Tickets went on sale Friday for the Oklahoma Cash 5 game.
Players pay $1 for a lottery card. The big payout comes if a player selects the five numbers selected in drawings at 9:10 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The lottery pays the taxes for the $25,000 prize. Selection of four numbers pays $500, three pays $10, and two results in a free lottery ticket.
The numbers to choose from are one to 36.
“The idea is for something new, fresh,” said Jim Scroggins, the Oklahoma Lottery's executive director. “Players always look for a new game, a new idea.”
Revenue from the game is expected to range between $300,000 and $400,000 per week, officials predict.
Scroggins said recently that high gasoline prices and other factors hampered lottery sales this summer.
Also unveiled Thursday was a scratch-off game with a Monopoly theme and another called, “Football Fever,” which features game cards in University of Oklahoma red and Oklahoma State University orange hues.
Both games come with a $500 top prize.
