Russet Riches

Game Details

Idaho is famous for its potatoes. It says so on the license plates. And the Idaho Lottery’s connection to Idaho’s famous produce begins with its very first ticket being sold to Idaho’s potato billionaire, J.R. Simplot.

To celebrate National Potato Month in September, the Idaho Lottery is embracing its “inner” tuber and bringing players the best “farm to table” Scratch Game on the market. Russet Riches is more than a $2 game, bringing with it the chance to win $10,000 from regular game play, or up to $5,000 through a second chance, interactive game through a unique app code!

On the ticket, players match WINNING NUMBERS under dollar signs to YOUR NUMBERS underneath the spuds and tubers. There are ten chances to win on each game. That’s a lot of potatoes! When you match a number, you win the prize.

For all non-winning tickets, players may activate an 8 digit alphanumeric code from their ticket on the Idaho Lottery’s website through an interactive game – Russet Riches – where players turn potatoes into French fries. The prize board at the end of the game will let each player know how many entries they have won for the second chance draw for their chance to win the top prize of $5,000 or one of five $1,000 prizes.

So heat up a bakers, order your favorite French fry, maybe cook up some tots, pick up a few Russet Riches Scratch tickets and celebrate Idaho’s famous produce by winning $10,000 or one of the six second chance prizes!
