What are Second Chance Drawings?
Registered users can enter their eligible non-winning Scratch-it℠ tickets into 2nd Chance drawings for a chance to win the last top prize in that game.
How do 2nd Chance Drawings work?
After successfully registering and logging in, you can view every Scratch-it game that is eligible for a 2nd Chance Drawing and the number of tickets submitted (which determines the odds of winning). To enter the drawings you enter codes printed on your non-winning Scratch-it. Drawings will be held as determined by the Lottery.
Can I mail in my Scratch-it tickets to the Lottery and have them enter me for the Second Chance drawings?
All Second Chance entries must be submitted online by the player. The Lottery cannot enter on a player's behalf.
Can I purchase Lottery products online?
Scratch-it tickets and other Oregon Lottery ®products cannot be purchased online. All purchases for lottery products must take place at an authorized lottery retailer.
Why is the Oregon Lottery offering 2nd Chance Scratch-it Drawings?
The Lottery is always looking for ways to engage players and add value to their purchase of Lottery products. With 2nd Chance drawings, the Lottery is giving players another reason to play Scratch-its and a "2nd Chance" to win. 2nd Chance Drawings have been offered by the Lottery in the past and this effort is consistent with past promotional efforts.

When I try to submit entries, I get transferred back to the LOGIN page. Why is this happening?
Some firewalls or security settings on your PC may prevent you from logging in successfully. For example, your PC setting must be enabled to receive cookies.

I tried to submit an entry and got a message that the ticket has already been entered. How can that be if I have the ticket in my hand, and what should I do?
As to how it can happen, occasionally a player will inadvertently make a typing mistake when submitting their entry, and won't double-check to make sure the number they entered is the same as the number on their ticket. All tickets will be automatically verified upon entry to confirm they are valid ticket entries. As to what to do: First, check your previously submitted entries. The "MY ENTRIES" link can be located on the right hand side of the main landing page. Check this list to make sure that the ticket has not already been entered by you. If it is not on your list of entries, use the Contact Us page email to notify us as soon as possible. Please include any ticket number for which you received the "already been entered" message.
I made a typing mistake when I submitted my entry. How do I check for and correct entry errors?
All entries that you submit will be automatically verified upon entry. If you make a mistake while typing and enter an invalid entry, you will receive a message stating "The entry you submitted is not recognized as a qualified entry. Please check the numbers and try again." Also, check the "MY ENTRIES" link which can be located on the right hand side of the main landing page. Please verify that the ticket hasn't already been entered by you.
Why are my age and identity verified for this web site?
The Lottery is required by law to confirm all applicants are age 18 or older. The information you provide helps us confirm your identity and age. Confirmation may not be possible if you have recently moved or recently reached the age of 18, since databases may take up to three months to be updated.

Any entries submitted after the final drawing deadlines are disqualified.
I have tickets that I can't remember whether or not I have entered in the drawing. How can I see what tickets I have entered?
Each time you submit an entry, a record of your entry appears on the page titled "MY ENTRIES." The "MY ENTRIES" link can be located on the right hand side of the main landing page. All of your entries appear on that list for your information and reference, so you can check the list against the tickets you are holding.
How can I be sure that my entry has been submitted?

Can I throw away the tickets after I have entered them into a drawing?
I live out of state. Am I eligible to enter the 2nd Chance Drawings?
Yes. But you must enter your ticket information using a device located within the boundaries of the State of Oregon.
How do I find out if I have been selected as a winner?
The Lottery will notify the winner of a 2nd Chance Drawing by e-mail. The Lottery may also notify the winner by telephone, and if applicable, by mailing a certified letter through the US Postal Service. Please be sure to keep your contact information updated. Winners' names and hometowns are posted on the Second Chance web site following the drawing.
How long do I have to claim my prize?
A winner of a 2nd Chance Drawing has 60 calendar days from the date of the e-mail notification in which to claim the prize, unless otherwise specified in the special Terms and Conditions for a particular 2nd Chance Drawing.
What happens if I don't claim my prize within the time limit?
If the Lottery determines that a winner and any alternate winners of a 2nd Chance Drawing are ineligible or fail to claim the prize within the time limits set by the Lottery, or if the entry and any alternate winning entries selected for that drawing are invalid, then the 2nd Chance prize is forfeited by the winner and becomes an unclaimed prize. An unclaimed prize remains the property of the Lottery Commission to be allocated to the benefit of the public purpose.

Once drawing winners are selected, the Winners will be posted in the Drawings Info tab located in the menu at the top of the page.
