ADVANCE TO GO Second Chance Promotion Rules

  1. Beginning July 1, 2011,  through September 20, 2011,  the Florida Lottery will conduct the MONOPOLY ADVANCE TO GO Second Chance Promotion in which players can enter their non-winning MONOPOLY Florida Lottery Scratch-Off tickets on the Florida Lottery website for a chance to win cash prizes up to $10,000, a Florida Vacation Getaway, and MONOPOLY Premier Edition Games.  Non-winning tickets from all five Florida Lottery MONOPOLY price points ($1, $2, $5, $10, and $20) are eligible for entry.  Winning MONOPOLY tickets cannot be used for entry in the Second Chance Promotion. 
  2. Four (4) MONOPOLY ADVANCE TO GO second chance drawings will be held between July 20, 2011, and September 21, 2011, from entries received by midnight the night before each drawing. Entries will be good for one drawing only. The drawing schedule is:

A grand total of one hundred ninety six (196) prizes will be awarded in the second chance drawings.
  4. To enter a non-winning MONOPOLY Scratch-Off ticket in the ADVANCE TO GO Second Chance Promotion, visit the Florida Lottery’s website at www.flalottery.com, click on the MONOPOLY “Second Chance” banner, and follow the “Ticket Entry” directions. Players will be prompted to log in or register. Scratch off the latex covering to reveal the 24-digit ticket number (4-digit game number and 20-digit ticket number) located below the play instructions on the front of a MONOPOLY Scratch-Off ticket and enter the entire 24-digit ticket number in the designated area. Players will be provided an option to play the interactive MONOPOLY Bonus Board Game to earn MONOPOLY Money which will be converted into the number of entries assigned to the ticket (MONOPOLY Money earned in the Bonus Board Game has no cash value).  If players choose not to play the game or if they experience technical problems while playing the MONOPOLY Bonus Board Game, the entries that would have been revealed in the course of playing the game will be credited to their entry account for that draw period.   Each non-winning MONOPOLY Scratch-Off ticket is randomly assigned a predetermined number of entries within a range assigned to the ticket value, as shown below.
    Ticket Price Point MONOPOLY Money Range Entry Range
    $1 $1,000-$5,000 1-5
    $2 $2,000-$7,000 4-14
    $5 $3,000- $7,000 15-35
    $10 $4,000-$8,000 40-80
    $20 $5,000- $9,000 100-180
  5. Players may enter as many times as they wish during the promotion period.  However, each valid ticket number may only be used one time, for one opportunity to receive entries into one (1) MONOPOLY ADVANCE TO GO second chance drawing. Tickets should not be mailed to the Lottery unless players are contacted by the Florida Lottery and requested to do so.  Non-winning tickets received in the mail by the Florida Lottery will not be entered in the drawing and will not be returned. The odds of winning are dependent upon the number of entries received.
  6. In each of the four (4) drawings, the first valid entry drawn will win the grand prize of $10,000 and a MONOPOLY Premier Edition Game.  The second through fourth valid entries drawn will win a second prize of a Florida Vacation Getaway and $1,000. The fifth through nineteenth valid entries drawn will win a third prize of a MONOPOLY Premier Edition Game and $200.  The twentieth through forty-ninth valid entries drawn will win a fourth prize of a MONOPOLY Premier Edition Game.  The second through nineteenth valid entries drawn will be used in the order in which they were drawn and as needed to select alternate grand prize winner(s) and/or alternate second prize winner(s) in the event a grand prize or second prize cannot be awarded. Alternate winners will not be selected for third and fourth prizes.
  7. The prize winners in each second chance drawing will be posted on flalottery.com on the day of the draw. The Florida Lottery will attempt to notify each grand prize, second prize and third prize winner by telephone, U.S. mail or e-mail using the contact information provided in the winner’s registration data no later than one (1) week after the winners are drawn.  If the Florida Lottery is unable to contact a grand prize or second prize winner within three (3) weeks of the date of the drawing, the winner will forfeit his or her right to claim the prize and the Florida Lottery will award the prize to an alternate winner as described above. If the Florida Lottery is unable to contact the alternate winner within three (3) weeks of the date of award of the prize, the alternate winner will forfeit his or her right to claim the prize and the Florida Lottery will award the prize to a second alternate winner. This process will continue until an alternate is contacted or the Florida Lottery has exhausted the list of available alternates. If the Lottery is unable to contact an alternate, the grand prize or second prize will not be awarded. An alternate winner who has not claimed the prize he or she originally won at the time of notification that he or she is the alternate winner of a higher prize will be awarded only the higher prize. An alternate winner who has claimed the original prize at the time of notification may retain the original prize and will receive the merchandise portion of the higher prize and the difference in cash between the original and higher prizes. If the Lottery is unable to contact a third prize winner within three (3) weeks of the date of the drawing, the winner will forfeit his or her right to the prize and the prize will not be awarded.
  8. All entries are subject to validation by the Florida Lottery and may be disqualified if eligibility requirements are not met. To claim a grand, second or third prize in a MONOPOLY second chance drawing, the player must submit to the Florida Lottery the original valid non-winning MONOPOLY ticket bearing the entry number selected in the drawing. Without such ticket, the player will forfeit his or her right to claim a prize. Winners must submit the valid entry ticket along with a completed Winner Claim Form DOL 173-2, revised 02/11, or Spanish Winner Claim Form DOL 173-2S, revised 02/11, and appropriate identification.
