"We're excited to offer players this chance at winning $1 million, while supporting the VIP which supports the brave men and women across our state who have fought overseas."

Washington's Lottery will continue to support the VIP and the dedicated veterans returning from Iraq, Afghanistan and other posts around the world with the annual Veteran's Raffle.

"Since the VIP was started in 2006 we have helped more than 1,000 returning veterans with education, training, housing and other support to help them get back on their feet after long, difficult deployments," said WDVA Director John Lee.
