Vickie Dobernig of Dry Prong had her nonwinning SAINTS GOLD scratch-off selected from more than 10,000 entries in the Louisiana Lottery’s first second-chance drawing held Sept. 20 to win a  Saints Fly Away Prize Package to the Nov. 6 game against San Francisco, including two tickets, round-trip airfare, pregame field passes, two nights’ hotel accommodations and $500 spending cash.

“I’m so excited to have won,” said Dobernig. “I never win anything and am a huge Saints fan, so this is definitely a treat for me!”

In addition to Dobernig, three additional winners were drawn to receive a Saints Suite Access Prize Package, including a set of four suite level tickets to the Nov. 13 game against Denver: Rhonda G. Barattini of Ponchatoula, Cora Bergeron of Belle Chasse and Bob Allen of Lacombe. 

Celebrating the New Orleans Saints 50th season, the Louisiana Lottery launched $5 SAINTS GOLD — its eighth consecutive Saints-branded scratch-off game on Aug. 8. SAINTS GOLD features three anniversary-themed scenes emblazoned in shiny gold metallic ink. Players have the chance to win cash prizes, including one of four top prizes of $100,000, plus the opportunity to enter nonwinning tickets into a series of second-chance drawings to win unique game-day prize experiences or official autographed Saints merchandise.

The next second-chance drawing deadline is Oct. 17. Entries received by this date will be eligible to win the 2016 Tunnel Team Prize Package, including four Plaza Club Sideline tickets, four pregame field passes to be on the field as the Saints come marching in ahead of the Nov. 13 game against Denver, one night hotel accommodation (two rooms), a parking pass and $500 spending cash. Nine additional drawing winners will receive an official autographed Saints jersey, football or helmet. 

To enter the second-chance drawings, players should complete the information on the back of nonwinning $5 SAINTS GOLD scratch-off tickets and mail one ticket per envelope (no larger than 4.5" by 9.5") to the drawing address printed on the back of the ticket. Players can enter as many times as they wish, but each entry should be mailed in a separate envelope.
