LANSING, October 11, 2007 – The Super Raffle game is on the brink of a sell out! As of Thursday afternoon, less than 10,000 tickets remain.
“With only 10,000 tickets left, the game could sell out over the weekend,” said Acting Lottery Commissioner Tom Weber.
The game went on sale Monday, September 17 with only 250,000 tickets up for grabs and the best odds ever to win $500!
Two top prizes of $2 million (annuitized); 25 prizes of $100,000; and 4,500 prizes of $500 each! The Super Raffle drawing is scheduled for Oct. 22 or within 10 days of the tickets selling out.
Tickets are $50 each and can be purchased at any Lottery retailer, including Club Keno locations.
Players should watch the Lottery’s Web site for an announcement of when tickets are sold out and on what date the drawing will be conducted.
The Super Raffle, which is the fifth Raffle game offered by the Lottery, offers odds of 1 in 125,000 of winning $2 million. Overall odds of winning at least $500 in the Super Raffle are a mere one in 55.
Super Raffle tickets will be issued in numerical order, starting with 000001. Sales will stop when ticket number 250000 has been sold. Players cannot choose their own numbers and numbers must be in the exact order drawn to be winners.
Winning numbers will be available on the Lottery’s Web site on the afternoon of the drawing. Players will also be able to check numbers at Lottery retailers or Lottery regional offices at that time, and the winning numbers for the $2 million prizes will be announced during the Lottery’s broadcast that evening at 7:29 p.m.
Winners of $2 million and $100,000 prizes will need to make an appointment with the Lottery’s Public Relations Division to claim their prize; $500 prizes can be claimed at any Michigan Lottery retailer.
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.
