We Only Won $11, So We're Upping the Ante on our Lotto Contest

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Our final two Lotto Power Hour scratch-offs were the Lucky Tripler (winnings of up to $1,500) and the Loose Change (up to $500.) We lost them both, bringing our total hourly winnings to a cool $11. Maybe this is why they always say gamblers never win?

That said, there are some great scratch-off game ideas happening in our comments section, and we don't want to give the winner just $11. So here's what we're going to do. Add your best idea for a Lotto theme in the comments before 9am tomorrow. We'll pick our three favorites and ask readers to vote all day Friday until 3pm. At that point, whoever's winning will get to walk away with our Lotto money and a prize of his or her choosing from the Racked office. Could be a bag, could be a beauty product, could be jewelry—it's your call.

The fine print: The winner has to be able to physically pick up the prize from our HQ on the Bowery. Comments left on this post and the original post will be considered eligible for entry. Don't worry about leaving your contact information yet; if you're selected as one of the three finalists, we'll ask you to email your details to
