NASHVILLE - The Tennessee Lottery brings the phenomenally popular game of Monopoly to life like never before with its newest instant-ticket game, available this week at retailers throughout the state. Not only can players scratch for a chance to win cash prizes of up to $100,000, but they have the chance to play the game virtually online for more chances to win additional prizes.

“This is the first game of its kind for the Tennessee Lottery and we’re excited about attracting new players with the virtual component,” said President and CEO Rebecca Hargrove. “As always, we continue to offer exciting new products to maximize dollars for the education programs we fund.”

Like all instant games from the Tennessee Lottery, “Monopoly” offers players the chance to win additional prizes by registering non-winning tickets at Every non-winning “Monopoly” ticket registered will be entered into a second-chance drawing for $100,000. However, with “Monopoly,” players have an additional option to play an online version of the game to be awarded entries into a series of second-chance drawings for cash and premiere editions of the popular board game.
