Entering Tickets

To enter, log into your VIP Club account, either at or through the LotteryPlus mobile app. If you have the app, you can simply scan a ticket to enter. If you're not a member yet, join for FREE at

How long do I have to get my tickets entered?

You can enter the Holiday Cash Bash promotion from 10 a.m. October 17, 2022, until 9:59 a.m. on January 10, 2023.

Do I have to choose a category for my entry before submitting the ticket?

No, the ticket will be entered in the corresponding category for that ticket's price.

I can't find the numbers I need to enter from the front of the ticket. Can you help?

Be sure to scratch off all of the scratch material in the play area on the front of the ticket to uncover the 10-digit number you need. Most times the number is located at the bottom of the play area, but sometimes it may run sideways. If you're having trouble finding the code on a particular ticket, contact us and we'll be glad to help.

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 ticket is not a winner. If the ticket is a winner, it will come up as invalid.
  • 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 "scratch 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.
