      I absolutely LOVE second chance drawings! Aside from the $20,000 tax free money that I won, I have won some very nice prizes like a stereo system, hammock w/stand, camping gear, a Michael Kors watch, gold/diamond ear rings, stuff for my pets, etc. The list of things I've won is long and very, very much appreciated!

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

          It doesn't hurt to enter in the 2nd chance drawings.  I suspect people are entering a lot with tickets they've found.  You never know you might win.

            I have changed my mind about entering tickets for the 2nd chance drawing.

            I have entered all of my non-winning tickets and will do so for any tickets I find or pick up at the store.

                I hope you win something.
                the odds of winning any prize playing any game are high enough.
                why shouldn't someone take advantage of a second chance?

                Good Luck

                  This morning someone discarded about 70 $5 scratchers. So I scooped them up and will enter them - maybe 10 per week.  IMHO, better to be in each second chance drawing than enter them all at once.

                    How did you find them in the trash?  I'm trying to look for some as well but am a bit worried that someone might say something if I was to dig through the trash.

                      Sitting on the counter next to the scanner.  Some places put a small bucket near the scanner for people to put their discarded scratchers in.  I use to buy MM/PB at a liquor store and they wd have several buckets filled with discarded scratchers. At the time I didnt know about second chance.

                        I used to be the same way, but then thought, hey, it's trash, not like I'm stealing anything.  Sure, you may get strange looks, but I've become immune to that  Some people cannot be bothered with entering points.  In NC and perhaps in most of the states with these drawings, the more expensive the ticket, the higher the points, and I usually don't buy tickets over $5.  I have some of those yellow rubber gloves,  a plastic bag in my car, and hand sanitizer for the few places that I get tickets  that are in the trash.  But like someone mentioned, different places may have a box or something nearby the lotto area, and some players just leave the tickets on the counter, because they know people will enter them in the drawings.  Here in NC, you can enter up to 75 tickets a day.  Plus , after finding winning non cashed in tickets several times, on top of the extra points, I can handle the weird looks from strangers.  Wink

                            Nice people where you live. Here they are nice enough that they tear up the tickets purposely i am sure so no one can benefit from second chance. So rude..lol

                              Sure you can benefit from them.  All you need are the entry numbers - not a whole intact ticket.
