Staff Writer

This Veterans Day, Texas Lottery players can show their support for Texas veterans by purchasing the newest Veterans Cash scratch ticket. The $2 game benefits the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance.
Veterans Cash features six top prizes of $25,000 and more than $6 million in total prizes. The overall odds of winning are one in 4.12 for any prize, including break-even prizes.
Since the first veterans’ themed scratch ticket was launched in 2009, the Texas Lottery has contributed more than $52 million for programs supporting Texas veterans. The Fund for Veterans’ Assistance makes grants available to eligible charitable organizations, local government agencies, and Veterans Service Organizations that provide direct services to Texas veterans and their families. With 1.7 million veterans spread across the state, these programs provide financial assistance, transportation services, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder counseling and housing assistance.
The Texas Lottery first launched the veterans’ themed scratch ticket game on Nov. 9, 2009, following the passage of a bill during the 81st Legislature.
Players interested in finding the game in their area can use the Scratch Ticket and Retailer Locator on the Texas Lottery website.
