Upcoming Prizes

Now through October 1, a nonwinning Scratcher from the Hot 7s family of games is worth 7X the eXTRA Chances entries!

The Lottery is giving you the chance to turn up the heat on your eXTRA Chances entries. If you enter a nonwinning Hot 7s Scratcher into eXTRA Chances through October 1, you’ll get 7X the eXTRA Chances entries for the entered ticket! There are four Scratchers in the Hot 7s family.

Enjoy double the fun with eXTRA Chances Scratchers

If you see an eXTRA Chances logo on the front of a nonwinning Scratcher, you have another chance to win if you enter the ticket into the Lottery's eXTRA Chances promotion.

What are 2nd Chance promotions?

2nd Chance promotions provide you the opportunity to receive added value for your ticket purchase by allowing you to enter a specific promotion. 2nd Chance promotions are separate from eXTRA Chances and are available intermittently and follow official rules unique to each individual promotion. Some 2nd Chance promotions require you to keep your ticket entry and/or entry form in order to claim a prize. Please refer to the promotion’s official rules for specific requirements.

What could you win if you enter nonwinning eXTRA Chances Scratchers into eXTRA Chances?

The Lottery changes the prize for the eXTRA Chances each month. Here are some examples of possible prizes.

  • A tropical vacation
  • Concert tickets
  • Home-improvement gift cards

How do eXTRA Chance Scratchers work?

First, you can buy a Scratcher at your local Lottery retailer — find one near you using our Find a Retailer tool. Then scratch off the play area to see if you win a prize playing the game.

Didn't win? If your ticket has the eXTRA Chances logo on the front, you can enter it into eXTRA Chances and get another chance to win — but you must have the nonwinning ticket in your possession to enter.

Some games have a specific 2nd Chance promotion; those tickets can be entered into the associated promotion for a chance to win a specific prize.

How can you enter eXTRA Chances?

Enter your nonwinning ticket with the eXTRA Chances logo via the Virginia Lottery app or
