If you were looking to buy the 31 Holly Days Wisconsin Lottery scratch off tickets, you might have a hard time finding them.

The $15 dollar instant scratch off ticket, which features 31 ‘days’ of scratch off spots has sold out, said Jennifer Western, assistant deputy secretary of the Department of Revenue.

“The warehouse sold out of the tickets on Nov. 26, but people still might be able to find some on retailers shelves,” Western said.

The state started selling the tickets on Oct. 10. Last year, the state offered a similar ticket, which sold out Dec. 13.

“In a way it’s a good thing that these tickets are selling out because it means that we have a demand for the product,” Western said.

But now that the inventory for the game is sold out, the state won’t be making more of the 31 Holly Days scratch off tickets. Still, the state offers several other holiday-themed scratch off games including: Holiday Gold, Snow Me The Money, Candy Cane Crosswords, Snowman Cash, and Holiday Bucks.

There’s also a Holly Jolly raffle.

“It’s not a scratch ticket. It’s a raffle where the state sells 100,000 raffle tickets with the top prize being $100,000,” Western said.
