LANSING, May 7, 2007 – It’s time to go out and grab your Super Raffle ticket! The Super Raffle game went on sale today at 6 am and as of mid-morning had already sold over 27,000 tickets!
Super Raffle is the first of its kind in Michigan or any other state. The $50 ticket has two top prizes of $2 million, 25 prizes of $100,000 and 4,500 prizes of $500!
Not only does the game have great prizes, but since only 250,000 tickets will be sold, the odds of winning are the best yet! Super Raffle tickets are on sale at all Lottery retailers.
?Tickets are selling at a feverish pace and we’re thrilled to see players responding so well to the new game,” Lottery Commissioner Gary Peters said.
Although the Super Raffle is expected to be a success, it will not take the place of Millionaire Raffle. The next Millionaire Raffle game is expected to be launched in the fall.
The Super Raffle drawing will be conducted on June 18 and the two $2 million winning numbers will be displayed during the Lottery’s drawing broadcast that evening. Players will be able to check all winning numbers at the Lottery’s Web site on https://www.michiganlottery.com/, at Lottery retailers or at Lottery regional offices throughout the state.
All proceeds from the Super Raffle, as well as from all other Lottery games, 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.
