* Light reflecting off the ticket. 
* A smudged or badly printed barcode. 
* Torn or damaged ticket. 
* Over-scratched ticket. 
* Dirty camera lens. 
* Older camera with low resolution. 
* The 2nd Chance code was previously scanned and confirmed.

For 2nd Chance scans, you’ll get a “success” message. You can also go to “My Submissions” to see a record of your successful 2nd Chance submissions. If the submission record is there, you can be assured that it is in the system.

You can manually enter the 2nd Chance code into your account with the app. Just sign into your 2nd Chance account and click on the “Enter Manually” button at the top of the scanning window.

If your Check-A-Ticket or 2nd Chance code scan is not successful, you will get an appropriate error message.
