Upcoming Prizes

Livin’ Lucky with Luke Combs

Don’t forget: A nonwinning Livin’ Lucky with Luke Combs Scratcher is eligible for entry into eXTRA Chances! You’ll need to enter the ticket into eXTRA Chances separately. Entering the Scratcher into the Livin’ Lucky with Luke Combs Promotion does not automatically enter the ticket into eXTRA Chances. Each nonwinning Livin’ Lucky with Luke Combs Scratcher entered into eXTRA Chances is worth five (5) eXTRA Chances entries.

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 drawing.

What are second-chance drawings?

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

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

The Lottery changes the prizes for the eXTRA Chances drawings each month. Check them out every month to see what you could win. 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 an eXTRA Chances drawing and get a second chance to win — but you must have the nonwinning ticket in your possession to enter.

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

How can you enter eXTRA Chances?

You can enter in two ways:

  • Mail in your nonwinning ticket to the Virginia Lottery.
  • Enter online with your nonwinning ticket. You can even download the Lottery's mobile app to enter the drawing.

The Lottery values K-12 public education

Since 1999, all Virginia Lottery profits have gone to K-12 public schools in Virginia. In Fiscal Year 2022, the Lottery generated more than $779 million for K-12 public schools in Virginia. Every time you play a Virginia Lottery game, you're playing a role in helping kids have a brighter future.
