Saints Nation: Teaming up with the Lottery

As recently reported, the Saints are the next team to enter into an agreement with the state lottery corporation. The Louisiana Lottery will now have Saints-themed scratch-off tickets starting September 8. As a twist on the traditional cash prizes, lottery players will have the option to enter losing tickets into a second chance drawing to win VIP access to Saints events. We all know Louisiana can use the money, and by law, 35% of lottery ticket sales go to the state treasury department. I'm just wondering what kind of cut the Saints organization will get for the scratch off sales.
