$15 scratch lottery product approved
THE NSW Government has approved an application by NSW Lotteries to introduce a $15 scratch lottery product, Minister for Hospitality, George Souris, announced today.
The maximum prize will be $1 million.
“A $10 instant scratchie has been available in NSW for more than 17 years.
“Golden Casket has offered $15 instant lottery tickets in Queensland, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and the ACT since 2009.
“I am advised that the $15 tickets represent just five per cent of instant lottery sales by Golden Casket and are generally purchased as gifts on special occasions, Mr Souris said.
The Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing in Queensland has not received any complaints about the introduction of the $15 scratchies.
