Jan. 9, 2014 – Now is the time to take one last shot at winning the top prize on some of the Nebraska Lottery’s scratch-off games that are in limited supply. Players can look for the Last Shot logo to see which games have just one top prize left – these tickets could be worth more than a huge instant win.
The new Last Shot promotion from the Nebraska Lottery is encouraging players to buy some of these limited-supply tickets. Any game advertised as a Last Shot game is close to being sold out and has only one of its original top prizes left.
Lottery players often check their state lottery’s websites to see which games have higher-tier prizes left, as this can often signal better odds of winning than when a game is first released.
With their new Last Shot promotion, the Nebraska Lottery is doing this research for its players, and to help clear out the limited supply of these games, they’re also offering players a chance to win $300 worth of scratch-off tickets in a second-chance contests.
To enter, players must enter the serial number of one of the Lottery’s non-winning Last Shot games and a 4-digit boxed-in code from the front of each ticket. Every month, the Lottery will hold a drawing to determine the winner of a full pack of scratch-offs, worth $300.
Winners can choose any game for their pack of scratch off tickets. How does that break down? That means the winner of a Last Shot drawing could get 300 $1 tickets, 150 $2 tickets, 100 $3 tickets, 60 $5 tickets, 30 $10 tickets or 15 $20 tickets.
The overall odds on some of the Lottery’s $3 games are about 1 in 3 and a half – imagine what you could win with 100 tickets!
The Last Shot promotion started Jan. 1, and the first drawing will be held Feb. 3. The final drawing is set for July 1, so players have until June 30 to find a Last Shot ticket and enter for a chance to win.
Players must log in or register for the Nebraska Lottery’s MVP Club to enter tickets. Registering takes almost no time at all, just provide the Lottery with some information so they can verify that you’re playing from Nebraska and are of age, and you’re ready to win.
Every Last Shot ticket could be the one to win the only top instant prize remaining, so remember: you can’t win if you don’t play. You can find a list of current Last Shot tickets here
