LANSING, November 6, 2008 – The holiday season just got a little merrier! The Lottery’s Millionaire Raffle is back and better than ever.
As with Millionaire Raffles past, a limited number of tickets, only 600,000 total, will be sold.
Early birds will save $2 on the $20 tickets. The first 100,000 tickets will sell for a discounted $18 each and the remaining 500,000 tickets will be sold for $20 each. Millionaire Raffle tickets will go on sale at all Lottery retailers at 6 a.m. on Monday, November 10.
With 6,018 prizes to win, the Millionaire Raffle still has the best odds ever to win $1 million! Prizes will be awarded in one drawing to be conducted no earlier than January 5 and six prizes of $1 million, 12 prizes of $100,000, 2,000 prizes of $500, and 4,000 prizes of $100 will be given away!
Millionaire Raffle tickets will be available at all Michigan Lottery retailers, including Club Keno retailers. Six-digit tickets, beginning with 000001, will be issued in numerical order as sales occur across the state. When ticket number 600,000 is reached, sales will close. Players will not be able to choose their own numbers and must match the exact number as drawn by the Lottery.
Players will be able to check winning numbers on the Lottery’s Web site at https://www.michiganlottery.com/, at Lottery retailers or at Lottery regional offices throughout the state.
Players with winning tickets of either $1 million or $100,000 will need to contact the Lottery at 517-373-1237 to schedule an appointment to claim their prize.
All proceeds from the Millionaire Raffle, as well as 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 2008, the contribution to schools was over $740 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
