Only two top Millionaire Raffle prizes remain

LANSING, July 19, 2007 – Only two of the top Millionaire Raffle winners in the Lottery’s July 11 drawing have not yet claimed prizes.  The $100,000 winning tickets sold at Super One Foods in Escanaba and Dashmesh One in Lansing are still outstanding.

The Lottery’s most recent Millionaire Raffle winner claimants included an anonymous Waterford winner who purchased a $1 million ticket at the Meijer store in Waterford.  The lucky player, who picked up the prize money today, was out of town at the time of the win and just learned of his good fortune yesterday!

A lucky player who won $100,000 on a ticket sold in Bull Frog’s Bar and Grill in Ortonville claimed the prize on July 17.

Prior to today, 14 other winners of either $1 million or $100,000 have claimed their prizes:

Daniel Poole Sr. of Jackson; Calleen Neidling of Elmira; Lucky Smith Woods Lottery Club from Battle Creek; Dennes Vien of Negaunee; Mary Kramer of Muskegon; and a lottery club from Berrien Springs have all claimed $100,000 and About Time Lottery Club from Coleman has claimed $1 million.  Three anonymous winners have claimed $100,000 prizes and four have claimed prizes of $1 million.

The Millionaire Raffle drew numbers for six prizes of $1 million each; 12 prizes of $100,000 each; and 2,000 prizes of $500 each.  Only 600,000 tickets, at $20 each, were sold for the drawing, giving the game the best odds ever offered by the Michigan Lottery to win $1 million.

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.
