Illinois Lottery Releases New MS Ticket, Dash! For Cash
Date:4/6/2009

ident, Lynda Chott. "The proceeds from this Lottery ticket will fund MS research projects in Illinois and we are looking forward to funding crucial research through the success of this new ticket."

Treatment for multiple sclerosis is expensive and a significant portion of a family's income is consumed by care giving, hospital and physicians costs, medication, long-term care, assistive devices and equipment. The average treatment cost for someone living with MS is $69,118 annually.

The Illinois General Assembly will continue to appropriate proceeds from "Dash! For Cash" ticket sales to the Department of Public Health and the National MS Society, which in turn, will award grants to organizations conducting MS research in Illinois. All grants funded by the ticket's revenue have and will continue to be reviewed and approved by the National MS Society's Research Programs Advisory Committee, a panel that includes 75 leading scientists, physicians and other professionals from virtually every field related to MS.

"Dash! For Cash" is available at various Illinois Lottery retailer locations across the state. Each ticket costs $2 and offers four top prizes of $20,000. The odds for this ticket are 1 in 4.15 and give players two ways to play by matching YOUR NUMBERS to either WINNING NUMBER or get a RUNNER to win a prize automatically.

For more information regarding "Dash! For Cash," please visit the Illinois Lottery Web site at www.illinoislottery.com or for more information regarding multiple sclerosis, visit www.MSIllinois.org or www.gatewayMSsociety.org.
