LANSING, August 11, 2008 – The Michigan Lottery’s Super Raffle tickets are now on sale!
With an entirely new level of prizes — 10,000 prizes of $100 each — the ticket is sure to be a quick seller. And the first 50,000 players to purchase tickets will receive $5 off the regular price of $50. The remaining 200,000 tickets available for the game will be $50 each.
In addition to the new $100 prize level, the Super Raffle will have two top prizes of $2 million each ($1,300,000 cash value), 20 prizes of $100,000 and 4,000 prizes of $500.
The drawing will be on or after October 6 and the date will be announced when the tickets are sold out.
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 the evening of the drawing 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 and $100 can be claimed at any Michigan Lottery retailer.
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. The tickets will be available at all Michigan Lottery retailers with the familiar orange terminals.
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.
