With a variety of Holiday Scratch-offs to choose from, finding the perfect gift for the adults on your holiday shopping list is even easier this season. The holiday offerings also include “To” and “From” areas printed on them, making gift-giving even easier.

“Gifting Hoosier Lottery games continues to be popular throughout Indiana. Our new Holiday Scratch-offs make shopping for all the adults on your list easy and convenient,” said Hoosier Lottery Executive Director Sarah M. Taylor. “No matter the occasion, Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs are fun gifts of entertainment.”

Responsible Gifting
The Hoosier Lottery is again participating in the National Council on Problem Gambling’s “Gift Responsibly Campaign.” As a level 3 participant (the highest level of participation), the Hoosier Lottery is including tips on responsible gifting in all its holiday communications.

“All year long, we encourage players to keep play positive by setting a limit, knowing their game and keeping it fun,” said Taylor. “The holidays are the perfect time to also emphasize that Hoosier Lottery products should always be given to adults from adults.”

Research conducted by McGill University shows that the earlier a person’s participation or exposure to gambling is in childhood, the more likely they are to develop a gambling problem later in life. Gambling exposure during childhood is often through some kind of lottery product, such as lottery tickets or Scratch-offs. Often these items are given to a child by an adult who is unaware of the associated risks. The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to please gift responsibly by only giving Hoosier Lottery games to adults 18 years and older. Problem Gambling Helpline: 1-800-994-8448. Learn more at
