Wheel of Fortune Scratch-it second chance drawing will signal end of game

Sept. 8, 2016 - Salem, Ore. The Oregon Lottery wants players to know that beginning Nov. 15, 2016, the Wheel of Fortune Scratch-it game will no longer be available. This is due to the game’s second chance drawing that will take place Nov. 16, 2016.

“The Lottery normally waits until all top prizes for a Scratch-it game have been claimed before ending a game,” said Interim Traditional Product Manager Tina Erickson. “With the ticket clearly touting the second chance prize on the face of the ticket, we determined it would be best to end the game just prior to the second chance drawing on Nov. 15.”

The Wheel of Fortune Scratch-it is the latest entry into the Lottery’s “family of games” Scratch-it offerings. In addition to the three second-chance prize packages, the game features four different tickets at different prices, with different top prizes. The $1 Wheel of Fortune game has a $5,000 top prize, the $2 game has a $10,000, the $5 ticket carries a $50,000 top prize, and the $10 ticket has a top prize of $100,000.

By entering non-winning Wheel of Fortune Scratch-its at www.oregonlottery.org, three players will be drawn to win a prize package that includes:

  • Round trip airfare for two to Los Angeles
  • Five days and four nights deluxe accommodations
  • $1,000 in spending money
  • Two tickets to a non-broadcast, lottery players-only taping of the Wheel of Fortune with Pat and Vanna and a chance to win $1 million
  • And more

Each prize level of the Wheel of Fortune Scratch-it offers players a varying number of entries based on the ticket’s price. The $1 ticket offers one entry, the $2 ticket gets two entries, the $5 ticket gets five entries, and the $10 ticket gets 10 entries into the second chance drawing.

The Wheel of Fortune Scratch-it second chance drawing will be conducted Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned over $11 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit www.oregonlottery.org
