Get Ready for an Awesome August!
August is off to a winning start and it only gets better! This month, we’re bringing you so many awesome ways to win.
The Big Payback II has begun! Following the success of the largest single promotion in the history of the DC Lottery, The Big Payback II now offers multiple games to enter the Second Chance contest for your share of over $600,000.
For every $5 DC Lottery purchase on a single ticket (DC Scratchers and Tap-N-Play games are not included in this promotion), players will receive ONE entry into the Second Chance contest. Each entry will contain a special webcode to be entered online at dclottery.com. From those entries, the DC Lottery will award a $10,000 prize every weekday through September 4, 2015. Winners are announced at 2 pm and 8 pm on CBS radio stations WPGC and WNEW. Players can also enter webcodes until September 8, 2015 to enter into the VIP event and the Grand Prize drawing for BIG cash prizes up to $250,000! This promotion is funded by the DC Lottery’s Unclaimed Prize Fund. The fund is a repository for all monies unclaimed by DC Lottery winners.
