The Oregon Lottery today held the state's fourth raffle drawing — the first it has held around the 4th of July.
Despite being named the 4th of July Raffle, the game was drawn today, July 1. One winning number, 195945, was chosen for the game's top prize — $1 million. There were also 20 second prize winners of $20,000, and 1,000 winners of $100.
A complete list of winning numbers for the drawing can be found at Lottery Post's Oregon Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/or).
Raffle tickets went on sale earlier this year, and cost $10 each. The complete inventory of 250,000 tickets was sold out prior to the drawing.
All $100 prizes can be paid at any Lottery retail location, but the $20,000 prizes and the $1 million grand prize must be collected at the Lottery office at 500 Airport Road SE in Salem during regular business hours or by mail (registered mail recommended).
Winners have one year from July 1, 2010 to claim their prize.
The limited number of tickets available gave players better odds than traditional lottery games such as Megabucks and Powerball. And unlike those games, the raffle guaranteed there would be winners.
