I actually won something today in one of those second chance drawings ... although not a big deal, it is the first time winning anything in a second chance contest. This was the Florida Lottery "Make the Play College Football Fantasy 5" second chance where each $5 or more Fantasy 5 ticket is printed with a voucher number you enter online. I won a second place prize of 2 UCF team hats a 2 T-shirts.

Also, as an FYI, the email you get from the lottery notifying you that you won something has "CLAIMS" in the subject line. When I first saw it I thought it was one of those scam emails. Since I open them anyway (I like to see if there are any new scams out there), I found it was a real and legitimate email from the Florida Lottery.

        Always GREAT to hear about the winners we have here!

        Congrats on the hats and the T-shirts!!

              Some one else a while ago posted that they had won about 10k on a second chance.  The member attributed the win to the fact that there were less than 9k entries, so better odds. 

               

              Calif is phasing out all the end of game prizes. The weekly draws for much less they pad. EG, they advertise 100k but it is divided among 25 people.

                  I'd figured you win a prize money.  CONGRATS!

                    Way to go Duckman. I have yet to win on any of those Florida second chance promotions. May this be the beginning of a very big lucky streak! Hurray!HyperSmash

                        It was 20k, Redd ;-)  There are also $2.5 million, 5 and 10 million dollar 2nd chance drawings!

                        I am a $20,000 winner from a Georgia Lottery scratch off game called "$3,000,000 Taxes Paid"!
