We’ve got a spring field of funds ripe for the picking!
Take a deep breath and smell the winning! It’s time to pick our new crop of Big Payback winners! For four weeks, winners were awarded $10,000 totaling $200,000. Now, we continue to thank our players with a red carpet, VIP event, “Playing With the Stars”! Fifty lucky guests were selected May 6, 2015 to attend this exclusive event. Thirteen of those 50 lucky finalists will be selected to win a combined total of $400,000 in prize money, including 10 $5,000 prizes, two $50,000 prizes and the grand prize of $250,000! A total of $600,000 in cash prizes will be awarded throughout the Big Payback promotion. DC Jackpot winners entered into the Second Chance contest from March 29 until May 5.
How were we able to reap such a giveaway? The Big Payback is funded by the DC Lottery’s Unclaimed Prize Fund. We know players don’t claim for a variety of reasons. That money goes into one big pot and we’re giving it right back to you with The Big Payback.
We’ve got a new bouquet of springtime winners. The DC Lottery announced on May 4 that Benny Lucas of Southeast, DC is the Lucky for Life $25,000 a year winner. His Lucky for Life winning ticket, guaranteeing the prize of $25,000 a year for life, was purchased at Mac Market & Deli located at 5158 MacArthur Boulevard, NW for the game held on Monday, April 20. The winning numbers were 44-23-45-17-35 and the Lucky Ball was 15.
Our scratcher winners are blooming too. We congratulated Juan Gutierrez, the $100,000 Big Money Playbook winner April 30 and Patricia Washington, the $100,000 Codebreaker scratcher winner April 29.
Looking to pick a winning scratcher? There are scratchers with top prizes remaining planted in DC Lottery retailers just waiting to be plucked and claimed! One of our newest scratchers, 50X the Cash, still has both $100,000 top prize tickets unclaimed. Also look out for the new scratchers 20X the Cash, with one $50,000 ticket remaining and the 2015 scratcher with one $100,000 prize remaining, in your favorite store.
