Hi, Randy. The messages that are printed at the top of lotto and InstaPlay tickets are used to highlight a variety of Iowa Lottery products and initiatives, including promotions. The current message, as you have noted, references "The Cash Game," one of the Iowa Lottery's new scratch games. Nonwinning tickets in that scratch game can be entered into the Prize Zone promotion for a chance to win a cash prize

I purchased Mega Millions tickets, and they indicate at the top of each ticket "Play the Cash Game" I located Prize Zone and could not find any info as how to enter my no winner tickets to have a chance to win $100,000. What am I doing wrong? I can't scratch off any thing on these tickets !! I assume these are not eligible! Is that correct?
