FAQs for New VIP Club Members

Newsletter & Free Play

How do I access my monthly newsletter and free play?

You'll receive a monthly newsletter and free play if you have "Yes" checked next to "Receive Email Communications", on the Account Management, Update Profile page.

You'll receive the newsletter and free play by email, but you can also access them online when you are logged in to the VIP Club through the website using the "VIP Connection & Free Play" link on the left-hand side of your screen.

Mobile App

What is the LotteryPlus app and how do I get it?

You can use the app to:

  • check tickets to see how much you've won
  • check winning numbers
  • see current lotto and InstaPlay jackpots
  • join the VIP Club and enter Play It Again® promotions
  • and much more!

The LotteryPlus app is available for both Android and Apple devices. Using your mobile device, navigate to the site you use to download apps and search for "Iowa Lottery LotteryPlus." Or, you may use the link above to visit our mobile app page, where there are links to each platform's app store.

Entering a Play It Again® Promotion

What tickets are eligible for promotions?

Each promotion will have a specific game(s) deemed eligible for entry. A list of active promotions and information about eligible games can be found under the Promotions tab.

Which numbers do I enter on my ticket?

Enter an eligible, nonwinning scratch ticket the easy way with the app and scan your ticket to enter.

Or, to enter manually, you'll need the 10-digit entry number from the front of the ticket and ticket number, which is found on the back. The 10-digit entry number is found under the latex area on the front of your scratch ticket and can't be seen until it is scratched off. Three of the numbers in that 10-digit code are inside a rectangular box. The ticket number is under the bar code on the back of the ticket. If you need additional help finding the numbers to enter, click on the Scratch ticket example link on the Enter Drawings page.

For a lotto or InstaPlay ticket, refer to the example on the entry page for the promotion.

Do I need to keep my tickets after I enter them in a promotion?

You do not need to keep your nonwinning tickets after entering them in order to claim a prize in a promotion. However, for promotions where you enter using a lotto or InstaPlay ticket (like Powerball or Cherry Twist Progressive), be sure you have checked that ticket for winners before disposing of it.
