Florida man wins $5k second chance prize

A man from Winter Springs, Fla, is one of  many second chance prize winners from the Florida Lottery after a “second-chance” drawing made yesterday.

Ralph Nero won a $5,000 Simon Mall Visa gift card in the drawing for the “Treasure Tree” scratch card game.

Over 59,000 non-winning tickets were entered into the second chance drawing from December 15th last year to March 29th.

The previous drawing made on December 15, awarded nine second chance prize winners a $5,000 Simon Mall Visa gift card, 10 winners a $1,000 gift card and 30 winners a $500 gift card.

Sales of the $5 Treasure Tree scratch card finished on March 19th. The game has paid out over $13 million worth of prizes including jackpots of $250,000. Any unclaimed prizes have to be claimed within 60 days of the game finishing.
