The existences of random attractors in $L^p(D_N) \cap L^{2p-2} (D_N)$ are proved for a class of stochastic semi-linear degenerate parabolic equations on arbitrary bounded or unbounded domains $D_N \subseteq \mathbb{R}^N$, where the leading term of the equations has the form $\mathrm{div}(\sigma(x)\nabla u)$ and the nonlinearity $f(x, u)$ satisfies some dissipative assumptions and the growth of order $p-1, p \gt 2$. The asymptotic compactness of the corresponding random dynamical system in $L^p(D_N)$ and $L^{2p-2} (D_N)$ are established respectively by using an asymptotic a priori estimate method. Our result improves a previous result of Yang and Kloeden [25] concerning the existence of a compact random attractor in $L^2(D_N)$ for the same equations.
