SCRATCH YOUR WAY TO VICTORY: WASHINGTON’S LOTTERY DEBUTS NEW GAMES

Three new Scratch games totaling more than $15 million in prizes have been added to the lineup

Olympia, WA (Sept. 14, 2020) – Washington’s Lottery today announced the introduction of three new Scratch games with more than $15 million in prizes. Starting today, players can visit their favorite lottery retailer to find these new games:

  • 777
    • $1 per ticket with a top prize of $7,000. The more “sevens” you unveil, the more you win.
  • Sir Cash-A-Lot
    • $1 per ticket with a top prize of $5,000. Scratch a shield symbol and  win double your prize.
  • Plus the Money!
    • $10 per ticket with a top prize of $250,000 and more than $14 million in cash prizes. Reveal special symbols to win 5X or 10X your prize..

Washington’s Lottery offers Scratch games priced between $1 and $30, each with varying prize amounts. The number of actual prizes available in a game may vary based on the number of tickets printed, tested, distributed, sold, and number of prizes claimed. There are currently 30 Scratch games in rotation.

Once a player wins, they have 180 days from the drawing date to claim their prize for a draw game ticket. If the player won with a Scratch ticket, they have 180 days from the last day of ticket sales to claim their prize. Scratch game closing procedures will be initiated when all top prizes have been claimed. Scratch game closing procedures may be initiated for documented business reasons. These games may have prizes unclaimed, including top prizes. During closing, games may be sold even after all top prizes have been claimed and/or non-winning second chance promotional drawings have expired. Claims are subject to applicable laws, rules, procedures and final decisions of the Executive Director.

While winning tickets worth $601 or more are typically claimed at a Lottery regional office, Washington’s Lottery is encouraging winners with prizes up to $100,000 to mail in their tickets to claim their prize. Winners with tickets for $100,000 or more are instructed to call Lottery Headquarters to schedule an appointment to make a safe and secure in-person claim. This change is in response to the current COVID-19 public health crisis, to enable social distancing, and support Washington's “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” directive.
