A Spring Basket of Winning!

Looks like we’ve finally escaped the long arm of Old Man Winter! Now, it’s time to hop, hop, hop into Spring’s rainbow of winning.

Players are hitting win after win with the BIG MONEY PLAY BOOK. The first win is in the value of this must-have page-turner. Within these pages are SIX- $5 DC Scratcher games that you can play and win—all for $20. That’s like getting TWO scratchers and their winning opportunities FREE. The next win we’ll celebrate is the first $100,000 top prize winner! Darrell A. from DC says he really enjoyed getting the extra games for the price and that he can’t wait to come back for his next win! We’ll be waiting for you, Darrell! And, we’re not done yet! There’s still a $100,000 top prize remaining with the BIG MONEY PLAY BOOK and over $7 million in total cash prizes available. Go with the big money. Get your BIG MONEY PLAY BOOK, today!

The ‘sprinkler’ is on! The Race2Riches Sprinkler is back. This limited time offer will have players trotting to the DC Lottery retailers with the quickstep. Through May 24, you could DOUBLE or even TRIPLE your Race2Riches win up to ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Nothing extra required on your part. Just play and if you’re a lucky Sprinkler winner, a winning message will appear on your ticket!

Looking for a little bling for Spring? Try Bling Bling Bucks, the newest gem in the DC Fast Play treasury. Just $5 to play, the game features a main play area, two BONUS play areas, and the top prize is $50,000! How’s that for a little sparkle? Bling Bling Bucks hits your favorite DC Lottery retailer on April 20.

And, if you’re looking for some winning on the go—the Lucky Lottery Mobile is back in action! We’re coming out of hibernation and hitting the streets almost daily with games, prizes, and special onsite promotions! Check out our promotions page for the where and when. Then beat us there for all the fun.

We love DC! It’s a special place with unique opportunities. And, here’s one winning opportunity that you can only find in DC. Play HOT LOTTO, the national jackpot games with grand prizes that start at $1,000,000. Drawings are Wednesdays and Saturdays and the odds are better than Mega Millions and Powerball. And, if you needed more reasons to play… WE PAY THE TAXES! That’s right. No need to read my lips, you’re reading in print. All taxes—federal, state, and local—on DC Hot Lotto jackpot wins are paid by the DC Lottery. So, when you win—it’s all yours. No sharing with Uncle Sam or anybody else unless you want. Play Hot Lotto, a unique winning opportunity found only in DC!  

Remember, you can always stay connected, see the latest promotions, get your winning numbers, see fun videos of winners, and more with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, DC’s Best Bet, and of course, your online source for all things D.C. Lottery.
