The combined sales for all MONOPOLY scratch-off games have generated nearly $900 million to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund. Starting July 2, there will be five new MONOPOLY scratch-off games available, ranging in price from $1 to $20.
The Florida Lottery offers approximately 60 scratch-off games at any given time through vending machines or counter displays at more than 13,000 retailers statewide. Scratch-off games are an important part of the Lottery’s portfolio of games, making up approximately 58 percent of ticket sales and generating more than $495 million for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund in fiscal year 2011-12.
