Hey everyone, first wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I am from Illinois, Chicago area and saw this post on second chance games. One second chance game that we have now in Illinois is for the $5 Wheel of Fortune Instant Ticket game. So far the most I have won on these tickets was about $10. I have 24 second chance entries already registered for one of the 3 Wheel of Fortune trips where you win a chance to win $1 million dollars. You don't go on the tv show but participate in a non-televised bonus round with Pat and Vanna. They have been advertising this hard in Illinois and I know of at least one macine that sold out of the tickets.

I was wondering if anyone else has been entering this second chance drawing and what do you think the chances are to win? I will try to post this in a separate forum too...

Thanks!

        Thanks rdg, I have enjoyed reading some of your posts so far. I'm sorry to the admin for not posting this in the right section. This is my first day here. I was trying to find if there is an Illinois forum but could not locate it?

            Hey, just saw your response after I asked you how many you had in on the other post. Sorry!

            Hopefully, both of us win a trip, that would be cool cooldude!

            I'm feeling lucky with this contest don't know why just feel lucky. Do you think there is a better chance to win in this first drawing period, the second, or third or the last chance round? I'm thinking the first round...

              I am thinking maybe the 3rd drawing would be the better chance ... Because I think by next year Illinois will have started to phase out these tickets and they may be harder to fine... But then again I have pulled a bunch of tickets out the loser bins ... but guess we will have to wait and see what happens...

                I found some just laying on the ground walking towards the new casino in Des Plaines. I can't beleive people just discard them. Even at the Taste of Chicago this year, I was in line waiting to spin the Lottery wheel (you had to buy $10 worth of instant tickets to spin it) and there was one gentleman in front of me scratching off a WOF ticket, he didn't win just threw it on the ground. I picked it up and said are you sure you don't want this and he said no you can have it. I think you have more of a chance winning the second chance drawing than the actual ticket! :)

                  In regards to the 3rd drawing being the best one to enter because there will be less tickets, upon further examination and a closer look of the rules, it states that they can supply more of these WOF tickets even if most of the prizes are claimed, sneaky, very sneaky IL Lottery!

                        Hey cook dude, I am only entering them online you? I like to see that the are posted right away. I don't trust the mail. Before I entered the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks drawings in the mail and never won anything.

                        I bought two more WOF tickets today, mainly so I could enter my tickets, one was a loser and one was a $10 Auto-win.
