Massachusetts Lottery to Launch $30 Tickets

The Massachusetts Lottery will launch a new instant ticket next month and at $30 a play it will be their most expensive ticket to date.

The "World Class Millions" game will offer a top prize of $15 million and pay out over $600 million in prizes.

Massachusetts Lottery Executive Director, Beth Bresnahan, believes many players prefer to take a chance on the more costly games because the payouts are so high. The new game's prize payout is 80.7%.

Thirteen other states already have $30 tickets and the New Hampshire Lottery launched a $25 ticket earlier this month; so high-priced games are nothing new and the Florida Lottery's two $25 games have proved to be their best-sellers.
