Gold Star

Game Details

It’s a five star Scratch Game with a top prize of $5,000! And for only $1 per ticket, Gold Star offers one of the largest top prizes you can win from a dollar Scratch ticket. This game is the first in the “Gold” family of games that the Idaho Lottery will offer around the season of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games. The game even features six gold coins, gold bars with prizes, and the chance of non-winning tickets to win $1,000 through the “Go for the Gold” campaign.

Beginning on January 8, 2018 and running through February 28, 2018, players may enter any non-winning $1 Gold Star Scratch ticket through the Lottery’s VIP Club website at, or via tele-entry at 208-334-4656, for your chance to “Go for the Gold” and win one of seven, $1,000 prizes drawn weekly ahead of and during this winter’s Games. Entries close Wednesday night’s at 11:59 PM with the winners announced on Fridays beginning on January 19, 2018.

Players may enter as many times as they wish. Entries are non-cumulative, meaning you’ll have to enter each week for your chance at gold, make that the $1,000 weekly prize. Plus, you could still win up to $5,000 on Gold Star!
