The winning numbers for the Maryland Lottery's first-ever raffle were selected on New Year's Day, 2007.
The Maryland Lottery added the game to its product mix on November 20th with the launch of Countdown to Millions, a $20 raffle-style game. Unlike other lottery and jackpot games, Countdown to Millions offers a limited number of tickets designed to be sold in their entirety prior to awarding prizes.
There were four million-dollar winners, and many winners of prizes ranging from $500 to $50,000. The full list of winning numbers is posted at at:
In total, 420,000 Countdown to Millions tickets were made available for purchase, and of those, 812 are winners.
The odds of winning the $1 million top prize is 1 in 105,000, which is the best odds of winning a million dollars offered by any Maryland Lottery game.
