Idaho Lottery raffle made a millionaire tonight

Idaho LotteryIdaho Lottery: Idaho Lottery raffle made a millionaire tonight

By Todd Northrop

BOISE, Idaho — The Idaho Lottery conducted its annual $1,000,000 Raffle drawing Wednesday evening, and created one instant millionaire.

The winning numbers are available at Lottery Post's Idaho Lottery Results page.

In addition to the $1 million top prize, there were four winners of $25,000, 250 winners of $250, 500 winners of $100, and 1,750 winners of $50. All prizes are lump-sum cash payments.

A total of 250,000 tickets were available for the raffle at the price of $10 apiece. Sales of Raffle tickets began Oct. 15, 2010, and all the tickets were sold prior to the drawing.

About 26 percent of the game — or 64,000 tickets — were sold in the seven days before the last ticket was bought.

The Raffle drawing took place at 6:00 p.m. MT this evening.

Prize claims

Players can validate $250, $100, and $50 prizes at any open Idaho Lottery retail location on Wednesday night, or all Lottery retail locations when they open for business on Thursday morning.

"We are strongly encouraging all our players to sign the back of their raffle ticket prior to tonight's draw," said Anderson. "These tickets are bearer instruments and we want to ensure each player protects their play."

The $1,000,000 prize and the four $25,000 prizes must be claimed at the Lottery offices in Boise.

Players wishing to claim their prizes at Idaho Lottery Headquarters in Boise should note that Idaho Lottery offices will be open during regular business hours on Thursday, December 31, 2010 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain Time. The Lottery will be closed on January 1, 2011 for New Year's Day and will re-open again on Monday, January 3, 2011 at 8 a.m.

Prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing date.

    ONE 1 million dollar prize?? I thought Florida was lame.

    "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

          You're comparing the state of Idaho to Florida, which has a population that is several multiples higher??  Do you understand how raffles work?

          A $1 million prize for an Idaho raffle is excellent.

            Yeah, you're right. I bet money goes a longer way there. I love raffles and waffles! He..he.Green laugh

            I'll be trying Automatic Writing to get the winning lottery numbers.

            Automatic writing  is an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing. The words are claimed to arise from a subconscious, spiritual or supernatural source.

              Has anyone noticed their dates in the last paragraph are one year behind?

                I think Florida has 20 million and we in Idaho have about 2 million,I think a one million raffle is a very good jackpot for us.

                Thank you Todd
