The Scratchers ticket plays like the television game show, and in addition to instant cash prizes, players can submit non-winning tickets into a second-chance promotion until March 30, 2010. In each of three drawings during this promotion, players can win cash prizes or the grand prize; a trip for two to Hollywood to audition for a chance to be a contestant on the Wheel of Fortune® game show. The first entry deadline is Jan. 12, 2010. For more information, visit the promotion page
