Play it Again! creates 23 winners who scored with this week’s second-chance drawing
NASHVILLE – Taking a second chance has paid off—to the tune of $1 million—for former Tennessean Joe Palmarchuk, a 64-year-old retiree who recently moved to Michigan for health reasons. “I moved to be close to family so they could help take care of me,” said Mr. Palmarchuk. “Now I can help take care of them!”
Mr. Palmarchuk, who has seven children and lived in Westmoreland, Tenn., for more than 15 years, is one of 23 winners who won more than $1.6 million in this week’s Tennessee Lottery’s Play it Again! drawing. Play it Again! is the Lottery’s program that gives players a second chance to play and win by entering eligible non-winning instant tickets. To “Play it Again,” simply visit www.tnlottery.com or www.tnvipsuite.com and follow the directions.
The $1 million win for Mr. Palmarchuk is due to his entering a non-winning Millionaire Jumbo Bucks ticket into the drawing. And he’s not the only one who is thrilled.
“This is the best news I’ve had in years,” said Matthew Lander, 38, of Chattanooga, who won $77,777 by entering a non-winning Sapphire Blue 7’s ticket. Mr. Lander, who works with the U.S. Postal Service, said: “I just feel a sense of relief!”
His excitement was matched, if not overshadowed, by that of Doris Brown, 66, who has farm in Greeneville. “Is this for real?” she asked Rebecca Hargrove, Tennessee Lottery President and CEO, during the notification telephone call. “You have no idea how much this will help me!” Ms. Brown won $20,000 from entering a non-winning $500 Fever instant ticket. “My prayers really are answered.”
