Michigan: more raffle draws than any other state
The Michigan Lottery's Millionaire Raffle is back in action, now with its tenth drawing conducted.
The complete list of winning numbers for the latest raffle draw can be found on Lottery Post's Michigan Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/mi).
The $20 raffle tickets went on sale Nov. 10, and a total of 600,000 were available for the drawing. All the tickets were sold out prior to the draw.
In the drawing held earlier today, 6,018 raffle tickets were randomly selected to win any of four different prize amounts. The top prize was a $1 million annuity, paying out equal installments over 20 years.
Other prizes include 12 prizes of $100,000, 2000 prizes of $500, and 4000 prizes of $100. The overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 100.
The first 100,000 tickets printed were sold at a discounted price of $18 each, in what has become a Michigan Lottery tradition to kickstart sales.
Once the tickets sold out, no additional tickets were made available for purchase.
First big winner already claims prize
Just hours after the drawing of the Millionaire Raffle, the first winner has claimed $100,000.
An anonymous player from Grand Rapids didn't believe his luck when he checked his raffle ticket number. The lucky winner plans to take a vacation down south with the prize money.
The winning ticket was purchased at Party World, 5568 Alpine Ave. NW, Comstock Park.
This is the third winning Raffle ticket Party World has sold. Previous winning tickets include $1 million in the June 23, 2008 Millionaire Raffle and $1 million in the Jan. 2, 2008, Millionaire Raffle.
