« Such A Relatable Story: He Had To Check His Winning Ticket A BUNCH Of Times | Main | Scheduling Note: Iowa Lottery Offices Closed For A Few Upcoming Holiday Dates »

December 21, 2022


Hi, Zap. You are correct that our holiday games are being switched out right now with regular games. The holiday-themed games are specifically designed for sale during the holiday season and once the holidays have passed, the games are pulled from the market. We also want to ensure that the games have ended before the deadline for entries into the holiday promotion.

One Question: This is occurring now in Johnson county area, but we still have several days until the cutoff period for entering the second chance holiday bash drawing, however it appears many of the retailers in my area I trade with are pulling all the holiday tickets out of the rack and placing non holiday tickets. There's no way that all the TOP big prizes of these holiday tickets have all been won with in the past five days to tell the retailers they can't sell a game that no max prize exists any more, but why are these retailers pulling out the holiday tickets when there are still tickets available to buy. Nothing like taking the WOOHOO out of my second chance opportunities
