CT Lottery and Foxwoods® Resort Casino Announce Return of Exclusive Foxwoods Scratch Ticket 
“Escape to Foxwoods” features cash prizes up to $100,000 and 21 Second Chance drawings

Rocky Hill, CT/June 11, 2018 – Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s “Foxwoods® High Rollers” scratch ticket, the CT Lottery today announced the launch of its all-new "Escape to Foxwoods®” $10 scratch ticket. 

Starting June 11, each Escape to Foxwoods scratch ticket will provide players a chance to win cash prizes up to $100,000 instantly.  Players can also enter their non-winning Escape to Foxwoods scratch tickets online (ctlottery.org/foxwoods) into twenty-one (21) Second Chance drawings for the chance to win even more exclusive prizes. 

“Last year’s ‘Foxwoods High Rollers’ instant game sold out very quickly—it was literally the fastest-selling $10 ticket in CT Lottery history,” said Chelsea Turner, CT Lottery’s Interim President & CEO.  “Prizes for the new ‘Escape to Foxwoods’ ticket are equally exciting, so we fully expect our players to be just as responsive.”

Every Thursday starting June 28, the CT Lottery will award two Second Chance drawing prizes. The first prize, an Escape to Foxwoods “Weekend Getaway” for two, includes a complimentary two-night stay at Foxwoods Resort Casino, round trip ground transportation, a $1,000 Foxwoods Gift Card to be used during the stay, and a $2,000 check from the CT Lottery.  Another lucky winner will receive a second prize for a $1,000 Foxwoods Gift Card, and a $1,000 check from the CT Lottery

To add even more chances to win, Foxwoods is offering Third Chance drawings where players will receive anywhere from $5 to $50 in Bonus Slot Play, Foxwoods Rewards Points and more.  

“We are thrilled to once again bring together two of the top gaming brands in Connecticut,” said Felix Rappaport, President & CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino.  “The highly anticipated Escape to Foxwoods scratch ticket will offer our loyal supporters a new and very exciting gaming opportunity.”  

Tickets for Escape to Foxwoods (Game 1441) can be purchased at more than 2,900 CT Lottery retailer locations throughout the state, and are also available on property at Foxwoods Grand Effects, Outpost and Winners. 

The overall odds of winning an Escape to Foxwoods cash prize are 1 in 3.60.  Odds of winning a Second Chance drawing prize are dependent on the number of eligible entries received.
