dc - soul train lottery*They just made throwing our money away more fun with the latest D.C. Lottery addition, the New Soul Train Scratcher.

“The D.C. Lottery is proud to be the first lottery in the country to bring the energy, impact, and history associated with the music of Soul Train to our players in the form of this exciting scratcher ticket,” said Buddy Roogow, executive director of the D.C. Lottery.

Certainly they’re glad about it because they think they’ve figured out how to make poor Black people spend more of their money.

The new scratcher starts in at $5 a pop but with the possibility of a $50,000 prize.

The spotlight activity for this new instant game is a “Soul Train Day” at Union Station on Wednesday, February 13, hosted in partnership with Tom Joyner and Majic/WMMJ-FM and featuring a Soul Train Line Dance contest and hourly Scramble Board Contests. Prizes include train tickets, basketball game tickets, and gift cards to B. Smith’s Restaurant in Union Station.
