Submitting entries into Missouri Lottery second-chance promotional drawings is now quicker and easier than ever! With a new process in place, Web entries are now accepted and validated on the spot – with no need for players to hold on to their tickets in the event they are a winner.
To submit a Web entry, My Lottery members simply enter the 14-digit serial number found by the barcode on the back of their ticket and the 12-digit validation number found under the latex on the front of the ticket. Once the entry is accepted, they are then free to discard their Scratchers tickets, confident that the validation method has ensured that only eligible tickets were submitted for entry.
The new process also means that winners from our second-chance promotional drawings will be announced much sooner, because we will no longer need to wait for all winners to send in their tickets for validation before drawing results are deemed official. That means players will see an official winner’s list, including prizes won, the day of each drawing. As a result, winners will also have their prizes fulfilled much faster, too.
The new entry process began with our “Silver Anniversary” promotion, in which players enter their non-winning “Silver Anniversary” Scratchers tickets into a series of monthly drawings. Each month, 25 winners will be drawn to win $1,000 each and move forward to the grand-prize drawing for the chance to win $1 million!
