When we play the North Education Lottery we get a second chance to win when buying their 200X The Cash tickets by scanning the tickets into their lottery accounts. Winners of second-chance drawings get notified of their wins by email or phone call from the lottery. The 200X The Cash game features four second-chance drawings. The Jan. 4 drawing was the second drawing. Each drawing features one $1 million prize, one $200,000 prize, and 25 $500 prizes. Once entering our information on the official website, there’s a chance to get a phone call just like Diane Ingram who just won $1 million in a second-chance drawing. Diane Ingram made the decision to receive the prize as an annuity of $50,000 over 20 years or a lump sum of $600,000. When she chose the lump sum of $600,000 and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $427,500.
On Wednesday afternoon Ciane Ingram of Hamlet got the call and won $1 million in a second-chance drawing. When she answered the phone, she received the news that she’d won the $1 million grand prize in the 200X The Cash second-chance drawing on Jan. 4. The drawing received more than 1.7 million entries. Ticket sales from scratch-off games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $2.5 million a day on average for education.
