The New York Lottery's latest raffle-style game, the Turkey Raffle, was drawn today, Thanksgiving Day, and made five instant millionaires.
The winning numbers can be found at the following Web address:
New York's Turkey Raffle is a raffle game offered by the New York Lottery, with a limited period of availability and a limited number of $10 tickets.
Tickets went on sale Nov. 3, and ticket sales wee to stop Nov. 26 or earlier if the supply of tickets ran out.
The winning numbers were announced at 10:00 AM this morning, Nov. 27, 2008.
Each raffle ticket contains a unique, nine-digit number issued sequentially across the state from the Lottery's central computer, starting with number 100000000.
The nine-digit number printed on the ticket must match the nine-digit raffle number combination selected in the drawing — in the exact sequence in which it was selected — to be considered a winning ticket.
Winning New York Lottery tickets must be redeemed within one year of the drawing date.
