Drawing to be held Jan. 3
MIDDLETOWN, Penn. — The last ticket for the Pennsylvania Lottery's Jan. 3 Millionaire Raffle was sold Saturday at 10:21 a.m. at McCunes News, 606 Central Avenue in Johnstown, Cambria County.
Sales of Millionaire Raffle tickets began on Oct. 27 and were to continue until 5 p.m. on Jan. 3, or until all 500,000 tickets were sold.
The winning raffle ticket numbers will be randomly selected at 7 p.m. on Jan. 3 when the Lottery's live drawing show will televise the selection of the four $1 million raffle ticket numbers and the four $100,000 raffle ticket numbers.
The selection of the remaining 5,992 winning ticket numbers will not be televised live due to time constraints.
A complete list of all 6,000 winning raffle ticket numbers will be available the following day on Lottery Post's Pennsylvania Lottery Results page, and at Lottery retail locations.
To be considered a winning ticket, the eight-digit number printed on a Millionaire Raffle ticket must match the eight-digit combination selected in the drawing, in the exact sequence in which it was selected.
Lottery officials remind Millionaire Raffle players to sign the back of each ticket and keep tickets in a safe place until the Jan. 3 drawing.
Each of the game's $20 tickets offers a 1-in-125,000 chance of winning $1 million — the best odds ever offered by the Pennsylvania Lottery for winning a million dollars. The Jan. 3 raffle drawing will award four top prizes of $1 million cash; four $100,000 cash prizes; 100 prizes of $1,000 cash; and 5,892 prizes of $100 cash. A total of 6,000 prizes worth $5,089,200 will be awarded.
Odds of winning a $100,000 prize are 1-in-125,000; 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.
