Don't Let Your Chance Pass You By!

March 26, 2019 Posted by NC Lottery at 12:11 PM

What would happen if you opened your email and found out you won $100? $500? Or, just what if, you had a cool $50,000 sitting in your bank account? Good news! You still have six days to enter our Lucke-Rewards and second-chance drawings.

After the April 3rd drawing, we’ll have 239 happy winners with one lucky player snagging $50,000. The only question you have to ask yourself is: Will I be one of them?

Luckily for you, there are three ways to win cash:


  • 5 Win Quick Cash is our weekly Lucke-Reward drawing. In just one month, we’ve awarded 4 winners with a prize of $100 each. Even if you’ve missed out on the last few wins, you can use your points in our 5th and final drawing! Each 10 points used gets you one entry into the drawing.
  • You can enter our monthly drawing, Lucky Cash Dash, with 20 points per entry and use as many entries as you have points! With 200 players winning $500 each, this might be worth the ‘dash’.
  • 2019 Multiply The Cash second-chance drawing is where you can make a lot happen. New shoes. College fund. New car. Home renovation. You choose! Instead of points, you enter your 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, and 50x The Cash instant ticket code into your Lucke Rewards account. You’re automatically entered into the drawing that will feature one $50,000, eight $5,000, and twenty-five $500 prizes.

You have until midnight on Sunday, March 31st to enter. Dreaming about all the ways to win is fun but make sure to go here and enter your points or tickets. Don’t have a Lucke Rewards Account? Get moving! If chosen for any of the cash prizes, you’ll be notified after April 3rd.

Life is full of possibilities. Don’t miss out on this one!

How do I register my 2nd Chance game I've already registered with the website but I don't see where to enter my ticket for the 15 time crossword 2nd Chance gameNC Lottery
Hi Katrina, all you need to do to is go to the website, then click name and then select the collect page. Once here you simply enter in your ticket information or if using the app scan the ticket for points and you will be automatically entered into the drawing.

Hello, I have a question. After a person wins a lucke reward drawing or a 2nd chance drawing are they unable to win again? Are there any restrictions? If you notify winners by email, are their (winners) emails put into a pool that allows the NCEL to know that they were previous winners?NC Lottery
Great question, Kimberly. Having good luck in one drawing does not disqualify a player from having good luck again in another drawing! You are, however, only eligible to win once per drawing. Hope this helps!

@OLIN S.: Sorry to hear you haven't been having more luck, Olin. We can assure you that winning a big prize doesn't disqualify you from being able to win again. The truth is, it takes a lot of luck to win a prize of any size. We wish you all the best.

Just seems like PCH I guess I enter about as much as anyone for years and never have I won...I have won 3 scratch offs of 1,000 over the years and often wonder if I am over looked because I was lucky enough to have won by a scratch off I have spent a lot of money through the years and still do not like break evens or The second chance drawings (guess because i have not won )but fell my odds of winning would be better without either being I spend the money for the tickets,and I wonder how many winners work at a store where they or a friend enter all the tickets that go in the Trash can .....It is the only game in town keep scratching.I also get frustrated when about every other month a big winner comes out before the TICKETS ever hit my area.......only the LORD knows pot luck???NC Lottery
Hi Olin, Please see our reply above.

Hi, I was wondering if there is a winners list for the 2nd chance drawing held on 4/3/19? I have been anxiously waiting to hear something to see if I won a prize after having 1500+ entries and being a faithful lottery participant and can’t find a thing online or anywhere. Does anyone know anything? I hate to say I had a good feeling about this drawing, but I really did. Lord knows I and so many others can use a little hit! NC Lottery
Hi there Kevin! Our team is in the process of notifying the winners now. Due to the high volume of winners being notified players can expect it to take a little bit longer than normal, so please continue to keep an eye on your email. As winners claim their prizes, we will update the Draws page with their information.

Hello. I have 2629 votes for second chance but i am on android so i dont know if winners have been notified yet. I was just wonderig if they have been displayed yet and im just not seeing it? NC Lottery
Hi Christopher- Winners names will not be posted until they come to claim a prize. Because of the high volume of winners, we are still completing the notification process for this last drawing. All of the winners should be notified in the next few days.

4/04/2019 11:54 - Kathryn T.

Have all the winners already been notified for the 2nd chance on multiply the cash? Thanks. NC Lottery
Good morning Kathryn, Due to the high volume of winners being notified from the Lucky Cash Dash drawing as well as the other drawings that took place on 4/3, players can expect a delay from the standard 48 hour notification period while our team works to notify everyone. We appreciate your patience!

Not able to see my entries for the second-chance drawings. Why ? NC Lottery
If you go under the winners tab you'll see that there is a drop-down box by the 'Second Chance drawings' section and 'Lucke-Rewards drawings' section. If you choose 'My entries' you should be able to find information about what you've entered. If you are still having trouble, please call Customer Service at 1-855-767-1863.

My fingers are crossed!!! I’ve been playing since I turned 18 and have yet to have my big break, other than when I was 18 and won a top prize but got ripped off by a retailer, but that’s a story for another time.NC Lottery
We're wishing you good luck, Monica. In the future, if you ever see anything of concern to you at a lottery retailer, we encourage you to call our security division at 888-732-6235.

Hi Carolyn, The winning Cash 5 ticket from Monday night's drawing was sold in Craven County. The numbers and letters you see at the bottom of your ticket just underneath the barcode is your Lucke-Rewards entry code. When entering tickets for points, you can either scan the barcode or manually enter that code. Let us know if you have any other questions!

The NCEL March Madness Money Giveaway is here. Did not do well with my College Basketball March Madness bracket. Hoping to go all the way with NCEL Lucky Dash Cash and 2019 Multiply The Cash drawings. NC Lottery
We're rooting for you, Herman!

3/26/2019 03:31 - William D.

just wondering. has anyone won a prize in each drawing at the same time yet? and are they allowed to win in different drawings on the same day?NC Lottery
Great question, William! That's not information we have on-hand, but you can always email to request a list of previous winners. Having good luck once doesn't disqualify a player from having good luck again--but, players are only eligible to win once per drawing. Hope this helps!

3/26/2019 03:26 - Sherian L.

LZ! Hey there! It seems that the Lucke Reaards option has disappeared as a choice from the drop down. Wasn’t quite sure if I was the only one. Second Chance is the only option right now. Thanks!NC Lottery
Hi Sherian, You're not the only one. Our web team is working on a fix now and we hope to have it back up very soon! But don't worry -- all of your entries are still there, the page is just not displaying correctly. We appreciate your patience!
