BOSTON, Mas. – The Boston Red Sox have again teamed up with the Massachusetts State Lottery to release another instant game in to the market. The new $10 scratch-off called “Monster Money” was available at 7,500 lottery retailers as of yesterday.

The new scratch card offering has three top prizes of $3million and another seven $1million prizes as well as other cash prizes and  Red Sox merchandise such as jackets, pants, warm-up jerseys and duffle bags. Losing tickets can even be entered into a second chance prize draw for ten lucky people to win a pair of seats at a Red Sox game in the coming season.

State Treasurer Timothy Cahill said that sales of the scratch card are expected to be over $120 million with $97 million paid out in prizes and $14 million given out in local aid to cities and towns.

The first Red Sox scratch ticket was released in 2006 and was the first in the United States to feature a Major League Baseball team logo. “Monster Money” is the fifth Red Sox scratch card and the team has netted $10million from their deal with the state lottery.

The Red Sox are not the only winners in this continuing deal. Since the first game was released in 2006, over $705million worth of Red Sox tickets have been sold, which means that $100million of aid has gone to projects in the towns and cities of Massachusetts.

Larry Lucchino, President and CEO of the Boston Red Sox said, “We know it’s a win-win situation for us, the lottery and the people of the commonwealth as the money generated goes to local aid.”

Other famous sports teams to have a scratch-off ticket on sale in Massachusetts are the New England Patriots (a $5 ticket), the Boston Celtics (two $5 tickets) and the Boston Bruins (a $2 ticket).
