Coming August 2016: Scratch meets Lotto all in one game!

Anticipating the draw and the chance to win big jackpots is why many people play lotto. Knowing within seconds of buying the ticket if they're a winner is what draws players to scratch ticket games. What if you could have the thrill of both experiences on a single ticket? Beginning next month, you can when Dakota Cash with EZ Match goes on sale. Details on the Dakota Cash game page.


What and where were the big scratch ticket wins in June?


Good for Fun, Fun for Good
