NASHVILLE - Tennessee Lottery players have an opportunity to feel like kings and queens with “Royal Riches,” one of the Lottery’s newest instant ticket games. Not only does the game offer over $8.5 million in cash prizes, including top prizes of $100,000, but it also features a “bonus spot” that gives players a chance win $50. The game is one of three new instant games introduced this month and available at retailers across the state.

To play “Royal Riches,” simply match any of “your numbers” to either winning number and win the prize shown for that number. Uncover a “5X” symbol and instantly win 5 times the prize shown for that number. If a diamond symbol is uncovered after scratching the bonus spot, the player wins $50 instantly! Overall odds: 1 in 2.74.

Other instant games launched in August include:

”Struck by Luck,” a $2 game in which players can win up to $30,000 instantly. Match any of your numbers to either winning number and win the prize shown for that number. Get a “moneybag” symbol and instantly win all 10 prizes. More than $4 million in cash prizes is available! Overall odds are 1 in 3.85.

“4’s Galore” a $1 game with a top instant prize of $4,444. Just find a “4” symbol and win the prize shown. Overall odds are 1 in 4.54.

The Tennessee Lottery began selling its first tickets on January 20, 2004.
