Your Old New York Lottery Ticket Could Be Worth $500 A Week

Sponsored by

Don’t rip up that fruitless holiday scratch ticket just yet.  New York Lottery has rolled out their MAKE LIFE WONDERFUL Second Chance Sweepstakes this season, giving players with non-winning holiday scratch-offs the chance to walk away with $500 a week for life. FOR. LIFE.

Every dollar spent on an entered holiday scratch-off ticket counts as one entry. So the $20 holiday scratch-off ticket equals 20 separate entries into the sweepstakes, and you’re allowed to enter up to 100 tickets per 24-hour period. 

There’s one more drawing on January 12th, with a first prize of a $5,000 shopping spree, 100 second prizes of $200 in cash, and 100 third prizes of five $20 playbook scratch-off tickets. All entrants are eligible for the February 2 drawing for a chance to win the grand prize of $500 a week for life.

So take that non-winning holiday scratch-off and register online at with the ticket for your chance to win a second income. And you were going to throw that thing in the garbage?
