How to join eClub to be a member for a second chance draw?
As mentioned above you can only enter the second chance draw if you become a member of the eClub at the Lott.
First step is to register yourself at the Lott website.
Fill the short form with your few personal details like name, email, date of birth and address with phone number. You might need to verify your identity if required.
Once done you become a registered member and gain access to Scratch eClub membership to enjoy the benefits of an online account including being able to play Australia’s favourite lottery games anytime, anywhere.
Now click on the account icon in the top-right corner and select Funds from the drop-down menu.
Under the ‘Add funds to my online balance’ section click on the Deposit With new card option if you wish to fund with credit card. You can also use Bpay or pay directly with your netbanking account that’s your choice.
Complete all fields in the pop up window including a deposit amount over $1.00.
The Instant Scratch Its ticket range from $1- $20.
The odds of winning a prize on Instant Scratch-Its are generally 1 in 4, however this doesn’t mean that if four tickets are purchased one has to be a winner. These are overall odds based on the total number of tickets available for sale in a game, not on an individual purchase. All prize amounts (including the top prize) are only available until won. This may occur prior to all tickets in a game being sold.
If you are not a winner, never mind, each month you can submit eligible non-winning tickets in Scratch eClub’s Second Chance Draw for a chance to win $1,000.
This means you can login with your online account or Scratch eClub account to start entering each month’s Second Chance Draw. The Club also offers monthly Birthday Draws and exclusive news for its members.
The monthly Second Chance Draw is conducted on the second Wednesday of every month.
If you ever forget to claim a prize, The Lott will automatically send you a prize cheque, deposit the prize money into your online lottery account or into your bank account 4 weeks after the last draw on the ticket.
Everyday there are thousands of people winning on Instant Scratch-Its tickets. Last year there were over 25 million Instant Scratch-Its winners, which is over half a million winners a week; 6,377 winning tickets an hour; 106 winners a minute.
All this happens because you have become a member by opening an online lottery account and linked your eClub card. With your online account you can view your ticket and prize history (including unclaimed retail prizes), setup online prize payments, keep your details up to date.
No worries now if you didn’t win the scratchie for the first time, Join eClub and take a second chance.
