NASHVILLE - For Nashville’s Fibi Youssef, winning a trip to Hollywood and a chance to play one of her favorite television game shows is a dream come true. “I always dreamed I’d go, but I didn’t think it would be this soon!”

Fibi, originally from Egypt, is the Tennessee Lottery’s second winner of a trip to Hollywood that will mean winnings of between $5,000 and $25,000 and a chance to play “Deal or No Deal,” which offers an opportunity to win up to $1 million.

Fibi says since she has stopped jumping up and down, she has been able to think about the win. “But, I still don’t know if I believe it!”

It’s all part of the Tennessee Lottery’s “Deal or No Deal” instant ticket game. Not only can players win up to $100,000 instantly, they can register non-winning tickets for a chance to be one of four Tennessee players to go to Hollywood. The “Deal or No Deal” instant ticket game also includes a final second-chance drawing from non-winning entries for a prize of $1 million. This Grand Prize Drawing will include finalists from all other participating lotteries and will be held on Sept. 17, 2008.

Since the Tennessee Lottery began selling tickets on Jan. 20, 2004, it has raised more than $1 billion to fund specific education programs, including college scholarships, pre-kindergarten and after-school programs.
