June 7, 2013 – Buddy Roogow, executive director of the D.C. Lottery, announced the winners of the DC Gold Second Chance drawing Thursday on the local NBC News 4 Today.
Earl Frank Holsendorff of Northeast Washington won the $1 million grand prize, and Terry Jacobson of Silver Spring, Md., won a Golden Getaway.
The Golden Getaway, according to Roogow, is worth $10,000, and Jacobson can choose one of three vacations to either Hollywood, Las Vegas, or San Francisco, and the prize includes some spending cash for the trip.
The DC Gold Second Chance drawing chose the two winners from a pool of non-winning ticket numbers entered into the Second Chance game online.
Roogow told the morning news anchors that the winners had 30 days to claim their Second Chance prizes in person.
The DC Gold scratch-off, a $20 ticket, still has some great prizes to be won, including one more first prize of $1 million.
Roogow told NBC News 4 that the ticket is 90 percent sold out from DC retailers, making it likely that another millionaire will be made in D.C. soon.
