8. How will the 2nd Chance Promotion drawings work? How will I be notified if I win?

The Hoosier Lottery security team will conduct six separate drawings for each of the event locations. For each drawing, five winners will randomly be selected from the pool of eligible mylottery Hoosier Millionaire 2nd chance entries. Winners will be notified in writing via an email and/or via phone, if a phone number has been provided. Please see the Hoosier Millionaire 2nd Chance Promotion Rules >.
Make sure your mylottery preferences are updated with the best phone number and email with which to reach you!

The winning Hoosier Millionaire 2nd chance promotion codes will be posted within 48 hours of each drawing date listed above. As the winners claim their prize, the appropriate codes will be replaced with the winner's name and hometown.

 

9. If I’m selected as a contestant, will I be participating in the event closest to my residence? If not, will I be reimbursed for my travel expenses?

Not necessarily. The 2nd Chance selections for contestants will be drawn at random and will not be assigned to an event location based on proximity to your residence. All selected contestants will receive $500, which can apply to travel expenses.

 

10. If I have a conflict or am unable to participate in the event selected, am I eligible to participate in one of the other events?

In the event a promotion winner is unable to attend the assigned Road Show Event due to unforeseen and reasonable circumstances, the promotion winner may assign a proxy. The promotion winner shall receive any prizes won by the proxy.

In the event a promotion winner elects to not attend the event nor assign a proxy, the contestant prize will be forfeited and awarded through an additional on-site 2nd Chance drawing. The promotion winner will only receive the cash prize of $500.

 

11. How much can you win at the events vs. the Championship Show?

In the regional event shows, you can win a cash prize from $1,500 to $29,500.
At the championship show, you can win up to $1,000,000.

 

12. I wasn't selected as a contestant through the 2nd Chance mylottery promotion. Do I still have a chance to participate in the 6 live events?

Yes. One final contestant will be selected on-site at all 6 live regional event shows. Entry is a non-winning Hoosier Millionaire scratch-off that has not been entered through the mylottery 2nd chance promotion. Must be 18 or older to participate.

 

13. Can I use the same ticket I entered into the mylottery promotion to enter the on-site drawings at an event?

No. Any non-winning ticket you bring to enter in the on-site drawings must NOT have already been entered in the mylottery 2nd Chance Promotion, or it will be deemed ineligible.

 

14. What happens if nobody wins the $1,000,000 grand prize at the Championship Show?

If the $1 million prize is not won during the 25th Anniversary Championship Show, there will be a drawing for the $1 million prize.  The final entry deadline will be 11:59 pm (ET) on the 20th day of the month immediately following the 25th Anniversary Championship Show. Drawing date to be held within 10 days following the entry deadline. See the Hoosier Millionaire 2nd Chance Promotion Rules >.

 

15. I am unable to attend the events, but would like to watch them. Will they be televised or available on the web? When will the televised finale air? What times and channels?

We expect the Championship Show will be televised by our draw stations across the state; however, details are not finalized. The Championship Show will air after the event takes place. Once dates and times are finalized, they will be announced on this page.

 

16. Will any of the previous hosts participate in the events?

Yes, we are excited that Tony Lamont, Mark Patrick and Barbara Hobbs have agreed to participate in the events.

 

17. I would like to attend the events with my children under 18. Is this allowed?

Yes, any one of any age can attend the events, but only adults 18+ are eligible to purchase Hoosier Lottery tickets and to participate in the regional events or finale.

 

18. Do I need to keep my tickets? Can I just keep the part of the ticket that has the code?

Yes. Keep your non-winning tickets that you've entered because they are eligible for all 2nd chance event drawings.
No. Please keep your whole ticket and keep it intact. Partial tickets will not be accepted for claiming of a prize.
