July 25, 2013 – The first drawing in Georgia’s year-long Play it Again second-chance contest was held Tuesday, kicking off the entry period for next month’s drawing, which will decide yet another grand prize cash winner and four featured prize winners.
The featured prize up for grabs in the August drawing is a chance to build every movie-lover’s dream – an in-home screening room just for you.
The Georgia Lottery will be drawing the names of four lucky people Aug. 27, and each will receive a gift card for $5,451 they can use to buy electronics, seating, popcorn machines – anything you can dream of for the perfect in home theater.
The total value of the prize is $7,900, and winners must choose a minimum of three stores, from a list of national chains, where they’ll be getting the supplies for their personal movie theater.
If you don’t think you’re much of a movie person, don’t think the prize isn’t for you. Featured prize winners who just don’t see the appeal in a screening room in their house can choose ANY of the featured prizes in the year-long promotion.
That includes vacations, cash for other home remodeling projects, and even a road tour with the band of your choice!
And if none of that sounds as good as cold, hard cash in hand, winners always have the option of taking the full $7,900 prize value (before taxes).
You can read more about the prizes available, entry periods, and drawing dates on the Georgia Lottery’s Play it Again website.
As for the July Play it Again drawing, Rhonda Tompkins of Atlanta won the cash grand prize. Winners of the grand prize have to choose their prize for themselves by picking one envelope out of 20 with a prize amount inside.
Though it isn’t clear which envelope Tompkins picked, we hope she was able to snag the largest prize of $100,000.
The winners of the featured prize, which was an epic shopping spree through a Chicago warehouse stuffed with prizes, were Amy Benton of Savannah, Cynthia Kendricks of Atlanta, Mark Stewart of Rome, and David Thomas from Concord.
