Seven California Lottery Players Win Second Chance Prizes Totaling More Than $2 Million!


SACRAMENTO – The California Lottery today announced its most recent group of lucky Replay Program end-of-game draw winners – seven lucky players who won a total of $2,155,500 in second chance cash.  

Thanks to the Lottery’s Replay Program, players who did not win a cash prize in their favorite Scratchers® game still have one last chance to win the top prize using the information from their non-winning ticket. The following players won top prizes in the listed end-of-game draws:

Hieu Luu / Fremont - $2,000,000 (annuity paid annually over 20 years) - Set for Life;
Russell Swartz / Bakersfield - $25,000 – Lucky Pairs;
Ernest Glavaz / Roseville - $15,000 – Diamond Dazzler;
Roger Minaker / Antioch - $500 – Moolah;
Charles Bigelow / Oxnard - $20,000 – Tripling Crossword;
Terry Watford / Chesapeake - $75,000 – Take 5;
Andrew Munana / Los Angeles - $20,000 – Tripling Crossword.

Remember, don’t throw your tickets away! The Lottery’s Replay Program gives players a second chance to win prizes with their non-winning Scratchers ticket codes. The rules are simple – players who purchase Scratchers tickets can enter their codes on the Lottery’s Replay website at for a second chance to win top prizes. Each ticket number can only be entered once. 

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 94 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. Since 2000, Lottery players have contributed $1 billion to public schools each year, and, since we began in 1985, Lottery players have contributed a total of more than $24 billion to education. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
