The lockout couldn’t stop the Ravens Cash Fantasy.

The Ravens and Maryland Lottery re-launched the most successful $5 scratch-off in Maryland Lottery history Sunday afternoon before the team’s practice at M&T Bank Stadium.

Tickets were exclusively pre-sold to fans that attended the practice and will go on sale statewide starting Monday.

It’s the third straight year of the partnership and it’s one of the few lottery-NFL partnerships that were able to present a 2011 ticket. Others weren’t able to pull it off in time.

“We were able to get it done because the lottery was so cooperative with us,” Ravens President Dick Cass said. “We’re really delighted. The Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off ticket is sold throughout the state and it’s an opportunity for us to brand the Ravens as Maryland’s team.

“It’s really become part of the ritual of our season.”

The Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off completely sold out last year.

This season, it features more than $11.2 million in instant cash prizes, including six chances to win $250,000.

And of course there are the unique experiential prizes, such as season tickets for life (two club tickets and a parking pass for 20 years), an away trip with the team, and luxury skybox tickets.

This year new prizes include $1 million in cash, a “Ravens Fan Cave,” a hospitality tent for 30 people, autographed helmets and more.

“I think people would have to agree that maybe the best opportunity or experiential prize available is seats for life,” Maryland Lottery Director Stephen Martino said. “I think for true fans of the Ravens and players at large, that’s as good as it gets.”
