The US National Football League's permission for its teams to negotiate scratchcard lottery betting deals with individual state lotteries saw another agreement signed this week, with the Washington Seahawks following the lead of other top teams such as the Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots, Washington Redskins, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints and the New York Giants.
The team's deal with the Washington Lottery will see the introduction of Seahawks Winning Play Scratch tickets sold inside Qwest Field during home games and featuring a top prize of $50,000.
Players are also being given the chance to win a trip for two valued at $12,000 including airfare, accommodation and tickets to next year's Super Bowl and Pro Bowl in Miami.
"The new Seahawks Winning Play Scratch ticket gives players another way to support their team throughout the season," said Christopher Liu, Director for the Washington Lottery. "In addition, ticket proceeds help pay down the debt on Qwest Field and Event Center."
Ron Jenkins, Vice-President Of Corporate Partnerships for the Seattle Seahawks said: "We are proud to extend our partnership with the Washington Lottery into a fun co-branded game for fans."
