Pennsylvania Lottery Millionaire Raffle results

Pennsylvania LotteryPennsylvania Lottery: Pennsylvania Lottery Millionaire Raffle results

The Pennsylvania Lottery's latest raffle-style game, Millionaire Raffle, was drawn Saturday, and made four instant millionaires.

The winning numbers can be found here:

http://www.lotterypost.com/specialresults/pa-lottery-raffle-2008-07-05.asp 

Millionaire Raffle is a raffle game offered by the Pennsylvania Lottery, with a limited number of $20 tickets.

With only 500,000 tickets sold for the raffle, Millionaire Raffle offers the best odds to win $1 million of any Pennsylvania Lottery game.

Each of the game's $20 tickets offers a 1-in-125,000 chance of winning $1 million.  There was one drawing on July 5, 2008 to select four $1 million prize winners, four $100,000 prize winners, 100 $1,000 prize winners, and 5,892 $100 prize winners.

The odds of winning $1 million and $100,000 prizes are 1-in-125,000; the odds of winning a $1,000 prize are 1-in-5,000; and the odds of winning $100 are 1-in-85.

The overall odds of winning any prize are 1-in-83.

Tickets first went on sale May 1, 2008, and were sold out prior to the drawing.

Each raffle ticket contains a unique, eight-digit number issued sequentially across the commonwealth from the Lottery's central computer, starting with number 00000001. The last raffle ticket issued for the game will contain the raffle ticket number 00500000. The eight-digit number printed on the ticket must match the eight-digit raffle number combination selected in the drawing — in the exact sequence in which it was selected — to be considered a winning ticket.

Lottery Post's unique Millionaire Raffle results page allows the player to view the raffle results with or without the extra "00" prefix on each number, depending on whether the player feels the extra zeros are a help or hindrance.

All prize levels are paid out in cash, including the jackpot.

All 100 winning tickets of $1,000 and all 5,892 winning tickets of $100 can be validated and paid at any numbers games retailer.

Players with winning tickets worth $100,000 and $1 million must file a claim for payment.

Winning tickets may be redeemed up to one year after the drawing date, or until July 4, 2009.

    Raffles are not "crap games".  In fact, I am quite certain that if you won the $1,000 you would not refer to it as a "crap game".

    Edit: PA has had 5 raffles so far, if memory serves.  Have you played any other games 5 times in a row without winning?  Are they "crap games" too?

      Yes I have played many other games and lost, however those games were not $20.00 a play either. I played all 5 raffles and none paid anything back, despite such good odds. Others I paid $1.00 or $2.00 and still won some big amounts at times. So until I see some kind of payback, it is a crap game.

      A $1,000 would be nice, but not what I was playing for. The million dollars, I mean $750,000, is what I was shooting for. All the other prizes were just consolations to me.

        No winning ticket for us either, but it’s a gamble just like the other games. I will keep trying!

          Sorry, it just doesn't make sense to me.  AFAIK, you've never won a million dollars, playing any game.  If you don't want to risk $20 to have the best odds of winning a million dollars, I don't see how it makes a raffle a bad game.  Don't play it then.

            I have to agree Todd, I have already bought a 20 dollar scratch ticket and won nothing, and correct me if I am mistaken, a scratch ticket would have worse odds than the raffle?

            If a person does not normally take 20 dollar chances on the lottery, then its best to not take a 20 dollar chance on the raffle although it has good odds, one must be prepared to lose, its called gambling!

              The big thing about raffles is that they offer the best chance at winning a million dollars, but not the best chances of winning any prize.  So for people who get a good feeling from winning a $1 or $2 prize, it's probably not going to be very satisfying.  But I would never play a raffle for that.

              You know the saying "You have to be in it to win it"?  With a raffle that's the idea, and you have a better shot at winning it all.
