EquiLottery Games and Major League Baseball are launching a new lottery game that lets players purchase tickets based on live MLB games. Baseball Bucks will feature brand marks of MLB and all 30 clubs as part of the multi-year deal. MLB and EquiLottery will also cooperate on upcoming lottery games based on live baseball, in addition with those that propose jackpots similar to Powerball or Mega Millions, corresponding to a press release. Baseball Bucks marks the first time a U.S. professional sports league has entered the lottery draw game category.
Players matching 10 winning teams will win the significant prize, however smaller prizes will also be on offer to those who match between seven and nine winning teams.
The multi-year agreement also states that the Baseball Bucks game will feature the official logos of MLB and its 30 franchises.
