LANSING, June 9, 2010 – The Lottery’s newest game, the Red Hot Raffle is here, just in time for summer!
On sale June 14, the Red Hot Raffle is sure to be a popular summer ticket because it gives players more opportunities to win cash prizes than any other raffle! The ticket price is the same as the Lucky 7s Raffle, just $10, but there is half the quantity available for purchase, only 500,000. Over 26,000 winning tickets will be selected, which means the overall odds for players to win a prize are 1 in 19!
On or after August 4, over 26,000 winning tickets will be selected. Ten winning tickets will be awarded a cash prize of $100,000; 100 winning tickets will be awarded a cash prize of $10,000 each; 1,000 winning tickets will be awarded a cash prize of $100 each; and 25,000 winning tickets will be awarded a cash prize of $20 each. That is over $2.5 million in prizes to thousands of very lucky winners!
Six digit tickets, beginning with 000001, will be issued in numerical order as sales occur across the state. When ticket number 500,000 is reached, sales will close. Red Hot Raffle tickets will be available at all Lottery retailers, including Pull Tab and Club Keno locations.
Following the drawing, all Red Hot Raffle results will be available on the Lottery’s Web site at https://www.michiganlottery.com/.
Over 98.5 cents of every dollar spent on Michigan 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 2009, the contribution to schools was $724.5 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
