LANSING, May 8, 2007 – In just one day, over half of the 250,000 Super Raffle tickets available have been purchased! Tickets went on sale Monday at 6 am and as of early Tuesday, over 126,000 have been sold.
With just under 125,000 tickets remaining tickets could sell out as early as today.
“Players who want a Super Raffle ticket should get out there and grab one today!” said Lottery Commissioner Gary Peters.
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.
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.
