"500 Grand" is a $20 scratch game. If players match any "winning numbers" to any of "your numbers" in the play area on the front of each ticket, they win the prize shown for that number. If they find the "star" symbol they win that prize instantly, and if they find the "5X" symbol, they win five times the prize shown for that symbol. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.07.
Three top prizes of $500,000 are still up for grabs in the 500 Grand game, as well as five prizes of $10,000 and 58 prizes of $1,000.Return to top↑
