[March 19, 2010]  ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos and the Colorado Lottery have announced an instant ticket game that includes a chance to win 2010 season tickets.

RestaurantThe lottery says the game, which started Monday, could generate $1 million for parks, trails and wildlife protection across the state. The team wouldn't reveal how much it could take in through the deal.

The lottery hopes to sell 1.8 million of the $5 tickets. If all tickets are sold, the game will gross $9 million and return $6.3 million in prizes, including top payouts of $100,000. The game also features second-chance drawings for 50 pairs of 2010 season tickets.

The Broncos are the 16th team to take advantage of a new rule approved by NFL owners to allow teams to partner with local lotteries.
