Fans of the Black and Gold have the chance to scratch their way to season tickets and cash, now that the Bruins and the Massachusetts State Lottery announced the release of a new Bruins instant game.

"We believe the Boston Bruins game is the perfect icing on our
instant-ticket cake," said treasurer Timothy P. Cahill, chairman of the Massachusetts
State Lottery Commission at the New England Sports Museum. “Once again, a Boston sports franchise has
stepped up to help raise revenue for police officers, fire fighters,
teachers and other essential municipal services.”

The Boston Bruins instant game is set to be available at 7,500 lottery outlets on Tuesday at $2 per ticket. More than $50 million in tickets is expected to be sold, which will raise more than $9.6 million for Massachusetts’ 351 cities and towns.

"We are certainly pleased to be partnering with the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts on this instant ticket, which is set to generate $9.6
million for Massachusetts's cities and towns," said Jeremy Jacobs,
Boston Bruins owner, chairman and CEO. “I would like to personally
thank Treasurer Cahill for his diligence and foresight in bringing this
partnership to life."

Among the many prizes are season tickets for a decade and authentic Bruins gear and collectibles.
