  1. Who can enter? The New York Lottery Players Club Promotion (the “Players Club Promotion”) is open to any holder of a valid New York Lottery ticket for an eligible draw or instant game for the promotion period between August 15, 2016 and a date to be determined by the Lottery and announced via the website for this Promotion. A person must be 18 years of age or older to enter.
  2. Method of Entry: To enter the New York Lottery Players Club Promotion, go to http://nylottery.ny.gov and click on the Players Club Promotion button. An entrant must register for a free Players Club Promotion account (one account per person) or log in to an existing account and then complete the entry form including the entry numbers from any eligible ticket.
    1. Eligible games for which tickets can be entered into the Players Club Promotion will be listed on the Eligible Games List page.
    2. For non-winning Scratch-Off tickets: Players must enter the fourteen-digit Game Number from the front of the eligible non-winning Scratch-Off ticket under the scratch surface and the fourteen-digit Ticket Number from the back of the ticket above the barcode. Players may instead scan the barcode printed in the play area under the scratch surface on the front of the non-winning ticket for entry using the mobile app. Winning Scratch-Off tickets are not eligible.
    3. For unclaimed winning or non-winning Draw Game tickets sold within the last sixty days: Players must enter the eighteen-digit Ticket Number from the front of the eligible ticket. Players may instead scan the barcode printed on the ticket for entry using the mobile app. Winning Draw Game tickets that have been claimed are not eligible.
    4. For each eligible ticket successfully entered into the Players Club Promotion, an entrant will receive an amount of entries corresponding with the price of the ticket. The number of entries awarded will be no less than the price of the ticket entered, while additional entries may be awarded for higher priced tickets at the discretion of the Lottery (A $1 ticket would generate 1 entry, while a $5 ticket would generate at least 5 entries). The number of entries awarded will be displayed on the screen upon successful entry.
    5. Players are prompted to choose the drawing category into which to assign the entries (Players Club Store Points, Cash or Special Prizes). All entries received from a single ticket must be assigned to the same drawing category.
