GEORGIA– For the ninth consecutive season, the Georgia Lottery Corp. and the Atlanta Falcons have teamed up to offer an Atlanta Falcons-themed instant game.
Atlanta Falcons is a $5 Scratcher with top prizes of $350,000 and many other great prizes. Tickets went on sale Tuesday at Georgia Lottery retailers statewide.
“We are excited to partner with the Atlanta Falcons again,” Georgia Lottery President and CEO Debbie D. Alford said. “Profits from the purchase of Atlanta Falcons Scratchers will benefit the Georgia Lottery-funded HOPE Scholarship and Pre-K programs. Our partnership with the Falcons is a win for Georgia’s students.”
In the previous eight years, the Georgia Lottery’s Atlanta Falcons-themed games have earned more than $201 million in net sales with over $127 million in prizes. The games have generated more than $74 million for HOPE and Pre-K.
“The Atlanta Falcons have been a longstanding partner of the Georgia Lottery,” Tim Zulawski, chief commercial officer of AMB Sports & Entertainment, said. “We take great pride in knowing that the Falcons-themed lottery ticket sells so well and generates millions of dollars each year for education systems in Georgia.”
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $18.7 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.7 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.4 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
