January Twitter Contest

High 5sThe January Twitter Contest will be something to high-five about! Up for grabs in our next contest will be free scratch tickets in the new "High 5s" game. This new $1 scratch game debuts Jan. 5, so be sure and look for it soon at your favorite Iowa Lottery retailer.

Our next Twitter contest is Jan. 20. Three lucky winners in that day's contest will each receive $20 in High 5s scratch tickets. The contest will start at 2 p.m., so mark your calendar!

High 5s happens to be our latest scratch game that benefits the Iowa Veterans Trust Fund. Proceeds from the sale of tickets in this game help our state's veterans and their families.

Once the Twitter contest starts at 2 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 20, we'll pose our question on Twitter and you'll have 15 minutes to enter

Reply with your answer within the 15-minute time limit and you'll be entered in the contest! No late entries will be accepted. (Be sure to reply to @ialottery on Twitter. Don't direct message us, as direct messages aren't eligible for entry.) Just follow us on Twitter - it's free to create an account if you don't already have one. Then give us the correct answer to our super-easy contest question and you'll be entered for a chance to win one of the three ticket prize packs.

We'll select the three winners in our contest, then post the winners list on our website. We'll also contact the winners by direct message on Twitter, so be sure and check your Twitter messages following the contest. And we'll of course announce the winners on Twitter, too!

If you win, you'll need to contact us with your name, date of birth and mailing address so we can send out your tickets. Winners will have until 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 27, to contact us with their information.
