BOSTON, Mass. (WPRI) — The Massachusetts Lottery is hoping you’ll be willing to up the ante to win big.

Starting next month, the lottery is selling an instant win scratch ticket that costs $30.

“World Class Millions” is the highest-priced scratch ticket in the state lottery’s history. The top jackpot is $15 million. There will also be five Second Chance Drawings.

Tickets will be released to stores April 22.

Officials for the lottery say they offer the highest prize payout in the country, at 72 cents on the dollar.

The Massachusetts Lottery was also the first lottery in the United States to offer an instant win ticket, in May 1974.
