New lottery scratch game features Idaho universities

The Idaho Lottery has unveiled a new scratch game featuring the University of Idaho, Idaho State University, and Boise State.

School mascots Joe Vandal, Benny the Bengal, and Buster Bronco on Monday helped to unveil the $5 tickets which go on sale in three weeks.

Idaho Lottery officials say the new scratch game benefits Idaho’s Permanent Building Fund, while also promoting the spirit of in-state rivalries.

Top prize for the new scratch game is $5,000. Non-winning UofI and ISU tickets can be turned in for a chance to win football season tickets for either team, while non-winning BSU tickets can be entered into a drawing for two tickets to see the Broncos play at Oklahoma State September 15th.

Non-winning tickets must be submitted by August 19th. (KTVB)
