Barbara Pierce regularly enjoys playing Hoosier Lottery games, so when her caller I.D. recently displayed “Hoosier Lottery,” she knew she should answer the call.
The Hoosier Lottery representative on the phone told her she won a cash prize, and Barbara was excited. Then, the person on the phone told her she won $20,000. She was speechless.
Barbara won the highest prize on the first Cash4Life myLOTTERY 2nd Chance Promotion. In addition to her $20,000 prize, there were 10 winners drawn for $500 prizes.
“I always tell my kids, somebody’s got to win; you just have to play," Barbara said while claiming her prize at Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis.
Barbara is a particular fan of 2nd Chance promotions.
"My favorite part is that you can enter it again," Barbara said of her non-winning Cash4Life ticket. “It's always nice to get a second chance."
The money will go toward Barbara’s retirement. She also plans to treat herself to furniture and do something fun with her children.
Cash4Life 2nd Chance drawings occur quarterly. Players can enter non-winning Cash4Life tickets for a chance at cash prizes. The next entry deadline is April 23.
Cash4Life Overall Odds are 1 in 8. 2nd Chance promotion odds are dependent upon the number of entries received.
