Big Scratcher Promo FAQs

For detailed information about the promotion, please see the Drawing Rules.

Promotion and Rules are subject to change.

Q: How does the Big Scratcher Second-Chance Promotion work?

A: Go to My Rewards and follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your My Rewards account (or sign up for one, it’s free!)
  2. Go to the Enter Tickets tab to enter your New Mexico Lottery Authority (NMLA) non-winning Scratchers from either Game #375 Royal Riches or Game #368 Super Triple Red 777’s.
  3. Each eligible non-winning Scratcher entered receives one (1) entry.
  4. The Entry will be automatically entered in the Big Scratchers Second-Chance Promotion Drawing for the month it is entered in.


Q: Which instant tickets are eligible for the Big Scratcher Second Chance Promotion Second-Chance drawing?

A: Only non-winning Scratchers from the following games are eligible for the promotion:

  • Game #375 Royal Riches
  • Game #368 Super Triple Red 777’s


Q:  Why are these two games the only “big tickets” eligible for the promotion?

A:  Tickets from Game #375 Royal Riches and Game #368 Super Triple Red 777’s refer to the My Rewards Monthly Promotions on the ticket back.  The My Rewards Monthly Promotions ended before these games were made available for sale, so we created an opportunity for players to still enter them in a second-chance drawing.


Q: If I have a Scratcher from these games, what is the Last Day to Claim a prize?

A: These games will end on September 1, 2021. The last day to claim a prize is November 30th. This end of game information is posted at Lottery Retailers and on the NMLA .


Q: Can I enter the Big Scratchers Second-Chance Promotion more than one time?

A: Yes, you may enter the Big Scratchers Second-Chance Promotion as many times as you wish. Please note, players may enter up to fifty (50) tickets per day in My Rewards. Each non-winning ticket from the eligible games may only be entered one time.


Q: How can I be sure that my entry has been submitted?

A: When you submit an entry, a record of it appears on the My Entries Page. There are multiple tabs on this page. Look for the one that shows Entries.


Q: Can I mail in my Scratchers to enter the Promotion Drawing?

A: No, only internet entries (via desktop computer or mobile device) are allowed in this promotion. Tickets submitted by any other method will be disqualified.


Q: Do I need to keep my Scratchers after entering them into the Big Scratchers Second-Chance Promotion?

A: No, you do not need to keep your Scratchers after verifying that your entry has been submitted.


Q: How many entries do I get for each non-winning Scratcher entered?

A: Players will receive one (1) entry for each non-winning eligible Scratcher entered.


Q: What are my chances of winning a prize in the Big Scratchers Second-Chance Promotion?

A: Your odds of winning are based on the total number of entries received for the drawing and the total number of entries that you have submitted.


Q: How will I be notified if my entry is selected for the Big Scratchers Second-Chance Promotion?

A: If your entry is selected, the New Mexico Lottery will contact you via email and/or by phone. Prizes will be mailed to the address provided on the winner claim form.


Q: There are nine drawings, how do I know which drawing I entered?

A: An entry submitted between an Entry Start Date and an Entry Deadline Date is only eligible for the corresponding drawing and does not carry forward as an entry in a subsequent drawing.
