Play It Again® with your Explore Iowa scratch tickets for a chance to win vehicles or cash this summer!

Play Explore Iowa This Summer and Think Outside!

Polaris vehiclesYou could be exploring Iowa's backroads in an exciting Polaris® vehicle! When you enter your nonwinning Explore Iowa ticket in the promotion, you'll choose between a Polaris® gift certificate or cash worth up to $50,000. Here's how it works: we're holding three drawings this summer - in June, July and August - for winners of $25,000 Polaris® gift certificates and $5,000 cash prizes. Then there are grand prize drawings in September for one $50,000 Polaris® gift certificate and one $50,000 cash prize.

All entries not selected as a winner in the selected prize category in the first 3 drawings will be eligible for the grand prize for that same category. For example, those who enter for the $25,000 Polaris® gift certificate in one of the first three drawings would be eligible for the $50,000 grand prize Polaris® gift certificate. If a player enters to win a $5,000 cash prize in one of the first three drawings, they would be eligible for the $50,000 cash grand prize.

There's life after scratch, so get your tickets entered today!
