Tickets for Minnesota’s hottest holiday game on sale now

ROSEVILLE, Minn. (Oct. 24, 2017) – Tickets for Minnesota’s hottest holiday game—Minnesota Millionaire Raffle—are on sale now, offering the best odds to win $1 million in Minnesota.

The game, which originally debuted in 2006, continues to grow in popularity every year because of its raffle play style, limited number of tickets, guaranteed winners and, of course, the Lottery’s best odds to win $1 million.

In addition to two $1 million cash prizes, the Raffle game offers five $100,000 prizes, five $25,000 prizes, 10 $10,000 prizes, 100 $500 prizes and 4,000 $100 prizes.

New this year, the Lottery is partnering with some of Minnesota’s most well-known brands, including Polaris, Roseville Jeep,  Great Lakes Northern Outfitter, Sun Country Airlines, Duluth Pack, Schwan’s and the Minnesota Wild, to offer 53 merchandise prize packages that players can also win.

“This game is truly made for Minnesota,” explained Lottery Executive Director Robert Doty. “It’s not only a guaranteed win for thousands of players, but also for the state of Minnesota,” he said. “We are proud that for every Raffle ticket sold, approximately $4 goes directly to fund important environmental projects and other state programs that help make a difference in every county in Minnesota.”

Each Raffle ticket costs $10 and includes a unique six-digit number that players will have to match to one of the 4,175 winning numbers revealed on Jan. 1, 2018. Players can purchase Raffle tickets at any of the 3,100 Lottery retailers located across the state.

Players are encouraged to sign the back of their tickets upon purchase and keep them in a safe place until New Year’s Day.
