July 25, 2013 – The first drawing for the Florida Lottery’s “Advance to GO!” second-chance promotion was held yesterday, turning non-winning Monopoly scratch-off tickets into real money for 26 lucky people.

The grand prize in the drawing, $25,000 cash, went to Michael Mira of Zephyrhills (talk about a lucky town).

Five winners took home $2,500, while 20 more “Advanced to GO” and won $200 (Just like the Monopoly “chance” card).  For 50 others, the drawing meant a brand new game to play – they won Monopoly Millionaire board games.

There are still two more drawings for the Advance to GO! Monopoly second-chance promotion; the next to be held Aug. 14, and the final drawing will take place Sept. 4.

Head to the Florida Lottery’s bonus zone website website for other second chance promotions, and get to know the whole family of Monopoly tickets in the slideshow below.
