On the home page of the Florida Lottery's website, players are to click on the Second Chance tab, select the Gold Rush Supreme Bonus Play Promotion and follow the directions. Players will be prompted to log-in or register. On the App, players may click on either of the Promotions buttons, select the Gold Rush Supreme Bonus Play Promotion and follow the directions.

Players are to scratch off the coating on the front of the ticket to reveal the number and enter the entire 24-digit ticket serial number and 3-digit PIN number in the designated ticket entry area on the website or scan the ticket barcode located under the Scratch-Off ticket coating on the front of the ticket using the App. The 24-digit ticket serial number (4-digit game number and 20-digit ticket number) is located below the play area on the front of a GOLD RUSH SUPREME Scratch-Off ticket under the latex covering. The 3-digit PIN number is located within the 24-digit ticket serial number. Each digit of the PIN number is surrounded by a box. Players may enter a qualifying ticket into the Promotion at any time of day during the Promotion Period; however, on occasion, entry capabilities on the website and App may be temporarily unavailable due to routine maintenance or technical difficulties.

For each non-winning GOLD RUSH SUPREME Scratch-Off lottery ticket entered, the player will receive the minimum number of draw entries that is equal to the price of the ticket. Additionally, after entering the ticket, the player will be provided the chance to earn more entries by spinning the wheel in a play- for-fun interactive game that will reveal the multiplied number of draw entries earned. A player will receive from 1 to 5 times the price of the ticket entered in draw entries. For example, a $10 ticket will receive 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 entries.
