Summer heats up with second-chance, Lucke-Rewards drawings

June 19, 2020 Posted by NC Lottery at 2:31 PM
The deadline to enter to win some sweet prizes this summer, including a $1 million prize, is drawing near.

You have until Tuesday, June 30, to get your entries in to win second-chance drawings for:

A $1 million prize in our fourth Colossal Cash drawing.
A trip to Las Vegas in our second JAMES BOND Lottery Challenge second-chance drawing. Two lucky winners will receive roundtrip airfare to Las Vegas, four nights of deluxe accommodations and tickets to the JAMES BOND Lottery Challenge where up to $1 million can be won.
A $10,000 prize in our Red Hot Riches Flash Second Chance Drawing. 

The drawings for all three promotions are scheduled for Wednesday, July 8.

Entering your tickets into second-chance drawings is easy. Just enter or scan your $10,000,000 Colossal Cash, JAMES BOND 007™ or Red Hot Riches ticket through your account on or with your N.C. Lottery Official Mobile App.

Lucke-Rewards drawings have some deadlines coming up too.

For 10 points you can enter into the final two Relax Cash weekly drawings. Ten winners will take home $100 each week. The last two drawings are scheduled for Wednesday, June 24, and Wednesday, July 1. The deadline to enter for Wednesday’s drawing is Sunday and for the July 1 drawing it is Sunday, June 28.
Would you like to try your luck at finding treasure this month? Three lucky players will win $10,000 in our Tropical Treasure drawing. It only takes 20 points to enter for a chance to win, but make sure you do before the June 30 deadline. The drawing will be held on July 8.
And last but not least, you have until the end of the month to enjoy 2X the points anytime you enter any of our new 2020 Bucks scratch-off tickets into Lucke-Rewards. These new tickets, just out this month, include: Fast Bucks, Junior Big Ol’ Bucks, Bonus Bucks, and Millionaire Bucks.
As always, to earn extra points for playing and enjoy a little extra play, check out the “Earn Points” section of the website or N.C. Lottery Official Mobile app. This month, get a burst of summer fun and points with Carolina Cascades, the newest interactive game you can play for points!

Good luck!

LZ, I think you misunderstood me. I wasn't talking about all the 2nd Chance drawings, only the LUCK-E REWARDS drawings. Used to be you had a 3rd drawing. It wasn't weekly but monthly like your cash drawing but it usually was a trip or some sporting event or some other prize package. That's what I was referring to.NC Lottery
Thanks for clarifying what you meant, Tim. Our games and promotions team works hard to create new Lucke-Rewards drawings each month so players can typically find something they're interested in. In general, our standard drawings are the weekly and monthly drawings, but on occasion we are able to add in extra drawings for different types of prizes. While we haven't had those lately, we are working on some new ways to mix things up for next month.

I can't enter my points into the drawings because my points are not showing up.NC Lottery
That doesn't sound right! Please reach out to our online support team at and let them know about this. They should be able to take a closer look and see why your points aren't displaying correctly. Thanks!

I have submitted thousands of second chance cards on my mobile ap. How can I be sure they are being recorded. Seems I get passed up constantly while a friend of mine has won 4 TimesNC Lottery
Hi Rose, Sorry to hear you aren't having more luck lately. We have over a million Lucke-Rewards members often making millions of entries into drawings. So while it's true that the more entries you have, the better your odds, sometimes all it takes is having ONE lucky entry. When you submit your entry, you will see a confirmation message identifying the ticket number of the entry and telling you that your entry has been recorded. Just like when you play our other lottery games, drawings are random and there is no guarantee of winning. We wish you the best of luck for a future win!

Is every 20 points 20 entries or just 1NC Lottery
Hi Helen, different drawings require a different number of point per entry. In Tropical Treasure 20 points can be redeemed for one entry. Good luck to you!

Hey LZ, why do you only have 2 LUCK-E Rewards drawings now when there used to bd3? Also, now that stuff is reopening, don't you think it's time for Powerball and MegaMillions to return to normal?NC Lottery
Hi Tim, Lucke-Rewards drawings, game promotions, and second-chance drawings offerings vary. Currently Relax the Cash and Tropical Treasure are on-going in June. Make sure to check out the second-chance drawings too that are available including: Red Hot Riches, 007, Multiply the Cash, MGM Casino Cash, Supreme Cash, and Colossal Cash. You can also earn 2X the Lucke-Rewards points on all the new Bucks scratch-off in June. Game changes to Powerball are not made by individual lotteries. That means nobody at the NC Education Lottery made the change, nor did another state lottery make the change. All game changes are made by the national organization that operates the Powerball game. All lotteries offering the game must accept the changes.Thanks.

So when you enter points is it that your name is in the drawing for every 20 points that you enter. For example, 20 points equals one entry?NC Lottery
Hi Denise, the number of points needed for entry depends on the drawing you are entering. Tropical Treasure for example does take 20 points for an entry. Thanks and good luck to you!
