Non-Winning Lottery Tickets Turn Into Cash Prizes
$35,000 & $30,000 2nd Chance Winners
Two Rhode Island Lottery players claimed a total of $65,000 from second chance drawings that took place on Tuesday of this week.
Tara Belisle of Johnston, won $35,000 from The Price is Right® Instant Ticket 2nd chance drawing. She was in disbelief and mentioned she and her husband plan to celebrate their 10 year anniversary in Vegas, where they got engaged.
Additionally, a gentleman from East Providence, won $30,000 from the Rhode Island Hold 'em Poker Instant Ticket 2nd chance drawing. He was supposed to go to Georgia with his family yesterday but was so excited when he received the phone call that he won; he postponed the trip so he could come in and claim his prize.
Both winners logged into the Lottery's VIP Club and then entered the serial numbers from their non-winning The Price is Right® and Rhode Island Hold 'em Poker Instant Tickets on the second chance website.
