NASHVILLE - May is the fifth month of the year – the perfect time for the Tennessee Lottery to introduce its latest instant ticket game, “Fast 5’s.” With Father’s Day just around the corner, May is also a great time to begin honoring Dad with the “Happy Father’s Day” instant ticket game. Both new games will be available at Lottery retailers across the state this week.

Details about the latest instant ticket games include:

Happy Father’s Day, a blue and purple $2 ticket, is a game in which players can instantly win up to $35,000 by matching their numbers to the lucky number on the ticket. Scratch off a “Dad” symbol and instantly win $25. Each ticket has 10 chances to win. Overall odds are 1 in 4.

Fast 5’s, a yellow and black $1 ticket, is a game in which players can instantly win up to $5,555. Simply find a “5” in the play area, and win the prize shown under it. Overall odds are 1 in 4.12.

All Tennessee Lottery profits will go to education programs. Most immediately, the Lottery is charged with raising at least $88 million by July 1 in order to fund scholarships for an estimated 65,000 students expected to attend Tennessee colleges and universities this fall.
