$1,000,000 Spectacular Second Chance Deadline Fast Approaching
The Louisiana Lottery Corporation reminds players that the entries for the $1,000,000 Spectacular Second-Chance Drawing must be received by Monday, April 2.
To be eligible for the drawing, nonwinning $1,000,000 Spectacular tickets must be received at the drawing address on the back of the ticket by Monday, April 2. Then on April 4, five finalists will be drawn to compete for the $1 million prize during the $1,000,000 Spectacular Drawing to be held on April 27.
The Lottery will conduct the second-chance drawing for the $1 million top prize during intermission at the Baton Rouge Downtown Merchants Association's Live After Five concert on Friday, April 27. The free concert, featuring the band After 8, begins at 5 p.m. with the $1,000,000 Spectacular Drawing to occur at 6:30 p.m.
The event will be hosted by E! Entertainment red carpet interviewer and popular game show host Todd Newton, who also starred in the Lottery television commercial promoting the $1,000,000 Spectacular scratch-off game.
One finalist will win $1 million and each of the other four finalists will win $5,000. The $1 million prize is an annuity payable in 20 annual installments of $50,000. The winner also has the option of choosing a single cash payment of $670,000. All prizes are subject to required withholdings.
Lottery tickets purchasers and second-chance drawing entrants must be at least 21 years of age. All nonwinning second-chance drawing entries will be destroyed after the finalist drawing.
Live After Five is the premier downtown social concert series, featuring the hippest and hottest bands, held every Friday afternoon during the spring and fall.
