DENVER — Jitters. Pounding hearts. Shaky hands. Tears of joy.

If you've ever imagined what it must be like to win a Colorado Lottery Second-Chance Drawing, get ready to experience all of those winning moments.

This week, the Lottery released a Prize Surprise compilation video, featuring winning reactions from more than a dozen Lottery winners from across Colorado. All of the winners entered non-winning tickets online in Second-Chance Drawings for prizes up to $1 million.

Just try not to get goose bumps as you re-live the moment the Lottery surprised Dweight B. from Denver with a check for $100,000 while he was out fishing. Experience the same emotion felt by Joy T. from Akron, as her eyes welled up with tears at being handed a check for $250,000.

Proceeds from the Colorado Lottery's games — Lotto, Cash 5, Pick 3, Mega Millions, Powerball and Scratch — create, enhance, and protect parks, wildlife areas, trails and open space in Colorado. For 32 years, the Lottery has returned more than $2.8 billion to outdoor projects in Colorado through Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO), the Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado Parks & Wildlife.

VIDEO: Watch the winner compilation reel

I love this video.  I want to be fishing one day and have someone walk up and tell me I won the lottery.

    I love this video too!  It brought me happy tears of joy for the lottery winners.

    It has made my day! Thank-You Todd for including the video along with the news story!

    But what a coincidence that I was just on a state's website looking up second chance lottery tickets! I was looking up scratch tickets trying to determine which ones offered a second chance drawing. I then logged on to LP and saw this posting from Todd. I wonder if it's a sign?

                i want to   visit random strangers with  party balloons, a bottle of  champagne, and a giant novelty check, then just   sit back and  watch them deny everything to their neighbours and work mates.

                    I love to be fishing too. Then someone show up & say I hit the Lottery! Just made sure I have my life jacket on when I faint. Don't forget the smell salt. Green laugh
