Texas Lottery’s “20X” Scratch-Off Game: Supporting Veterans and Making Dreams Come True
In a heartwarming move, the Texas Lottery has unveiled a brand-new scratch-off game with a noble mission – supporting Texas veterans. The “20X” scratch-off ticket made its debut on September 18th, promising exciting prizes and a chance to make a real difference in the lives of veterans and their families.
A Ticket That Gives Back
The “20X” scratch-off ticket is more than just a game; it’s a symbol of solidarity with Texas veterans. Priced at just $2, this ticket offers players the opportunity to win prizes ranging from $2 to an impressive $30,000, with various exciting amounts in between. With odds of 1 in 4.95, there’s a good chance you’ll be a winner, but the true victory lies in where the proceeds go.
Supporting Texas Veterans
The heartwarming red text on the “20X” ticket proudly proclaims “Supporting Texas Veterans.” Every ticket sold contributes to a noble cause – the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA). This state agency is dedicated to providing reimbursement grants to eligible charities, local government agencies, and veterans service organizations, ensuring that they can continue offering direct assistance to Texas veterans and their families. It’s a cause that resonates deeply with the people of Texas.
A Decade-Long Commitment
The Texas Lottery’s commitment to veterans dates back to 2009 when they introduced their first veteran-benefiting scratch-off ticket. Over the years, this initiative has gained momentum, thanks to the tireless efforts of lawmakers like Rep. Chris Turner and former Sen. Leticia Van de Putte. Their legislation, passed during the 81st Legislative Session, mandated the creation of scratch ticket games to benefit the FVA. It was a landmark moment, and on June 19, 2009, then-Gov. Rick Perry signed it into law. Since then, over $219 million has been donated to veteran programs, making a significant impact.
Limited Top Prizes, Abundant Joy
For those eyeing the coveted $30,000 top prize, here’s a tip: there are only five of these golden tickets available. Additionally, there are 15 second prize tickets worth $1,000. As you move down the prize ladder, the quantities increase. For instance, there are a whopping 566,896 $5 prize tickets and 921,218 $2 prize tickets. In total, the “20X” game offers an astonishing $11.5 million in scratch-off prizes, promising excitement for everyone.
Joining the Ranks of Veteran-Benefiting Games
The “20X” veteran-benefiting scratch-off proudly joins the Texas Lottery’s family of games dedicated to supporting veterans. This includes “10X The Money” (Game No. 2414), which began in June, and “Break The Bank” (Game No. 2503), launched in March. Together, these games are making a real difference in the lives of Texas veterans, providing much-needed support and recognition.
In conclusion, when you purchase a “20X” scratch-off ticket, you’re not just trying your luck; you’re making a meaningful contribution to the well-being of Texas veterans. The Texas Lottery’s unwavering commitment to this cause has already made a significant impact, and with your support, it will continue to do so. So, go ahead, try your luck, and be part of this heartwarming mission to support those who’ve served our great state.
