Each code you submit is eligible for and automatically included in the Scratchers Weekly Pool Draw for that week. The number of entries you receive in the weekly pool draw depends on the price of your Scratchers ticket. For example, if you enter a non-winning $10 Scratchers code, you will receive 10 entries, if you enter a non-winning $20 Scratchers code, you will receive 20 entries, etc.. To be eligible for the current week's draw, your Scratchers 2nd Chance code must be submitted online by Saturday at 11:59pm or it will be eligible for the following week's draw. Each submission is good for one weekly draw.

Scratchers 2nd Chance Weekly Pool Draw Prizes:

         Two (2) $25,000 winners

         Five (5) $5,000 winners

         Twenty-five (25) $1,000 winners  

Weekly Draws mean no more waiting for End of Game or Quarterly Pool Draws as they will be discontinued for all new games as of January 2015. You'll now have less waiting time for draw results!

Remember, certain Scratchers tickets may offer additional draws. Make sure to keep an eye out - you could win even more cash and prizes!

To see the codes you have submitted and the drawings you are entered in, go to the "My Submissions" page.
