Want to know if you have a winning scratch ticket?

Our tickets feature a Failsafe barcode under the latex coating below the play area. Carefully scratch off the latex to reveal that barcode. Then take your ticket to your favorite lottery retailer and scan the barcode yourself in the ticket checker. You'll find out instantly if you're a winner! Winning tickets worth $100 or less can be presented to any lottery retailer for payment. Winning tickets of $101 or more must be redeemed at one of our validation centers in Pierre, Rapid City or Sioux Falls.
