Update: As of 26th December 2014 the Monopoly Millionaires' Club game has been suspended until further notice. Please check back for further updates.
The new Monopoly Millionaires' Club lottery game was launched on October 19th 2014 and has jackpots of up to $25 million. The game is an exciting new multi-state lottery game designed to create multiple millionaires in one draw. Monopoly Millionaires' Club lottery jackpots start at $15 million and rise to $25 million. Once the main jackpot is won, approximately ten additional $1 million prizes are won in a second drawing.
Monopoly Millionaires' Club draws take place every Friday and tickets cost $5. Like the Mega Millions and Hot Lotto multi-state lotteries, Monopoly Millionaires' Club players need to match five numbers from 1-52 as well as matching a randomly generated sixth number, or 'quick-pick', from 1-28. However, the numbers 1-28 are also represented by Monopoly board game properties. Each ticket also carries a unique ‘Millionaire Club number' that gives players the chance to win one of 10 additional prizes if they fail to win the main jackpot.
Like most of the other multi-state lotteries, winners of the Monopoly Millionaires' Club jackpot can opt for an annuity payment or take a cash option. However, winners of the $1 million prize can take a straight-up cash payment.
In spring 2015, a Monopoly Millionaires' Club TV show will be aired live from studios in Las Vegas. To be in with a chance of becoming a contestant on the show, players need to collect all the properties in a color group just like in the classic Monopoly board game. Once on the game show, contestants will form a studio audience playing Monopoly style games for additional cash prizes.
Over half of the 43 states that currently participate in the Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries haven taken up Monopoly Millionaires' Club, with more due to sign up in 2015.
The Monopoly game brand has been successful in over 170 countries across the globe and is valued at almost $5 billion. Watch out for the national TV ad campaign that will be coming your way in the coming months.
