NASHVILLE - There’s still time to register for a chance to win one of 12 cash prizes to be given away in the first “Play it Again!” drawing, which will be held Monday, July 9. The event is part of a new program designed to help the environment while giving Tennessee Lottery players a second chance to win prizes from non-winning instant tickets.

“This is the first program of its kind in the country, and we’re especially excited about this kick-off drawing,” said Rebecca Paul Hargrove. “We’ve had incredible participation and look forward to the evolution of Play it Again!”

Each drawing for Play it Again! will be different. Details about the first drawing are as follows:
•One prize of $20,000 will be drawn from all “Hearts are Wild” ticket entries.
•One prize of $10,000 will be drawn from all “Junior Jumbo Bucks” ticket entries.
•Ten entries will be drawn from a pool of all tickets submitted and each will receive $1,000.
•Deadline for eligible entries will be midnight, Sunday, July 8. Any entry received after the deadline will be entered into the next drawing for which it is qualified.
•Winners will be posted on the Play it Again! website following the drawing and will be notified by the Tennessee Lottery using contact information provided during program registration.

To “Play it Again,” players simply register non-winning instant tickets via the internet ( Then click on the Play it Again! icon … and that’s all there is to it—no need for postage, envelopes, or even to keep the ticket. Once the ticket is registered, the Lottery asks players to dispose of tickets properly. For added convenience, players may register at one of the Lottery’s five district offices in Chattanooga, Johnson City, Knoxville, Memphis and Nashville.

The Tennessee Lottery began selling its first tickets on January 20, 2004. As of March 31, 2007, the Lottery has raised over $842 million to fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
