The New York Jets, the New Jersey Lottery, State Treasurer and Sports and Exposition Authority Commissioner David Rousseau, Senate President Richard Codey and Jets Executive Vice President of Business Operations Matt Higgins announced Monday the launch of "Jets Football Fantasy" at Quick Food Store, a New Jersey Lottery retailer in West Orange.
This new Jets-themed instant lottery game boasts cash prizes ranging from $5 to $100,000 and five Bonus Zone "Second Chance" Drawings that include such prizes as:
* Jets season tickets for a decade in the team's new stadium.
* The chance to be the Jets' "Owner For A Day," where you will fly on a private jet to watch the Jets take on Tampa.
* A luxury suite for you, 10 of your friends — and former Jets receiver Wayne Chrebet.
New Jersey's own, Chrebet is the primary "ambassador" for this unique instant game. He becomes the first former player in the NFL to take an active, high-profile role in supporting a joint instant lottery venture between a state lottery and a league franchise. In addition to hosting some "Second Chance" Drawing winners at a Jets home game in one of the luxury suites, Chrebet will promote "Jets Football Fantasy" in radio spots and print ads and at appearances throughout the state.
"The Jets and Wayne Chrebet have a special place in the hearts and minds of countless thousands of our state's citizens, " said William Jourdain, New Jersey Lottery's acting executive director. "We're very pleased to be able to work with them to give something back to their fans. While the Jets are creating memorable moments on the field this season, 'Jets Football Fantasy' is certain to create some very memorable moments for fortunate Lottery players as well."
Rousseau also noted that Jets fans aren't the only ones who will win with this new game.
"Every 'Jets Football Fantasy' ticket that a fan purchases makes the difference in the lives of schoolchildren, college students and our state's veterans, just to name a few of the many beneficiaries of Lottery support," he said. "This is one game that, when you play, all of New Jersey wins, and that's a great outcome."
"The 'Jets Football Fantasy' instant game is a fun and exciting way for fans of the team to help support the many worthy programs funded through the New Jersey Lottery while also giving themselves the chance to dream about some really terrific prizes," said Codey. "The $100,000 top prizes are great, and many Lottery players, especially those who love the Jets, will truly enjoy some of the very special 'Second Chance Drawing' prizes."
" With chances to win big money prizes and Jets experiences not offered anywhere else, we think 'Jets Football Fantasy' has it all," said Higgins. "We're extremely pleased that Wayne Chrebet will be helping spread the word about this instant ticket and the many unique 'Second Chance' prizes that are being offered."
