Top prize is a 2015 Cadillac® Escalade™
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Time is running out to enter the last second chance sweepstakes drawing for its Cadillac® & Cash scratch-off game* with the Grand Prize of a brand new 2015 Cadillac® Escalade™. The deadline to enter is October 27, 2014 (11:59 p.m. EST) for the final drawing on October 28, 2014.
To register, players should go to nylotterysweeps.com, and click on the corresponding Cadillac® & Cash icon where players can enter their non-winning Cadillac & Cash tickets to be registered for the second chance sweepstakes. In addition to the Grand Prize of a 2015 Cadillac® Escalade™, 40 lucky players will win $500 in cash.
The first second chance sweepstakes drawing for the Cadillac® & Cash scratch-off game took place on September 9, 2014. The winner of that drawing, Joseph Esoff of West Babylon in Suffolk County, chose the cash option for his prize and received a net check of $113,805.
The $5 Cadillac® & Cash scratch-off game (see attached copy of the ticket), offers players 12 chances to win the top prize of a new Cadillac® CTS™ and $500,000 in cash instantly. Cadillac® & Cash offers a new gaming experience for players to realize the dream of living the Cadillac® lifestyle. It is available through Lottery retailers throughout the State of New York.
“The Lottery’s Cadillac® & Cash scratch-off game is a fun and exciting game offering players the chance to go wherever they want to go, and to go there in a Cadillac. With the October 27 deadline for the second chance sweepstakes approaching, we encourage all of our players to enter to win the drawing for a brand new car,” said Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery.
The Cadillac® & Cash game launched in July 2014 and was supported through a statewide advertising campaign, including social media, as well as radio in English and Spanish, newspaper, digital, and out-of-home advertising. The launch advertising campaign for Cadillac® & Cash was created by the New York Lottery’s advertising agency, DDB-NY.
