Launching Sept. 5, each $30 Colossal Cashword instant game ticket will offer players a chance to win prizes ranging from $30 up to $2 million. All told, the game will give players the chance to win more than $104 million in prizes.
First launched in July 2001, Cashword-themed tickets are some of the Lottery’s most popular instant games. Cashword games feature crossword puzzles and players win prizes based on the number of complete words they uncover. Colossal Cashword marks the first time that the Lottery has offered the game on a $30 ticket. Cashword games range in price from $2 up to $30.
The Lottery also is debuting a new second chance opportunity with the Colossal Cashword instant game. Players will be able to scan non-winning tickets with the Lottery’s mobile app for a second chance to win. Each non-winning ticket will award players six free games of the online Caribbean Cashword game where they can win $.50 up to $15,000, and either a coupon for free play at retail or entries into a weekly drawing for $300 in instant game tickets.
Lottery instant games, including the new Colossal Cashword game, may be purchased at any of the 10,500 retailers across the state.
In 2022, Lottery players won more than $1.7 billion playing instant games.
