So what is Play It Again? It's a second chance drawing program that allows players to enter their eligible non-winning scratch tickets online for a chance to win cash and prizes. To participate in Play It Again, you must be a member of the free Players Club. Not a Players Club member? Join now at Players Club Sign-up. To participate, log-in to the Players Club website as you normally would and click on the "Play It Again" button on the left side menu. That takes you to the Play It Again homepage which features ticket art for all current eligible games. Select the ticket art for the non-winning tickets you want to enter. When you arrive at the ticket submission page, it should show your specific contact information along with entry boxes in which to enter ticket information from your non-winning tickets. The numbers you will be entering from the front and back of your tickets are each composed of 13 digits; be sure you enter ALL 13 digits for each number. Then just click submit and your ticket is entered. Once your non-winning ticket is in the system, you don't even have to keep it! Players may enter up to 40 tickets per day. Get your non-winning scratch tickets back in the game with Play It Again!
AND CONGRATULATIONS to the five winners from our first Play It Again mini-drawing held on July 1. Ellie Mathison, Laurie Picard, Jim Chilson, Chris Cunningham and Todd Reistroffer each won $100 in $10K Run scratch tickets. Didn't win in this first drawing? There's another one coming up in August!

How Many Ways Can You Claim a Prize?
Depending on the amount of your win, there are a variety of ways you can claim your scratch ticket or lotto prize. Here's an easy way to tell what method you should use. Read our Claim a Prize Guide.
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.
