Pennsylvania Lottery's raffle makes 4 millionaires

Pennsylvania LotteryPennsylvania Lottery: Pennsylvania Lottery's raffle makes 4 millionaires

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

The winning numbers can be found at Lottery Post's Pennsylvania Lottery Results page.

Millionaire Raffle is a raffle game offered by the Pennsylvania Lottery, with only 500,000 of the $20 tickets available for purchase.

Each of the game's $20 tickets offers a 1-in-125,000 chance of winning $1 million. There was one drawing on July 9, 2011 to select four $1 million prize winners, four $100,000 prize winners, 100 $1,000 prize winners, and 5,892 $100 prize winners.

This is Pennsylvania's 12th raffle drawing.  The lottery has conducted two raffle drawings per year since its first raffle drawing on Dec. 31, 2005: one around New Year's Day and the other in July.

The odds of winning either a $1 million or $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 13, 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 contained 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.

                  Hey wait, I didn't get one !?

                  I only spend about $2 a week, $20 tickets might have better odds, but this guy knows his limits on spending.

                  Congrats to the winners !!!

                        Yes, dpoly1, I understand that route of thinking.  I thought that way about our Illinois' twice a year raffles. 

                        Quickly, I decided that since this raffle is ONLY twice a year, I'd buy ONE $20 raffle ticket for each of the two raffles. Maybe our fellow member, sirbrad, did the same and that is how he won one of PA's fourth raffle prizes.

                        Lovies

                        Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a lump-sum $3M gross dollar raffle in each state twice each year?

                        Having millions of dollars in my financial accounts means more, consistent fun for me.Lovies
