Make sure you get our e-mails!

To prevent spam, email providers like Google, Yahoo!, and MSN Hotmail have developed spam filters to give you greater control over what e-mails are delivered to you. Unfortunately, these filters can sometimes block e-mails you wish to receive. However, you can easily manage your email preferences to prevent your spam filter from block email messages that are not spam.

When you register to submit on-line entries for second chance drawings, there are two Internet domains that are important for you to ‘safe-list’ in order to ensure receipt of emails from our site. The Second Chance Bonus Zone is the domain that will be sending you an e-mail to confirm your registration. MDI Entertainment, which is the company managing the second chance promotion for the Lottery, will be sending notification e-mails to winners in the drawings. You should add the domain addresses 'secondchancebonuszone.com' and 'mdientertainment.com’ to your 'safe-list', 'white-list', or address book to ensure the emails do not 'bounce off' of any filters in place by your email provider.
