The Million-Dollar Raffle is a Numbers Game that is a more modern version of a traditional raffle. For $10, the player will receive one 10-digit raffle number. The raffle numbers sold are sequentially numbered and will be available for purchase Nov. 17, 2008 - Jan. 17, 2009,* or until all 300,000 raffle numbers are sold out, whichever occurs first! The Lottery will hold a drawing among all the raffle numbers sold to draw the $1,000,000 winner and other prizes.
With the extremely good chances and the limited number of tickets, the Million-Dollar Raffle game will sell out quickly.
Million-Dollar Raffle tickets are easy to buy. There are no playslips; the raffle numbers are sold across the state in sequential order from #0700000001 to #0700300000. Just ask the clerk at your favorite retailer location for a Million-Dollar Raffle ticket. He or she will generate a ticket like the sample show here and you'll have your chance to win $1 million.
