Pennsylvanias 2nd chance drawing "Jolly Jackpot" Christmas themed.

 

10 winners of $10,000 - 9 were women

Announced tonight, one winner of $100,000

 

Sonia "Christmas" was her name. Really? Sounds hand picked if I had to bet. 

 

Totally bummed.

        When she claimed the prize money, she had to show a photo ID, that all branch of the goverment would accepted. Driver lic.ect. All the infomation has to be correct for the lottery office to give you back the W2G forms for taxes, Sound like she just has a nice name,

            Someone on fb looked her up in the white pages in her county and that's her real name. I mean, the odds of winning the second chance drawing for Christmas is one thing, but being picked the winner and that's your name? I can see why people think its rigged or unfair. Just sounds like a hand picked inside job to me. But nothing I can do about it. I dout I'll be playing any of the second chance scratch offs anymore when they come out. I always try to stay positive and like to think it's actually fair, but this has put serious dout in my mind and apparently many feel the same way.

                  PaScratchAddict,

                  Sonia "Christmas" was her name. Really?

                  This sounds like something the News of the Weird website might be interested in!

                  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.

                        change your name to "christmas" and "noel" for this coming year drawing to see if they rig it. :)

                        playing what can be afforded...spend half of what was reclaimed.

                            The fastest man who ever lived is Usain Bolt, nicknamed the lightning bolt. People thought that was bizarre. When he crashed his car the investigating officer's surname was Sheriff. A sprinter named Bolt, a cop named Sherriff. A Christmas time winner named Christmas doesn't seem all that strange. If her first name was Noel then maybe. Wink
