The Arizona Lottery is launching a new scratch-off ticket on Tuesday, September 2, and, with a top prize of $2.5 million, the "$185 Million Cash Explosion" boasts the largest prize the lottery has ever offered for an instant win game.

Tickets will cost $20 and the game will have six $2.5 million top prizes up for grabs. The six winners will be able to choose to take their cash in annuity payments over 30 years or walk away with a lump sum payment of $1.25 million, before taxes. The game will also offer three $100,000 second place prizes and 15 $50,000 third place prizes.

An Arizona Lottery spokesperson said: "Keeping Lottery players happy is essential, that's why we are always looking for games that offer new and different top prizes."
