Super 2nd Chance Drawing to End this Year
Last drawing will be on December 26, 2024

Madison, Wis. -- Today the Wisconsin Lottery announced it will discontinue the weekly Super 2nd Chance Drawing at the end of this year. The last Super 2nd Chance Drawing will be held on December 26, 2024.

Super 2nd Chance Drawings from now through December 26 will proceed as normal.

"Weekly mail-in drawings are outdated and a very labor-intensive process," said Wisconsin Lottery Director Cindy Polzin. "Unfortunately, this drawing has become inconvenient for many of our players, especially with the increasing cost of postage."

The Lottery is implementing a comprehensive communications plan across the state to ensure that players, retailers, and others will be aware of the final drawing date in advance of December 26.

The Super 2nd Chance Drawing is a weekly drawing that requires non-winning Wisconsin Lottery tickets for entry. Each entry needs to contain at least $5 worth of non-winning Wisconsin Lottery scratch and/or lotto tickets that have not expired. To enter a Super 2nd Chance Drawing, players must mail in the entries to a special drawing address, listed on the back of Wisconsin Lottery lotto and scratch tickets. Ten $1,000 winners are drawn weekly.

After the final drawing on December 26, 2024, the Lottery has no plans to replace the Super 2nd Chance Drawing with another drawing, using a different method of entry. Wisconsin law does not allow for online entry from a residence.


The Wisconsin Lottery enriches communities statewide by giving back 93 percent of its revenue to winners, retailers, and Wisconsin homeowners. Since 1988, the Wisconsin Lottery has generated:

  • More than $19.1 billion in total revenue
  • Over $10.8 billion in prizes paid
  • More than $5.7 billion in funding for property tax credits to eligible Wisconsin homeowners.
