Minnesota LotteryMinnesota Lottery: Minnesota Lottery draws winning numbers in raffle

The Minnesota Lottery selected the winning numbers Thursday for its special "Millionaire Raffle" drawing.

The full set of winning numbers are available on Lottery Post's Minnesota Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/mn).

Millionaire Raffle is the third annual holiday raffle game from the Minnesota State Lottery.

Players purchased tickets for $10 each. Tickets went on sale Oct. 19 and were completely sold out by Dec. 28.  The raffle has sold out in each of its three years.

A total of 500,000 tickets were available for the raffle.

Lottery officials said that Minnesota Millionaire Raffle has the best odds of winning $1 million cash that they have ever offered. There are two guaranteed $1 million prizes, four $100,000 prizes, four $25,000 prizes, and 100 $500 prizes.

The game and prize format has remained the same for each of the three annual raffles.

    Check the Event Calendar.  It includes in-depth descriptions of just about every raffle being drawn between Dec. and Jan.

    They are just like raffles you might see anywhere, like a fund-raiser or something, except on a much larger scale, where the top prize(s) are normally $1 million.  The tickets are expensive, but in return you get the best chance of winning $1 million of any game available in the state.

        On Friday, his widow cashed in one of the tickets: a 10 Million winner which, in her grief over her husbands death, she had set it aside and almost discarted it before checking the numbers.
