To enter a non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH, 50X THE CASH or 100X 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 $50,000 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 below the play area on the front of a 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH, 50X THE CASH and 100X 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, 50X THE CASH and 100X 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.

    $2 10X THE CASH 10

    $25 100X THE CASH 100

    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 into 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 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. All entries are subject to validation by the Florida Lottery and may be disqualified if eligibility requirements are not met.

  6. In each of the three drawings, the first valid entry drawn will win the grand prize of $50,000. The second through fifty-first valid entries drawn will win a second prize of $500. The second through sixth valid entries drawn will be used in the order in which they were drawn 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. Notification.
    1. The prize winners in each second chance drawing will be posted on flalottery.com after the drawing.
    2. The Florida Lottery will attempt to notify the grand prize winner no later than twenty-four hours after the winner is posted on the Florida Lottery's website. Notification will be made by telephone, U.S. mail or email using the contact information provided in the winner's registration data. If the Florida Lottery is unable to have personal contact with the grand prize winner within ten business 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 the first alternate winner as set forth in subsection (6) above. If the Florida Lottery is unable to have personal contact with the first alternate winner within ten business days of the date of award of the prize, the alternate winner will forfeit his or her right to claim the grand 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 prize will not be awarded.
    3. 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 seven business days after the winners are posted on the Florida Lottery's website in order to confirm the winner's mailing address. If the Florida Lottery is unable to have personal contact with a second prize winner within thirty days of the date of the drawing, the winner will forfeit his or her right to claim the prize and the prize will not be awarded.
  8. How to Claim a Prize.
    1. To claim the grand prize in a second chance drawing, the winner must submit to the Florida Lottery the original valid non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH, 50X THE CASH or 100X THE CASH Scratch-Off ticket bearing the entry number selected in the drawing. Without such ticket, the winner will forfeit his or her right to claim a prize. The winner 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 a copy of acceptable identification. 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, 250 Marriott Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-4016. The required documentation must be received by the Florida Lottery no later than two weeks after the Florida Lottery has made personal contact with the winner. If the Florida Lottery has not received the required documentation from the grand prize winner by the fourteenth day after 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 in subsections (6) and (7) above.
    2. Second prize winners are not required to submit the original non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH, 50X THE CASH or 100X THE CASH Scratch-Off ticket or the documentation listed in paragraph (8)(a) above in order to claim the prize. However, a second prize winner who becomes an alternate winner of the grand prize will be required to submit the original non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH, 50X THE CASH or 100X THE CASH Scratch-Off ticket and the required documentation in order to claim the higher prize. Therefore, grand prize alternate winners should retain the original non-winning 5X THE CASH, 10X THE CASH, 20X THE CASH, 50X THE CASH or 100X THE CASH Scratch-Off ticket until notified by the Florida Lottery that the grand prize has been fulfilled.
