Playing for Prizes
I am not able to enter my non-winning Hold ‘Em Poker Scratcher. When I click on Play for Prizes, I am asked to log in. Why is this happening?
To play the game for prizes, you need a MyGameRoom account. To open an account, go to valottery.com to sign up.
Where do I find the numbers that I am supposed to enter?
The BONUS GAME ONLINE CODE is the 6-digit alpha numeric code found under the latex in the top right corner on the front of the Scratcher. The Promotion Entry Number is the 14-digit number found on the back of the Scratcher.
I received a message that says my non-winning Scratcher has already been entered. How can that be if I have the Scratcher in my possession, and what should I do?
First, check your list of previously submitted entries to verify that the non-winning Scratcher has not been already entered. If it has not, please contact the Lottery by filling out the email form on our Contact Us page. Include all applicable numbers that you tried to enter, and the Virginia Lottery will investigate.
How many times can I play a day?
You can enter up to 25 eligible, non-winning Hold ‘Em Poker Scratchers per day for this promotion.
I have Scratchers, but I can't remember whether I have entered them into the drawing. How can I see which Scratchers have been entered?
Each time you submit a non-winning Hold ‘Em Poker Scratcher, a record of the entry appears on the Play for Prizes page on valottery.com/holdempoker. All of your entries are in that list, so you may cross-reference that list with the Scratchers you are holding.
May I dispose of my non-winning Hold ‘Em Poker Scratchers after I have entered them?
Yes, you may! For this promotion, you do not need to keep your non-winning Scratchers once you have successfully submitted them.
Do I need to be a Virginia resident to enter this Virginia Lottery promotion?
No. There are no restrictions for out-of-state players. Anyone who is eligible to purchase Virginia Lottery Scratchers is eligible to participate in drawings for this promotion.
