(Baltimore) – The wait is over. Back for a fourth consecutive year, the new Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off goes on sale today, August 6. The game, which reflects a licensing agreement between the Maryland Lottery and the Baltimore Ravens, offers more than $11 million in instant cash prizes, a second-chance contest with a $1 million prize and several experiential prizes, and a new Fan of the Game feature.
“We are looking forward to partnering again with the Baltimore Ravens on this popular ticket,” said Lottery Director Stephen Martino. “We expect this year’s Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off to be just as popular with Lottery players and Ravens fans as it has been in past years.”
The $5 scratch-off ticket has five $250,000 instant top prizes and will be available at the more than 4,200 Maryland Lottery retail locations across the state, as well as every Baltimore Ravens home game. Like last year, each Ravens Cash Fantasy ticket features a perforated portion with a special second-chance code that players can enter on the Lottery’s website at mdlottery.com/ravens. Players who enter their codes have the opportunity to win premium prizes that include season tickets for life (20 years), season tickets in 2012 and 2013, game-day premium seats, an away trip with the team and more.
New this year, a Fan of the Game will be selected for each Ravens game both home and away. This winner will automatically receive $5,000 in cash and an additional $1,000 for each interception made by the Ravens defense.
Ravens President Dick Cass is also enthusiastic about the ticket’s return.
“The Maryland Lottery is a great partner, and we are very excited to be working with them to launch the new Ravens Cash Fantasy ticket. This is an unprecedented fourth-consecutive year of bringing these great experiences to our fans."
