The Second Chance Drawing gives players an additional opportunity to win a top prize on their favorite Scratch-its. Players can register for a MyLottery account where they can enter their non-winning Scratch-its using the Oregon Lottery mobile app, or by entering them manually on the Lottery’s website at https://www.oregonlottery.org/my-lottery/second-chance/
Players can see when the Second Chance drawing will take place, how many entries have been registered for each Scratch it. After the drawing winners are notified of their win.
Draw dates for each game are determined by when the specific Scratch-it is pulled from the market.
Players who have winning tickets of $50,000 or more, will need to make an appointment to come to the Oregon Lottery office in Salem. Call 503-540-1000 for assistance. The Lottery also offers a drop box at the Lottery office in Salem. Players can use the drop box to submit prize claims and will receive their winnings in the mail once the claim has been processed.
Lottery officials recommend that you always sign the back of your tickets with each Oregon Lottery game you play, to ensure you can claim any prize you may win. In the event of winning a jackpot, players should consult with a trusted financial planner or similar professional to develop a plan for their winnings.
