NASHVILLE – With today’s launch of the Tennessee Lottery’s “Indiana Jones” instant ticket game, fans of the popular films don’t have to wait until the newest installment hits theatres to enjoy an action-packed adventure.
“Indiana Jones” is the first time the Lottery has partnered with the silver screen, with hopes to capture some of the “Indymania” that amassed $1.2 billion in worldwide ticket sales for the first three pictures.
“With the huge amount of nostalgia connected to the ‘Indiana Jones’ character, this new game will be fun for players and add another way for the Tennessee Lottery to raise dollars for education,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Lottery.
The instant ticket game, which features images from the past three “Indiana Jones” films and one from the newest installment, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” offers a variety of prizes, including:
• The chance to win up to $100,000 instantly;
• The chance to win one of 474 licensed prize packages that will be awarded through three separate second-chance drawings. Prizes packs include a brown “Indy” fedora, leather satchel, T-shirt, leather jacket with logo of newest film and an Indiana Jones explorer shirt. To enter, register non-winning “Indiana Jones” tickets at;
• A variety of prizes offered through special promotions throughout the state, including tickets to be one of the first to see the film in several Tennessee cities.
“It’s been almost 19 years since we last saw Indiana Jones, and we’re looking forward to his arrival at more than 4,700 Tennessee Lottery retailer locations,” said Hargrove.
Be sure to watch for Lottery promotions related to the game prior to the launch of “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” at theatres nationwide on May 22.
Since the Tennessee Lottery began selling tickets on Jan. 20, 2004, it has raised more than $1.1 billion to fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
