The Scratchers are Here! The Scratchers are Here!

You want ‘em. We’ve got ‘em! DC Scratchers are back in a big bold way starting with the 2015 ticket. This $10 game features over $1.75 MILLION in total prizes and TWO $100,000 top prizes. This is just the first in a series of tickets scheduled to hit the shelves of your favorite DC Lottery retailer this month! Look for four more games—$1 Find the 9’s, $2 Lucky Lines, $5 Maximum Jackpot, and $5 Cash Machine—starting February 11.

A BIG THANK YOU to our players for your enthusiasm about the return of the DC Scratchers. We’re delighted that you enjoy the games and their exciting prizes. We want nothing more than to continue to bring you the games you want to play and win.

If you thought the season for giving was over, have I got a gift for you! Starting February 15, try your chance at winning $1,000 a day FOR LIFE with the $2 Lucky for Life game. $1,000 a day FOR LIFE is the top prize and $25,000 a year FOR LIFE is the second prize. This game asks players to choose five out of 48 numbers, plus one number out of 18 for the ‘lucky’ ball to win this twice-weekly multi-state lottery game.

We hope you will join us at Union Station on February 26 and help us celebrate the launch of Lucky for Life. This winning experience will highlight the new game, feature onsite promotions, and for every $10 Lucky for Life purchase, you will receive one entry into the always exciting Money Machine for the chance to win $5,000! We’ll have TWO Money Machine opportunities for this event! Check our Promotions page and your Players Club email for more details. Not a Players Club member? Join today!

DC Fast Play? Congratulations! With prize payouts of over 80% with select games like DC Jackpot, DC Fast Play really is your quickest way to win. This month, we’re adding more winning opportunities to this fast-growing lineup! Look for $5 Trump High and $2 $2,000 Poker coming soon.

How many times have you said “… unless I win the lottery”? Have a chuckle at our new commercials with that hopeful phrase brought to life. Turn wishful thinking into action and be a part of the social media conversation on Facebook and Twitter later this month.

While you’re channel surfing, have a look at some of our Real Winners. They’re people just like you who have won PRIZES OF ALL SIZES with the DC Lottery. Real people, real wins, and real stories to share. We hope you enjoy them and we look forward to seeing you in the winners circle.

Going to the Verizon Center? Check out our Money Machine nights and your chance to win up to $10,000! One Money Machine entry with each onsite purchase of $10 of your favorite DC Lottery games. See the schedule for more information.
