$25,000 VIP Rewards Drawing Winner in Maury City “Couldn’t Believe It!”
NASHVILLE— When her phone rang, Chandra Jelks had trouble believing that the person on the other end of the line was none other than Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery. Even more unbelievable was the reason for the call: Chandra won $25,000.
“I really couldn’t believe it,” said Chandra, a manufacturing tech who lives in Maury City. “I feel blessed and so lucky.”
Chandra won the prize by entering eligible Lottery tickets in the “VIP Players Suite,” a free online players club. Players earn VIP Rewards Points by entering eligible tickets, and they can use these points to enter VIP Drawings for a variety of merchandise, cash prizes, trips and more. It’s easy to enter with the VIP app—just download, become a member and scan eligible tickets.
Chandra says she enjoys playing Lottery games and has been entering her tickets for “quite some time.” And what will she do with her winnings? “The holidays are coming so it’s a great time for this,” she said, adding that she plans to save and pay bills.

Congratulations to Chandra!
