Brighten Your Holiday with R.I. Second Chance

Fans of the Lottery’s $5 Winter Winfall scratch-off game can enter non-winning tickets into the very first Winter Winfall second chance drawing for a chance to win some extra holiday cash. Winter Winfall itself offers a top prize worth $35,000, but if players miss the first time around, the second chance drawing is a perfect way to better your odds.

Keno players have an incredible chance to win a holiday gift for themselves next week too.  Non-winning Keno tickets worth $5 or more can be entered into a second chance drawing that will send the winner to Miami. Next week’s Keno second chance drawing is the second and final chance for players to win VIP tickets to see the New England Patriots take on the Miami Dolphins in sunny Florida.
