State offices, including the Missouri Lottery, will be closed Friday in observance of the Christmas holiday. We will re-open for regular business Monday so that you can come claim all of those winning tickets.
We believe Scratchers make great gifts. When you give Lottery tickets, you’re Playing It Forward. Not only does your purchase help public education in Missouri, your family and friends will have a chance to win big money.
We have games at several price points – win up to $1,000 on the $1 ticket, “Frosty Fun.” The $5 game, “Seasons Greetings,” offers a chance to win up to $100,000. We have a $20 game this year, “Happy Holidays,” which features a unique play style and a chance to win $500,000.
All of the holiday Scratchers are eligible for entry in the “Second Chance of a Lifetime – Holiday Chill Out” promotion. We have one more drawing in January, so any non-winning tickets can be entered into your My Lottery account for points. For every $10 worth of eligible tickets, you’ll get one entry into the promotion, where you can win a world-class vacation, Missouri staycations or $1,000. You could also win merchandise in a weekly drawing.
Best of all, holiday Scratchers are available at thousands of retail locations statewide, so shopping is easy. Just stop in your favorite Missouri Lottery retail location between now and your holiday party and get your ticket. Happy Holidays!

The Missouri Lottery reminds you that Scratchers are not appropriate for children under 18.
If you wait for the jackpots to get big before you play, we’ve got a treat for you just in time for the holidays. All of the jackpots are growing. Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot is up to $85 million, and Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is $202 million. Consider adding Megaplier and Power Play to your ticket to win larger non-jackpot prizes. A chance at these big jackpots makes a good stocking stuffer, but don’t forget to take care of yourself, too.
You could win $1,000 a day for life playing Lucky for Life tonight, and the Show Me Cash jackpot is up to $232,000. Good luck!
State offices, including the Missouri Lottery, will be closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will reopen for regular business on Monday.
In the meantime, thousands of Missouri Lottery retail locations are open statewide with all games available. The jackpots are growing, and holiday Scratchers are available if you’re planning on doing your shopping this weekend.
New this year is a $20 holiday Scratchers ticket, "Happy Holidays." Win up to $500,000!
Have you noticed all the fancy new Lottery equipment at retail locations? This weekend is when we finally make the switch to new software. As we upgrade the system, you may see some delays in regular features. For instance, we’re halting sales of Mega Millions on Friday night after the drawing until the new software comes up on Sunday. We’re also shipping Lottery tickets in a new and more secure way now, but you might experience delays in cashing as everyone learns the new system.
We’re improving your Lottery, and this transition will allow us to do bigger and better things in the future. We ask for your patience as we work to roll out this upgrade. Thank you for Playing It Forward!
The holiday Scratchers have arrived, and they’ll be available for purchase next week. All holiday-themed Scratchers, and Draw Games printed starting Oct. 19, are eligible for entry in our holiday promotion, the “Second Chance of a Lifetime – Holiday Chill Out.” This holiday season, we’ll be awarding prizes to help you relax, refresh and renew. Enter eligible tickets into your My Lottery account for a chance to win a world-class retreat, Missouri staycations, cash prizes of $1,000 or merchandise in a weekly drawing. The “Holiday Chill Out” promotion officially begins Oct. 19.
One holiday game is available now – the first $20 holiday ticket, “Happy Holidays,” offers players the chance to win up to $500,000 instantly. There is plenty of time left for shopping, but the holiday fun starts now. Look for holiday Scratchers at your favorite Missouri Lottery retail location.
It’s called a groundscore - when you spot something of value on the ground, discarded or lost by someone else, and you pick it up. Of course, if you know who lost it, you should try and return it. But that’s not always possible, and one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This California man found a $20 bill, bought a lottery ticket and won $1 million. A score, indeed.
The moral of this story is sign your tickets. A Lottery ticket is a bearer’s instrument. Sign the back of your winning tickets to avoid losing it to someone else.
