Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Give your luck a second chance by putting a non-winning Kentucky lottery ticket in the running for a big prize.

The Kentucky Derby Festival and the Kentucky Lottery are teaming up to create the first ever Festival Fanatic. The contest winner will receive 25 VIP festival experiences during this year's Derby.

In order to register for the contest, create a Fun Club Rewards account on the lottery website. Once logged in, submit a current non-winning $2 Kentucky Cash Ball or 5 Card Cash ticket.

Lottery and KDF officials say this is their best prize package yet.

"You get a chance to press the button that starts Thunder Over Louisville, ride in an aircraft that will be participating in the Thunder Air Show, be a judge in the slam dunk contest at the Derby Festival Basketball Classic, ride in a hot air balloon, and be on Millionaires' Row during Celebrity Day at the Down," said Kentucky Lottery spokesperson Chip Polston.

A contest winner will be drawn in March.
