Redskins Scratch-Off Unveiled

ASHBURN, Va. -- Want to feel like an NFL free agent? Well, the Virginia Lottery is offering you that chance. If you win their $1 million scratch-off jackpot, it'll almost feel like Dan Snyder signed you in the off-season, and just like an expensive Washington Redskins signing, you won't have to perform on the field.

The Redskins and the Virginia Lottery on Monday unveiled a $20 scratch-off ticket featuring the team's logo, taking advantage of a new NFL rule that allows teams to sign licensing deals with state-sponsored lotteries.

The Redskins went all out for the announcement, displaying their three Super Bowl trophies in a news conference setting usually reserved for big player signings.

The ticket has a top prize of $1 million, and second-chance prizes include season tickets for 20 years and a chance to travel with the team to an away game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The tickets go on sale Aug. 3, shortly after the Redskins open training camp, so start exercising your coin thumb on some good ol' $1 and $2 tickets.
