Michigan Lottery players have a chance to win a big jackpot and help Michigan veterans and their families by playing the new Veterans Day 50/50 Raffle.
The Lottery has teamed up with the National Guard Association of Michigan to launch the Veterans Day 50/50 Raffle on Sept. 28. A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will benefit the lives of Michigan veterans and their families.
Tickets for the Veterans Day 50/50 Raffle may be purchased at Lottery retailers starting on Sept. 28. Players may purchase a single play for $5 each, five plays for $20, 15 plays for $50, or 40 plays for $100. Tickets for the raffle will be sold until 11:59 p.m. on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
The Veterans Day 50/50 Raffle jackpot drawing will take place on Nov. 12. One lucky player whose number matches in exact order the number drawn by the Lottery wins the huge jackpot.
The Veterans Day 50/50 Raffle jackpot will grow with each ticket purchased. Fifty cents of each $1 wagered will be added to the jackpot. Players may check the amount of the growing jackpot by visiting www.michiganlottery.com.
In addition to the jackpot drawing, bonus drawings will be held each week starting Oct. 7 and run through Nov. 4. Each bonus drawing gives players a chance to win $25,000. Players automatically are entered in the bonus drawings when they purchase their tickets. Players will be eligible for all bonus drawings after they purchase their Veterans Day 50/50 Raffle tickets. Players who win the bonus drawings still will be eligible for the jackpot drawing.
