Typically, one cash prize equal to the top prize of a specific game is awarded once that game's top prizes have all been claimed and the game is no longer sold.

To encourage gameplay and ease the sting of losing, the Tennessee Lottery's second-chance Play It Again! feature is one component of the Tennessee VIP Suite, a program that rewards frequent gaming. This free program allows players to earn points based on the number of non-winning instant tickets they enter; those points can be redeemed for nonmonetary merchandise and prize drawings specific to the Tennessee VIP Suite. The number of points a player earns for each entry is equal to the price of the ticket entered. Points redeemed for rewards do not affect the number of entries specific to the cash drawings.
Although there is no limit to the number of tickets a player can enter for each specific second-chance cash drawing, a player can only earn a maximum of 5,000 VIP points in a calendar month and redeem a maximum of 100,000 points in a calendar year.Learn more about Contests & Gambling
