"We are thrilled to offer this unique game experience to lottery players," Virginia Lottery executive director Paula I. Otto said. "In addition, we look forward to reaching some new potential customers through the power of the Redskins brand.

"This game is a win-win for the Virginia Lottery and the Washington Redskins, as we expect this ticket to generate millions in profits for public schools."

Added Redskins chief operating officer Mitch Gershman: "This is an exciting partnership that allows Redskins fans the unique opportunity to win once-in-a-lifetime Redskins experiences, game tickets and other team-related prizes for the first time ever.

"We're proud to be able to contribute to the creation of new revenue for Virginia's public schools through a fun ticket like Redskins Mania."

The scratch ticket, one of the first to be launched by a state lottery and an NFL team, offers football and lottery fans alike the chance to instantly win from $20 to $1 million by scratching to win.

The "Redskins Mania" ticket will also include a second chance drawing feature in which players can enter non-winning tickets at www.valottery.com for the chance to win Redskins VIP experiences.

Here are some VIP experiences available as part of Redskins Mania:

  • Pairs of Redskins Premium Club tickets for 20 years at FedExField
  • VIP away game travel with the team to Dallas, on the team plane and team bus, as the Redskins take on the Cowboys in Dallas on Nov. 22, 2009

The odds of winning $1 million are 1 in 1,305,600. The odds of winning any cash prize are 1 in 2.78.

Odds of winning the Redskins second-chance prizes are based on the number of entries.

The chances of winning a prize through the Redskins Mania ticket are in no way related to the team's performance on the field.
