How to play

Scratchers logo

Scratch off the latex-covered play area to know instantly if you've won. Instructions for each active game are found in this section and printed on each ticket.

Scratchers payouts range from free tickets to $4 million, but you can also win merchandise like automobiles and trips.
Prices range from $1 to $20.
Chances of winning
Generally, the average chances of winning are 1 in 4 to 1 in 4.5. However, this does not mean that every fourth or fifth ticket will be a winner, as winning tickets are printed at random. Overall chances of winning vary from game to game due to the variance in prize structures.
How to redeem winning tickets
See any Scratchers retailer to cash winning tickets up to $25 (some retailers will pay up to $600 if funds are available). For prizes of $600 or more, complete and mail a claim form (also available at retail locations or Lottery office locations) with the winning ticket to:
Missouri Lottery
P.O. Box 7777
Jefferson City, MO 65102-7777

You have 180 days from the announced end of the game to claim your prize. Game-ended dates can be found on the Scratchers page.
