We announced last month that we’re responding to our players’ feedback by revamping the Iowa Lottery’s free VIP Club. We also announced some deadlines as part of that transition. The first of those arrives a week from now.
You can enter eligible nonwinning scratch tickets for points in the VIP Club until 11:59 p.m. next Wednesday, May 15. And don’t forget the “Cash Blowout” promotion that gives you a new option for your points!
The Cash Blowout offers 12 cash prizes ranging from $100 up to $20,000! From now until June 30, you can use some or all of the points in your VIP Club account to enter the promotion. Each prize level requires an equivalent number of points for entry. For example, it takes 100 points to enter the drawing for five prizes of $100 and 1,000 points for an entry into the drawing for a $1,000 prize. There are corresponding entry points and prize levels for $2,000, $3,000, $4,000, $5,000, $10,000, and ultimately, 20,000 points for an entry into the drawing for a $20,000 prize.
You can enter the Cash Blowout until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 30. All unused points in the VIP Club also will expire at that time and the Points For Prizes™ store will close. We’ll select the Cash Blowout prize winners in drawings on July 2. The complete winners list will be posted on our website and we’ll also notify winners individually at the contact information provided in their VIP Club accounts.
As we announced last month, the VIP Club will be in transition for the next couple months, with our focus shifting to cash prizes and additional drawings as the club’s merchandise store is closed down. Moving ahead, we plan to have both cash and merchandise up for grabs as prizes in drawings through the VIP Club. We also want players to be able to use both their lotto and scratch tickets for entries. And of course, we’ll still email monthly coupons to you and have special offers and contests that are exclusive for VIP Club members.
