Aerosmith® Second Chance Drawing Winners
Each Claim $5,500 in Cash
The winners of the first second chance drawing for the Aerosmith® Instant Game have claimed their prizes. The winners, Barbara DePasquale, Warwick, and Karen Iasimone, West Warwick, had the option of taking $5,500 in cash or a trip to Cleveland, Ohio, to party with Aerosmith® band members at the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame. These prizes were offered in place of the original prize associated with this drawing, which was the chance to see Aerosmith® live at Madison Square Garden. The concert date was cancelled by Aerosmith®, so these two winners went with the cash equivalent of the original concert trip.
The five dollar Aerosmith® Instant Game launched on July 31, 2009, and offers players the option of entering any non-winning tickets into multiple second chance drawings with prizes ranging from Aersosmith® prize packs to $35,000.
Iasimone said she only plays the games that offer her second chances to win and said she plans to use her winnings to pay off some bills. DePasquale wasn’t quite sure why she selected the Aerosmith® game to play when she decided to buy one on a rainy day. Plus, she almost didn’t send the ticket in until she figured there was no reason not to put it in the mail. Her children already have plans for the money, including some Christmas gifts they’d like to get this year. The next second chance drawing for the Aerosmith® Instant Game is scheduled for November 16, where 40 winners will win Aerosmith® merchandise prize packs. A full list of the drawing schedule and prizes can be found on the Rhode Island Lottery website, www.rilot.com.
