July 12, 2013 – The Georgia Lottery’s “Play it Again” second chance drawings are set to kick off July 21, beginning a year-long promotion of awesome trips and prize packages, as well as 12 chances at $100,000 cash grand prizes.
Players can enter into Play it Again drawings using codes from non-winning $1 and $2 Georgia Lottery scratch-off tickets, and each month there will be one grand prize winner and 4 featured prize winners.
The grand prize winners chosen each month will participate in a Lottery drawing event, and will have to choose one envelope out of 20 to see how much cash they’ll be going home with.
Each envelope will contain a cash prize worth either $5,000, $10,000, $15,000, $20,000, or $100,000, the amount each lucky winner walks away with is up to their lucky guess.
And each of the 12 drawings offers 4 featured prizes from Vegas vacations to home remodeling.
This month’s featured prize is a trip for two “extreme shoppers” to a prize warehouse in Chicago, where they’ll race through the aisles and try to grab as much merchandise as they can in 60 seconds.
The Lottery’s website describes the prizes ready to be yanked from the shelves as “major brands of video and audio electronics, computers, kitchenware, sporting goods, jewelry and much more.”
July’s featured prize also includes round-trip airfare to Chicago, a two-night stay at the Downtown Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile, and a dinner at Fleming’s steakhouse.
All of the featured prizes are valued at about $7,900, and for many of the prizes winners can choose to take the cash value of the prize, rather than the prize itself.
Each drawing will also award 1000 Prize Points packages to Play it Again participants, which can be redeemed on the Lottery’s second chance bonus zone page for great prizes.
100 participants will receive 40,000 Prize Points. Some of the great prizes in the bonus zone worth about 40,000 points are tablets, televisions, watches, and more.
200 more participants will win 20,000 Prize Points, and 700 more Play it Again contestants will win 10,000 prize points. All 900 of those winners can redeem their points for great housewares, jewelry, sporting goods and more.
