Hi, Montie. That step has not been taken in Iowa. But thank you for asking about it because it helps us gauge people's interest in being able to play online.

Is there any way to purchase a ticket on line so that I don't have to go out to a retailer to purchase one?

Hi, Mike. Yes, you can check Iowa Lottery scratch tickets online from a mobile device if you install our mobile app. I included the details about the app in the Q&A list in this blog entry, but here is that information again: The Iowa Lottery has a mobile app you can use to check the results of lotto, scratch and InstaPlay tickets from wherever you are. The app is available for both Apple and Android devices. Full details about it are available here: https://www.ialottery.com/Pages/Games/MobileApp.aspx

Can Scratch tickets be checked online....???

Hi, Nancy. I will forward your inquiry to our VIP Club staffers and ask them to reply to you at the email address you put in your comment here on the blog so they can reach out to you directly to help. There sometimes can be difficulty at the email service provider level in stopping our emails from going through. That's an issue beyond your control or ours, but our VIP Club staffers have been able to help a lot of folks through the years, so please look for an email from them.

As the lottery’s vice president of external relations, I’m a member of the senior management team at the Iowa Lottery, where I’ve worked since 1999. I’ve spent my years at the lottery learning as much as I can about all the ins and outs of the lottery industry. I’ll put that knowledge to work here so I can share the behind-the-scenes details with you!
