    A better Question is: Have You Ever Won a Second Chance Drawing?

        I don't usually buy scratch tickets so my answer was never.

          In NC, you can enter all type of tickets, not only scratch. Each $1 amount is worth at least 1 point, sometimes more.  These points can be used for other promotions, outside of the 2nd chance drawings. Some people get confused, and don't realize that the other weekly and monthly drawings are different, and that they have to not only enter the tickets, but use their accumulated points towards drawings. I haven't won anything yet, but do enter my tickets, and any other random ones that I find. Wink

            As long as you get credit for them, no sense in not entering.

                I'm in CA and we get second chance on 5 dollar purchaes on fantasy 5 and any superlotto purchase. I enter over 100 codes a week cause I pick the trash next to the scratch ticket vending machines...lol. I haven't won yet. Oh and picking the trash pays off. Well one day I found 180.00 worth of winning tickets.. I was soooo excited..i took them home and entered codes and sure enough they were winners.. I go back to the store and found out they were cashed..so bummeed.. It's was strange cause the stores usually keep the tickets.. That very day though i found a ticket worth 4.00 in the trash that was not cashed.. So picking the trash is great..lol.. I do feel like a bum when i do it..as long as the store doesn't mind i don't mind.

                    That 2nd chance thing out here is a waste of time.

                          I just had a thought.

                          Is the second change entry just another way for the state / I.R.S. to track how much you spend on lottery tickets and then can compare it to your income tax return to see if you're not reporting unearned income?

                          After all, most people don't report winnings under the $600 threshold when (and if) they win.

                          Just something to think about.

                            The vast majority of players lose more than the win over the course of a year. It's not worth the effort for the IRS to track non-reported under $600 wins. Furthermore, claiming one's losses equals / exceeds their winnings to reduce tax liability is often accepted with few to no questions by the IRS for modest amounts. What is considered "modest" depends on many factors, but in my view, $25,000 or less of reportable wins over the course of a year is likely a good benchmark.

                            Lotteries providing win / loss statements would likely help more players than it would hurt. Most players lose more than they realize. Presumably, many don't claim all the gambling losses they truly incurred, to offset reportable wins, when filing their taxes.
