Promotion Specifics:

Ticket serial number exampleOne entry requires the serial numbers and box codes from an eligible, non-winning $1 Jolly Jackpot, $3 Jollier Jackpot, or $5 Jolliest Jackpot ticket. Each Scratch game has a separate entry form, so make sure to select the correct form for the ticket(s) you are entering on the Enter Contests page.

The ticket serial number is located on the back of the ticket above the barcode. The first five digits of the serial number are the Scratch game number. The four-digit box code is located under the latex on the front of the ticket (see example).

Non-winning tickets can be entered at any time, but will only be eligible for the drawing immediately after the entry period when the ticket number was entered.  Tickets may only be entered once.
