Only three weeks in, the new multi-state lottery game Monopoly Millionaires’ Club has delivered on the promise of creating more and more millionaires with the first-ever Top Prize winner from New Jersey winning $21m, and unlocking 14 other $1m winners from nine states and the District of Columbia as a result of the drawing on November 7.
In total, there are over 91K winning tickets ranging from $5 to $21m.
“Our player research consistently indicates that participants would prefer to see the millions of dollars in lottery prizing distributed to more winners, rather than one or two players winning hundreds of millions of dollars each,” Steve Saferin, President of Properties Group and Chief Creative Officer for Scientific Games said. “The game has delivered and created multiple millionaires, and we look forward to the creation of many more millionaires in the future.”
The Monopoly Millionaires’ Club lottery game debuted October 19 in 23 states. Its unique play style features three ways to win $1 million. Players can win the Top Prize, which is capped at $25m and instantly triggers a separate drawing that awards a minimum of 10 Millionaires’ Club prizes of $1m. Lastly, players will also have a shot at a $1 million prize on the upcoming Monopoly Millionaires’ Club TV show, which will debut in February. The show will feature an audience of players who have been randomly selected after completing MONOPOLY-themed Property Sets by entering the web code from their tickets onwww.playmmc.com.
Selected players will be flown to Las Vegas where the show will be taped, and will receive a five-day, four-night stay for two, plus spending money. Billy Gardell, star of “Mike & Molly,” will serve as the host of the show.
The Monopoly Millionaires’ Club lottery game drawings are Fridays at 11:15 p.m. Eastern and tickets are $5 each. Each week the Top Prize is not won, the number of $1m prizes increases.
