Previous games in the Raffle series, which has included two Super Raffles and four Millionaire Raffles, have been very successful and the Lottery expects a similar response to this game.
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 on the night of the drawing.
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.
Over 95 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to retailers. In fiscal year 2007, the contribution to schools was $748.9 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $14.3 billion to education in Michigan.
