During the holiday season, and throughout the year, the Nebraska Lottery suggests tickets as a gift option for those hard-to-buy-for individuals on your list.

Three different Nebraska Lottery Scratch games feature a holiday theme: $1 Bad Gifts, which can be used as a gift tag; $3 A Christmas Story, featuring artwork inspired by the classic holiday movie; and $5 Peppermint Payout, which features prizes of cash and free Nebraska Pick 5 Lotto plays.

Players that do not win playing the $1 Bad Gifts game still have a chance to win by entering the ‘All Me’ Shopping Spree promotion. Just submit five eligible non-winning $1 Scratch tickets at nelottery.com for your chance to win a $10,000 shopping spree. A Grand Prize Drawing will be held on Monday, January 7, 2013. One Grand Prize winner will receive $10,000; one First Runner-up will receive $1,000; one Second Runner-up will receive $500; and one Third Runner-up will receive $250.

The mission of the Nebraska Lottery is to generate proceeds for good causes while providing quality entertainment options to Nebraskans. Over $458 million has been raised for the Nebraska Lottery’s beneficiary funds since the Lottery began in 1993. All 93 counties in Nebraska have benefited from projects funded with these Nebraska Lottery proceeds.
