Final $1 million Raffle prize claimed

LANSING, February 1, 2007 – Nearly a month after the January 3 Millionaire Raffle drawing, the fifth $1 million prize has been claimed.

The lucky winner, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased the winning ticket at JB Bamboozles, 14323 Michigan Ave., in Dearborn.

Only one of the 10 tickets worth $100,000 is still unclaimed.  All winners have one year from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.

The Millionaire Raffle is a Lottery game like you’ve never played before!  A limited number of tickets, only 500,000, were sold at all Lottery terminals across Michigan beginning November 12, 2006.  Each ticket sold contained a unique six-digit number from 000001 to 500000.  In a single drawing which was held on Jan. 3, 765 raffle tickets were randomly selected to win the following great prizes:

  • 5 grand prizes of $1,000,000 each (annuitized over 20 years) 
  • 10 prizes of $100,000 each 
  • 750 prizes of $1,000 each 

The Millionaire Raffle offered players the best chance ever to win $1,000,000.  With odds of just 1 in 100,000 of becoming one of five new millionaires, it’s the most $1,000,000 prizes ever awarded in a Michigan Lottery game!

All proceeds from the Lottery are contributed to the state School Aid Fund which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan.  In fiscal year 2006, the contribution was $688 million.
