NASHVILLE - Four lucky Tennessee Lottery players will be Hollywood-bound as part of the newest version of the instant ticket game, “Deal or No Deal,” on sale today at retailer locations throughout the state.

The new game introduces a play-style very similar to the popular “Deal or No Deal” television game show. Not only can players win $100,000 instantly, but they can register non-winning tickets for a chance to be one of four Tennessee players to go to Hollywood.

Once in sunny California, the winners will compete in a round of “Deal or No Deal” to qualify to play the game with Howie, the Banker and the popular 26 models. If a Tennessee player makes it through the elimination round and on to the show, there’s even a chance to win $1 million. However, no one goes home empty handed—even the elimination round offers prizes from $5,000 to $25,000. And last, but not least, the new “Deal or No Deal” instant ticket game includes a second-chance drawing from non-winning entries for a prize of $1 million. This Grand Prize Drawing will include finalists from all other participating lotteries and will be held on Sept. 17, 2008.

“Not only will this be a fun game, it will help raise even more dollars for education,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Lottery.

The Tennessee Lottery began selling its first tickets on January 20, 2004. As of June 30, 2007, the Lottery has raised more than $919 million to fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
