LANSING, October 7, 2011 – If you don’t win a cash prize on the new Wheel of Fortune™ Instant Lottery ticket, on sale October 10, you have a second chance!
Players who happen to buy a non-winning Wheel of Fortune™ instant ticket can still win a trip to Hollywood! How? Players must enter their ticket in the Player’s Club at www.michiganlottery.com to be eligible.
Three winners will receive a five-day, four-night excursion for four, which is just the start of the fun! The trip will include a non-broadcast Lottery-players-only game of Wheel of Fortune™ with Pat Sajak and Vanna White. The prize package also includes round-trip airfare to Hollywood, two deluxe hotel rooms, spending money and more! Plus, there is an opportunity for the winner to spin the Wheel of Fortune™ wheel to potentially win a cash prize of up to $1,000,000!
Tickets can be entered from October 10 until February 11, 2012 at the Lottery’s Player’s Club Web site which is free to join. With each ticket submitted, a Player can play the Wheel of Fortune™ interactive game to win even more entries!
In addition, players who are not selected as winners for the Hollywood trip can win up to $1,000,000 in the Wheel of Fortune™ Multi-State Second Chance drawing. All entries received between October 10 and August 20, 2012 are eligible (excluding entries selected as Hollywood trip winners) to be entered in a preliminary drawing. Three finalists from this drawing will be selected to be included in the Multi-State Second Chance Grand Prize drawing that will include finalists from other state lotteries. From this pool of entries, one winner will be selected to win at least $50,000 with a chance to win up to $1,000,000.
