Raffle tickets going FAST!

LANSING, March 13, 2007 – Lottery players are clambering for their best chance ever to be Michigan’s next millionaire!  After only one day of ticket sales, over 150,000 Millionaire Raffle tickets have been sold!

“The pace is phenomenal! The first Raffle sold out in 11 days, and this time tickets are selling even faster,” said Lottery Commissioner Gary Peters.

The Millionaire Raffle has six top prizes of $1 million, 12 prizes of $100,000 and a whopping 900 prizes of $1,000!  Tickets are $20 each.

The Raffle game, which went on sale Monday at 6 a.m., will sell only 600,000 tickets.  Once the 600,000 are sold, sales will close on the game.

The Millionaire Raffle drawing will be conducted on April 20 when 918 lucky numbers will be drawn.  The $1 million prizes will be announced during the evening drawing and all other numbers will be available through the Lottery’s Web site https://www.michiganlottery.com/ and at Lottery retailers and regional offices.

All proceeds from the Michigan 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.
