The end of the holiday season might mean having to say goodbye to dreams of sugar plums and rockin’ around the tree, but that holiday cheer doesn’t have to end just yet.    

With the Holiday Second Chance Promotion, the joy lasts until February 8.  

Enter by midnight January 31 and you will have a chance to win one of 16 prizes. The drawing's grand prize is $200,000. But, five other winners will score $5,000 and 10 folks will win $500.

If you purchased or received any of the five holiday tickets that launched in November of 2016, they are eligible for this second chance drawing. Eligible games include: Merry Money, Winter Winnings, Christmas Vacation, Holiday Riches, and Holiday Millions.

You have until midnight on Jan. 31 to register your tickets, get those points, and enter the promotion. The drawing will be held on Feb. 8, with the winner being notified shortly thereafter.

And, as if this news couldn’t get any better, there is still time to purchase those holiday tickets.

One top prize remains for each game. That’s right, you still have a chance to win $5,000 with Merry Money, $40,000 with Winter Winnings, $75,000 with Christmas Vacation, $150,000 with Holiday Riches, and $1 MILLION with Holiday Millions.

Feelin’ lucky?

Some of my tickets have multiple entries. I know that you will be able to discern the difference. Forgive me I hit the submit button to many times.My apologies.

I'm not the only one having a problem seeing the Holiday Second Chance Promotion. It showed up under Expired on previous post, but it is not there now under any of the sort modes!NC Lottery
If you go to REWARDS, click WINNERS, scroll to the bottom of the page, and select ALL from the display options, you will definitely see the status of the Holiday Second chance drawing winners.

Holiday 2nd chance not in ALL category either!???NC Lottery
If you go to REWARDS, click WINNERS, scroll to the bottom of the page, and select ALL from the display options, you will definitely see the status of the Holiday Second chance drawing winners.

How may people entered the holiday second chance drawing? I know there are 6.5 million entries, but how many players? I'm not asking for any specific person's amount of entries, just number of players as opposed to number of entries. NC Lottery
That information doesn't come to the blog moderators. If you would like the answer researched, please email playerinfo@lotterync.net with the specific request.

What are the odds of one person in Charlotte winning back to back $2500 contests??NC Lottery
1 million of the 10 million people who live in North Carolina live in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. It's not easier to win a lottery prize if you live in Charlotte or anyplace else, there are just lots of folks taking a chance to win who live in the Queen City. Good luck to you!

Where will I find the second chance drawing for Carolina Panthers and Holiday 2nd chance? They are no longer under drawings or winner list. NC Lottery
All you have to do is adjust the display settings on the page that shows your entries. Here is a blog we wrote about how to do that: http://bit.ly/2dAtJ1O

2/03/2017 11:02 - BARBARA S.

?cannot see drawing on active, all, or expired lists? I know I played and entered a good number of the holiday tickets. Why can I not see that drawing and my entry#? I see the other drawings!?

2/03/2017 07:32 - Jim B.

How many players submitted those 6.5 million entries. I think that number is part of the equation in determining ones chances to win NC Lottery
It's up to each individual to decide if they would like to share how many entries he or she made. If you know how many entries you made into the drawing, then you know your chances of winning a prize in the drawing. Good luck!

2/03/2017 07:10 - BARBARA S.

I cannot see any of my entries! I cannot find the drawing for the holiday 2nd chance?NC Lottery
Your entries are still good. Since the entry period for that drawing has closed, all you have to do is adjust the display settings on the page that shows your entries. Here is a blog we wrote about how to do that: http://bit.ly/2dAtJ1O

2/02/2017 06:55 - Jim B.

? Re: Holiday 2nd Chance; How many players entered tickets? How many Lucky Zone players are their? Thank you NC Lottery

Feelin' lucky? Nope!

2/02/2017 07:47 - Stephen C.

how do we ever find out who won the second chance drawings you have? Also, if I ever won, how do you inform the winner? Been trying for awhile and, naturally (since I don't know how told) never won NC Lottery
After they claim the prize, the names of winners are posted on the Winners page under the Lucke-Rewards tab. https://rewards.lucke-zone.com/drawings Winners first get an email to the address they shared when they joined the Lucke-Zone. So keep that address up-to-date. Then the lottery reaches out by a phone call and finally sends a certified letter. Hope you get that email soon.

2/01/2017 08:19 - Jim B.

What happen to all my entries for the holiday second chance promotion? They don't appear on my listng anymore....I had over 140 entries. please advise. NC Lottery
The entry period closed Tuesday at midnight, and the drawing is no longer active. If you scroll to the bottom of the WINNERS page and look at the Second Chance Drawings heading, off to the right there is a drop-down menu that allows you to adjust the display settings. Just click and and change it to "ALL" and you'll be able to see your entries for the Holiday Second Chance drawing.

Has an unlimited ticket hour or day ever been considered?NC Lottery
The lottery commission appointed to oversee the lottery has only approved the current level of daily ticket entry. If that changes we'll let everyone know :)

I never win anything big lol but I really need it. We have been stuck in a rough patch so it's certainly give me some much needed relief. relief I haven't had in 7 years, and I'm only 24 lolNC Lottery
Sorry to hear you're facing difficult circumstances. Please remember that games of chance can be fun, but there's never a guarantee of winning more than you wager, so please only play with money you can afford to spend on entertainment. And we wish you the best! :)

Expecting to win!!!!!

Is the drawing done by person or computerized??NC Lottery
This is one of the most common questions we get. Rewards drawings are held using a random number generator according to specific security procedures. To ensure fairness to all players, all lottery drawings are done with an auditor present and all the lottery’s security practices are independently reviewed on a regular basis. The more entries you make into a drawing, the more chances you have to win. But having even just one entry in a drawing gives you a chance to win. Here's a link to a blog we wrote with more information: http://bit.ly/2exhjp9

1/30/2017 11:35 - Robin H.

How will the winners be notified NC Lottery
The question we get most often has to do with winner notification and winner announcements as it relates to Lucke-Rewards and promotional drawings. Winners are typically notified by email within 48 hours. So for a drawing held on a Wednesday, winners can expect a message by 5 p.m. Friday. If a winner does not respond to email notification, we will follow up with a telephone call and, if necessary, send certified mail. We announce a winner’s name only after he or she has responded to notification and completes the claim process. We understand why folks are eager to find out who won but, until a prize is claimed, we don’t officially have a winner.Here's a link to a blog we wrote with more information: http://bit.ly/2exhjp9
