LANSING, November 8, 2009 – Not only do Michigan Lottery players have a chance to win millions of dollars in the Millionaire Raffle, but they have seven chances to win bonus prizes as well!

Millionaire Raffle, with prizes totaling $8.6 million, promises to be a hit with players because in addition to 6,018 prizes awarded in the drawing there are seven additional opportunities to win bonus cash prizes worth $25,000 a piece. Tickets are $20 each.

By simply purchasing a ticket, players are automatically eligible for the Millionaire Raffle bonus drawings. The bonus drawings will occur weekly beginning Wednesday, November 17 and continuing through December 29. One winning raffle number will be selected each week to win $25,000! The earlier players purchase their tickets, the more bonus drawings they qualify for. The bonus prize winning raffle numbers will be posted on the Lottery’s Web site, and the winners will still be eligible for the regular Raffle drawing.

Like previous raffles, the Millionaire Raffle features 600,000 tickets, each with a unique raffle number. The drawing will be conducted on or after January 5, when 6,018 winning raffle numbers will be randomly selected. The first six raffle numbers drawn will be awarded prizes of $1,000,000 each; the next 12 will be awarded prizes worth $100,000 each; the following 2,000 will be awarded prizes worth $500 each; and the last 4,000 selected will be awarded prizes worth $100 each.

Over 94 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 2010, the contribution to schools was $701.3 million. Since its inception in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $15 billion to education in Michigan.
