Six North Carolinians play for $50 million today in Las Vegas

Six North Carolinians are currently in Las Vegas dreaming about what they would do if they won the $50 million grand prize in The Price is Right Come on Down Challenge, which takes place later today.

“It is a ludicrous number,” Indian Trail resident Kimberley Miller said in reference to the amount she could win. “The first half goes to charity and then I’m going to travel.”

The six winners from North Carolina entered their The Price is Right scratch-offs into two second-chance drawings to win the free trip to Las Vegas for them and a guest. Winners arrived on Monday and will stay in Las Vegas until Thursday.

“It is insane that we are all standing here right now,” Miller said. “I am just so happy to be here.”

The Come on Down Challenge will feature several classic games from the popular game show including Punch a Bunch, The Big Wheel, and Plinko.

To win the $50 million, a player must make it through the Punch a Bunch and The Big Wheel rounds to Plinko and then land on the $50 million prize.

Michele Dorsey, a Dallas resident, said she can’t stop thinking about winning the $50 million.

“I need that $50 million,” Dorsey laughed. “I want a brand new Volkswagen Beetle convertible, cobalt blue.”

Dorsey said the chance to compete in The Price is Right Come on Down Challenge means so much to her.

“I watch The Price is Right every single day that I am not at work,” she said. “I have been watching since I was a little kid.”

Mary Shipman-Lindsey of Kernersville said she initially couldn’t believe it when she saw she won the chance to travel to Las Vegas to compete in the challenge.

“I was so excited I was just like, ‘Oh my goodness, I actually won,’” she recalled. “It has just been awesome from the time I got the notification and it became a reality.”

Shipman-Lindsey also admitted that she has been thinking about winning the $50 million.

“I can’t tell you how many times I have already spent that money,” she laughed. “I have it all planned out. I am trying not to tear up because I am just that excited.”

Was wondering, how the winners do in LAS Vegas? They win anything, other than the trip to Vegas?NC Lottery
Hi, Roger! Each of the winners won $1,000 but did not advance past the first round of the Come On Down Challenge.

How can I find the winnersNC Lottery
Hey there, Peggy! These winners were from The Price Is Right second chance drawing, so their names were displayed on the drawing page under "Winners", but we have since moved those pages to make room for our new second chance offerings!

Hi, Carolyn! We did notice that the LuckyForLife.us site was changed, but that site is not run by us. That site is managed by the Multi-State Lottery Association that oversees Lucky For Life. Sorry about that! To answer your other question, the drawings are conducted using a digital drawing system and they are done nightly in Connecticut. :)

A fitting tribute to Bob Barker's legacy of gaming. RIP to him and a thank you for the morning entertainment over the years especially on sick days and holidays from school and work.

I bet the most the win is a $5000 trip that they will have to pay 33% tax on. This sounds like a rip off to me. Anybody that has DIRECTV will not get to see it because that station and Direct Tv have been in a contract dispute for a couple months now. Good luck on watching it if you have DIRECTV.
