Monday July 29,2013 : MULTI-STATE GAME FROM MDI ENTERTAINMENT
Instant scratchcard with a multi-state second chance game
Scientific Games Corporation subsidiary MDI Entertainment LLC has created an instant game with a 2nd Chance opportunity to win a monthly, multi-state progressive jackpot of $ 1 million or more called MONOPOLY Jackpot.
The game features the MONOPOLY brand on both instant ticket artwork and the 2nd Chance interactive game gives holders of non-winning scratch tickets the chance to play an internet-based "collect and win" game offering rolling jackpot prizes which are awarded through a monthly draw.
Non-winning ticket players can register on lottery microsites built and managed by MDI to play the interactive game.
With each ticket entered, the player will have a chance to collect one or more property cards, which will be stored in the player’s account. Once a player completes a property group, they will be awarded an animated wheel spin with potential prizes that can include merchandise, one of 10 instant jackpots (ranging from $25 to $2,500) or entries in the monthly progressive jackpot drawing. The prize will be predetermined based on the instant tickets entry number.
The 2nd Chance game is being created in HTML5, enabling play on desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
“While MDI has created many very successful instant games bearing the MONOPOLY brand before, this one is truly the first of its kind,” said Steve Saferin, President, Properties Group and Chief Creative Officer for Scientific Games.
“To our knowledge, no other instant lottery ticket has ever offered a 2nd Chance game that encourages player participation with a collection play style and a multi-state progressive jackpot. Plus, this game offers true rolling jackpots and multiplier opportunities. And because it’s linked, all participating jurisdictions, no matter what their size, will be able to offer their players a chance at a monthly jackpot that could top $1 million. It’s an exciting game and with the HTML5 technology and the social media interface, we think it has tremendous potential for lotteries to reach new players.”
The instant game is scheduled to launch later this year.
