Hey all, not sure if the Illinois Lottery wanted this out already, but my Lottery Retailer has a cardboard stand out with free entry forms to take for the upcoming $10 $200,000,000 Cash Spectacular game. Basically, save your tickets because you can start sending in non winning minimum of either a non winning Cash Spectacular ticket or a combination of $10 non winning tickets to enter a drawing to throw a half court shot at an upcoming basketball game later this year for a chance at a $1 million dollars. It says the contest officially starts on Sep. 2nd. There are also some smaller prizes you can win , i.e. $5,000 and $1,000 I believe.

The new September games come out on September 6th, looking forward to them!

Good luck everyone!

    Well, I have begun entering my tickets for the $200,000,000 Cash Spectacular Second Chance game online. Remember if you enter them online, you have to retain them, just like the WOF drawing! If you don't and are picked, they will go to the next person, which is why they are drawing hundreds of names!

    How many have you guys entered so far? I have 3 so far. Drawing is sometime in late September. It can be any tickets up to $10, you can have one $5 ticket and 5 $1 losing tickets to enter or just one $10 Cash Spectacular ticket.

    The drawing is kind of hidden on the Illinois Lottery website so you have to dig around to find it.

    Good luck all!

      We haven't seen this tickets yet way south of Chicago but from what the promo says I think these have any raffle beat.

      If I read it right it's 25 top prize winners- $1,000,000 each. That certainly beats a 500,000 ticket raffle that has four top prizes of one million anytime. At half the price no less.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              It's funny how these stores start the rolls. The little convenience store I go starts them at 000, the 7 Eleven starts them at the end. I wonder if the Illinois Lottery requires them to start from the beginning or end of the roll or it doesn't matter?

                    Today is the first time I've seen these tickets down here, and the sweepstakes entry forms.

                      CoinToss, where do you live in Illinois? Decatur, Peoria? It seems like that's where all the big winners come from you should buy some...

                        Way south of those places, closer to Southeast MO.

                        Not sure if you're talking big winners in scratchers or jackpot games, but it seems there's a lot more form your area (duh, population) than anywhere else.

                        There are threads in Pick 5 for IL Little Lotto Jackpots for 2008, 2009, and 2010, and IL Lotto Jackpots in the Jackpot Games threads. If you care to, go through them and see where the winners were.

                            Well, I'm talking per capita it seems like the winning percentages are higher down in Souther Illinois for instants. I'm just talking about instants...

                              What you're calling Southern Illinois we call Yankees!

                              Green laugh

                              I'm one county north of the "Southern Seven". Residents of those counties who go to Kentucky colleges pay in-state Kentucky tuition. I'm not kidding.

                              Have to disagree with you on the location of the winners. It doesn't matter if it's the draw games (Little Lotto, Lotto), raffles, 2nd chance drawings, or scratchers, most of the winners are Chicago and the collar counties.

                              Consider we didn't even see the $10 Cash Spectacular tickets until two days ago.
