Broncos, Bengals, and Vandals – Oh My! Lottery Unveils Historical New Scratch Game that Features Top Public University Mascots

 

 

BOISE, Idaho – The Idaho Lottery announced three new Scratch Games today for fans of college football in the state of Idaho. The announcement came during a “media day” unveiling ceremony after the filming of the television commercial for the new games in Boise. Broncos-Bengals-Vandals is a new commemorative series of $5 Scratch Games from the Idaho Lottery featuring the three mascots from Boise State University, Idaho State University, and the University of Idaho. The games feature a total of twenty top prizes of $5,000 each.

 

The opportunity to film the television commercial made for a unique moment in collegiate history in Idaho. For the first time ever among Idaho’s top collegiate public universities, all three mascots – Buster Bronco, Benny the Bengal, and Joe Vandal all appeared together today for the filming of the Lottery advertising spot. All three assisted with the unveiling of the new game today.

 

“The Idaho Lottery was created, in part, to benefit the State’s Permanent Building Fund – places like our university facilities.  Supporting collegiate athletics and their facilities is another way we help to improve the student-athlete and fan experience on our college campuses,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director.  “Today’s introduction of these limited edition, special, commemorative Scratch Games featuring all three schools, is the culmination of collaborative work, over several years, between the Idaho Lottery and each of the three universities.”

 

Tickets for the new games will be available statewide in Idaho Lottery retail locations beginning July 30. All non-winning tickets, regardless of which mascot is on the front, , may be entered via the web at idaholottery.com or through tele-entry at 208-334-4656 for a chance to win a trip for two to see Boise State take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater on September 15. Players may also enter non-winning tickets for a chance to win season football tickets to Idaho State football games or University of Idaho football games. Entries must be submitted by August 19, 2018. For the balance of the season, players may enter their non-winning tickets for a chance to go to Boise State’s Bowl Game.
