       Winning Takes No Vacation!

It’s August in the District. When many are kicking back and cooling off. At the DC Lottery, we’re anything but—with sizzling winning opportunities that never take a break.

PRIZE SQUAD!” If you’ve come out to any of the Prize Squad events, you’re familiar with this response, the bells, the whistles, the excitement and fun that accompany every Prize Squad mission. If you’ve yet to join us for a Prize Squad mission, it’s just one of our promotions aimed at making this your winning summer with the DC Lottery. Through August 29, we’re visiting a DC Lottery store in each ward of the District and rewarding loyal players with cash prizes up to $5,000. No special contest to enter, no forms to fill out. Just meet us at the designated Prize Squad spot on the specified date and time, play your favorite DC Lottery games, and see if you’re a winner! Players, your mission is possible. DC Lottery Prize Squad: WILL WE FIND YOU? 

Your backyard grill isn’t the only thing smoking this summer. Starting August 10, check out Smokin’ Hot Dice, the newest DC Fast Play game hitting stores August 10. You may think you know this game, but you have no idea. Smokin’ Hot Dice is back with a twist. This game features a rolling jackpot that starts at $500 and climbs until somebody wins! Just $1 to play and you can win up to five times on a single ticket. Try your hand with the new Smokin’ Hot Dice with the rolling jackpot.

Also new to the DC Fast Play line is the $5 Cash Kickoff. This game hits the field just in time for some preseason fun with prizes ranging from $5 up to $50,000 and four chances to win on a single ticket. If your team’s score is higher than ‘theirs,’ YOU win! Get in the game with $5 Cash Kickoff.

Feeling lucky? DC 3 and DC 4 players should look for the Lucky Sum promotion this month for more ways to win. Spend an extra $.50or $1 with your DC 3 or DC 4 play and if the sum of your numbers matches the sum of the numbers drawn, YOU WIN!

Last month, we congratulated our first $100,000 top prize winners with the Monopoly and Caesars DC Scratchers. There’s still time to get yours as there are plenty of cash prizes available on both tickets including another $100,000 top prize. Both tickets also feature Second Chance opportunities for an additional $25,000 in winnings!
