Promotion FAQs

Which tickets are eligible to be entered in the promotion?

Both winning and nowinning Iowa Lottery Powerball with Double Play tickets purchased on or after Sunday, February 18, 2024 are eligible for entry in this promotion. The Double Play must have been purchased on the ticket. No other Iowa Lottery tickets are eligible for entry in this promotion. Players will select the race date and package of their choice when they enter the promotion.

If I've bought a Powerball with Double Play ticket in Iowa, does that mean I'm automatically entered in the promotion?

No. You need to log in to your VIP Club account and enter the Powerball with Double Play ticket into the promotion to have a chance to win.

Can I enter winning Powerball with Double Play tickets in the promotion?

Yes, winning and nonwinning Powerball with Double Play tickets are eligible to be entered.

If my ticket has multiple plays on it, will that count as more than one entry into the promotion?

No. Each ticket entered counts as one entry in the Iowa Lottery promotion drawing of the player's choice, regardless of the number of plays on it, or the number of Powerball Double Play drawings for which the ticket is eligible.

Do I need to keep my Powerball with Double Play ticket after I enter it?

No, you do not have to keep your ticket to be eligible to win in the promotion. However, be sure to check all of your Powerball tickets to see if they've won a prize in the Monday, Wednesday or Saturday Powerball and Powerball Double Play drawings for which you bought them, as you will need your ticket to claim any Powerball drawing prize you may have one.

How do I become eligible to enter tickets in this promotion?

To enter, individuals must be a current member or join the Iowa Lottery VIP Club. Members will log into their VIP Club account, either at or through LotteryPlus mobile app. If you have the app, you can simply scan a Powerball with Double Play ticket to enter.

How are winners notified if they have won?

I’m getting an error that my ticket number is not valid. What should I do?

There are a few things we ask people to do when this occurs:

  • Be sure the Powerball with Double Play ticket was purchased on or after February 18, 2024.
  • Be sure the ticket has YES for the Double Play option.
  • Double-check the numbers you are entering to be sure they are correct and that you have all the boxes filled in.
  • If you are not sure which numbers to enter, check the "lotto ticket example" link on the "Enter Drawings" page within the VIP Club.

How often can I enter this promotion?

You can make 40 attempts to enter tickets in a promotion(s) per day. After midnight your account will reset, and you can enter more tickets at that time.
