The Florida Lottery is launching the 25th Anniversary of the Millionaire Raffle, popular for the jackpot winners receive.
Only one million tickets will be sold in this high-stakes game.
The game offers the best odds of winning $1 million among all Florida Lottery games currently on sale.
The $20 tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 9, and will remain on sale through Sunday, Dec. 30, or until all one million tickets sell out – whichever occurs first.
"Florida Lottery players love Raffle games and this is a way to give back to our players,” said Florida Lottery Secretary Cindy O’Connell. “With six weekly drawings for $1 million and a $2 million Grand Prize, players will love this 25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE!”
How It Works
1.) Each ticket features a unique number that will be automatically entered into one of six weekly 25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE drawing(s) depending on the date of purchase.
2.) Weekly drawings will be held from November 19 through December 24, and the Grand Prize drawing will be held on December 31, 2012.
3.) Tickets purchased by December 23, 2012 will qualify for a weekly drawing and the New Year’s Eve Grand Prize drawing. Tickets purchased after December 23, 2012, will qualify only for the Grand Prize drawing.
Total Weekly Draw Prizes
*Estimated odds if tickets are sold proportionally throughout the promotion and if all MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets are sold. The actual odds of winning depend on the number tickets sold for each weekly drawing.
Grand Prize Draw Prizes
**Estimated odds if all MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets are sold.
25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE is expected to generate more than $6.2 million in transfers to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF) if the game sells out.
