CHICAGO, IL—June 6, 2013 — “Summer Cash,” a new instant game from the Illinois Lottery, has arrived—just in time for the warm-weather season. Summer Cash offers players the chance to win prizes up to $2,000. Total available prizes exceed $6.2 million, enough to finance many a summer soirée. Summer Cash joins the Lottery’s current line-up of popular instant games like Spread the Word, which benefits people living with HIV/AIDS in Illinois, and Free Gas, which features more than 700 gasoline debit-card prizes that can be redeemed at gas stations across the United States.

Summer Cash, with three eye-catching designs and an easy to play tic-tac-toe game-style, is sure to be a hit. Players win when they reveal three “X’s” in the same row, column or diagonal line. Players that reveal a sunshine symbol in the same format win double the prize shown. Overall odds of winning on Summer Cash are 1-in-4.74.

Lottery players can purchase Summer Cash along with other new instant games, including King of Clubs and Rockin’ Bingo, at more than 8,100 Lottery retailers statewide. Profits generated through the sale of these games go to the Common School Fund (K-12 public schools) and the Capital Projects Fund (roads, bridges and job creation).
