Florida Lottery Players Win (Real) Monopoly Money
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.
