lottery® retailers where scratch ticket games are sold.
The latest Houston Texans scratch ticket game offers more than $18.6 million in total cash prizes, including four top prizes of $100,000 and 865 non-cash second-chance prizes. Overall odds of winning an instant-win cash prize are one in 3.79, including break-even prizes.
“The Texas Lottery is thrilled to celebrate 15 years as a partner of the Houston Texans,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. “Our teamwork over the years has been remarkable, as the proceeds from the Houston Texans scratch ticket games have made a great impact on public education in Texas. In addition, the Houston Texans scratch ticket games have given Texas Lottery players and Houston Texans enthusiasts the chance to play for exciting cash prizes and exclusive second-chance prizes that offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.”
Since the first Houston Texans scratch ticket in 2009, all annual versions of the game have combined to generate more than $267 million in sales, with $58.6 million of that total being transferred to the Foundation School Fund, which supports Texas public education. During that time, more than $182.7 million in prizes from the game has been awarded to winners and more than $13.3 million in commissions has been transferred to retailers around the state.
“We are so proud of our longstanding partnership with the Texas Lottery and all of its appreciated players throughout Texas,” said Greg Grissom, Houston Texans President. “As we celebrate 15 years of partnership, we will continue to work together to offer Texans fans throughout the state an opportunity to win one-of-kind experiences not available anywhere else.”
Players can enter non-winning Houston Texans scratch tickets into any of the five promotional second-chance drawings to be held throughout the run of the game for the chance to win experiential prizes, including a Private Plane Away Game Trip, Luxury Suite & On-Field Contest Experience, Houston Texans Season Tickets or Texans Merchandise Prize Pack. Before entering non-winning tickets into the drawings, Texas Lottery players must register or already be registered with the Texas Lottery Luck Zone.
The five entry deadlines for the separate second-chance drawings are: Sept. 15, Oct. 27, Dec. 1 and Jan. 5, 2024, with the final drawing date yet to be determined. For more information about the Houston Texans scratch ticket game and promotional second-chance drawings, visit texaslottery.com.
