Enjoy double the fun with eXTRA Chances Scratchers
If you see an eXTRA Chances logo on the front of a non-winning Scratcher, you have a shot at a second chance to win if you enter the ticket into the Lottery's eXTRA Chances drawing.
What are second-chance drawings?
Second-chance drawings provide you the opportunity to receive added value for your ticket purchase by allowing you to enter into a specific promotion. Second-chance promotions are separate from eXTRA Chances. These are available intermittently and follow official rules unique to each individual promotion. Some second-chance promotions require you to keep your ticket entry and/or entry form in order to claim a prize. Please refer to the official rules for specific requirements.
What can you win if you enter non-winning eXTRA Chances Scratcher tickets in the drawing?
The Lottery changes the prizes for the eXTRA Chances drawings each month. Check them out every month to see what you could win. Here are some examples of possible prizes.
- A tropical vacation
- Concert tickets
- Home-improvement gift cards
How do eXTRA Chance Scratcher games work?
First, you can buy a Scratcher at your local Lottery retailer — find one near you using our Find a Retailer tool. Then scratch off the play area to see if you win a prize playing the game.
Didn't win? If your ticket has the eXTRA Chances logo on the front, you can enter it into an eXTRA Chances drawing and get a second shot at winning — but you must have the non-winning ticket in your possession to enter.
Some games have specific 2nd Chance drawings; those tickets can be entered into those drawings for a specific prize.
How can you enter the eXTRA Chances drawing?
You can enter in two ways:
- Mail in your non-winning ticket to the Virginia Lottery.
- Enter online with your non-winning ticket. You can even download the Lottery's mobile app to enter the drawing.

Every time you play the Virginia Lottery, kids across the commonwealth are the real winners. All Lottery profits go to the K-12 public schools in Virginia. In Fiscal Year 2020, the Lottery generated $595 million for K-12 public schools.
