Six lucky Long Islanders are heading to Las Vegas after being randomly chosen as part of the first New York State Lottery Monopoly Millionaires’ Club second-chance drawing.

Winners will receive a five-day, four-night trip to Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas to compete against other state participants for a chance to win up to $1 million in prizes on the syndicated "Monopoly Millionaires’ Club" television show, hosted by comedian Billy Gardell.

John Canova, of East Meadow; Jose Cruz, of Hauppauge; Matthew Snyder, of Massapequa Park; Gary Worrell, of Hempstead; Frank Chara, of Long Beach; and Donna Schechter, of Westbury, will be representing Long Island as part of New York’s 26 total winners.

The next second-chance drawing will be held on Jan. 13, 2015. To be eligible for a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas, qualifying entries must be submitted on by Jan. 6.

The show will air nationally next February.
