  4. To enter a non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH or 50X THE CASH Scratch-Off ticket in one of the second chance drawings, players must enter on the Florida Lottery's website at www.flalottery.com. On the home page of the Lottery's website, players can click on the $10,000 E-X-treme Cash banner and follow the directions. Players will be prompted to log-in or register. The 24-digit ticket serial number (4-digit game number and 20-digit ticket number) is located at the bottom on the front of a 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH and 50X THE CASH Scratch-Off ticket under the latex covering. Players are to scratch off the latex covering to reveal the number and enter the entire 24-digit ticket serial number in the designated ticket entry area on the website.
  5. Each non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH and 50X THE CASH Scratch-Off ticket is assigned a predetermined number of entries that corresponds to the "X" value in the name of the non-winning ticket, as shown below.

    Ticket Price Point Cash Family Game Number of Entries
    $1 5X THE CASH 5
    $2 10X THE CASH 10
    $5 20X THE CASH 20
    $10 50X THE CASH 50

    Players may enter as many times as they wish during the contest period; however, each valid ticket number may only be used one time, for one entry in one 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 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH and 50X THE CASH 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 entered.

  6. In each of the three drawings, the first valid entry drawn will win the Grand Prize of $10,000. The second through twenty-first valid entries drawn will win a Second Prize of $500. The second through twenty-first valid entries drawn will be used in the order in which they were drawn and as needed to select an alternate Grand Prize winner in the event the Grand Prize cannot be awarded. Alternate winners will not be selected for Second 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 winner by telephone, U.S. mail or email using the contact information provided in the winner's registration data no later than one week after the winners are drawn. If the Florida Lottery is unable to contact a Grand Prize winner within sixty days 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 sixty days of the date of drawing, 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 will not be awarded. An alternate winner will be awarded the difference in cash between the Grand and Second Prizes. The Florida Lottery will attempt to notify each Second Prize winner by telephone, U.S. mail or email using the contact information provided in the winner's registration data no later than one week after the winners are drawn in order to confirm the winner's mailing address. If the Lottery is unable to contact a Second Prize winner within sixty days of the date of the drawing, the winner will forfeit his or her right to the prize and the prize will not be awarded. No alternates will be drawn for Second Prizes.
  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 Prize in a second chance drawing, the player must submit to the Florida Lottery the original valid non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH or 50X THE CASH 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. Winners must submit the required forms within one week of notification by the Florida Lottery that they are a winner. If a winner does not return the required forms within one week of notification, 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. Forms DOL 173-2 and DOL 173-2S are hereby incorporated by reference and may be obtained at any Lottery office, from the Florida Lottery's website at www.flalottery.com, or by writing to: Florida Lottery, Customer Service Division, 250 Marriott Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-4016.
