Feeling lucky? Try Washington State Lottery's new lottery game.
Lottery officials announced a brand new game in honor of its 25th anniversary. Starting this Sunday, the odds of becoming an instant millionaire is about to go way up.
You've never seen a Washington lottery ticket like this one.
"Each raffle ticket will have a number printed on it that will be your number and it will be between one and 375,000," said Jacque Coe, Washington State Lottery. "When they're sold out, they're gone."
That's right — only 375,000 tickets will be sold. According to the odds, if you buy one of these raffle tickets, you have one in 125,000 chances of winning, compared to a normal lottery, which are around one in 6.9 million.
"Chances are we probably won't offer this type of game very often," said Coe, "And when I say probably, not more than one every 6 months."
Residents like the odds, but not the $20 price per ticket so much.
"I think it's probably good and a lot of people would do it because the odds are so much better," said one resident, "but not me."
Washington State Lottery hopes to inspire those people who normally don't buy lottery tickets to purchase these raffle tickets. The raffle tickets go on sale this Sunday. There will be three $1 million winners, which will be announced on November 15.
