Eclipse Cash

Game Details

And the sky went dark save for only the sliver of a golden ring around the moon, and the earth grew quiet and still. A sense of wonder, a scene of awe and inspiration befell all who witnessed. It was June 8, 1918. That was the last time a total solar eclipse was witnessed in Idaho.

For an event that only occurs once every century, the Idaho Lottery is commemorating the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 with an out of this world Scratch Game, Eclipse Cash. The $5 game itself dazzles like the Milky Way on a clear, warm summer night and carries a celestial top prize of $50,000.

In the game, players reveal ECLIPSE NUMBERS underneath moons covered in twinkling stars. ECLIPSE NUMBERS are then matched to YOUR NUMBERS hidden underneath 20 phases of the solar eclipse and glittering stars. When the numbers match, players win the prize for that number. If a player uncovers a shooting star symbol they win double the prize shown.

As the morning of August 21, 2017 draws near, players can prepare themselves for a cosmic show unlike any other. Players can also prepare for winning a cosmic prize of $50,000. Combine the two, and you have a once in a lifetime event!
