Washington Lottery holds Thanksgiving Raffle draw

Washington LotteryWashington Lottery: Washington Lottery holds Thanksgiving Raffle draw

By Todd Northrop

The Washington Lottery conducted its third-ever raffle drawing Thursday, appropriately named the Thanksgiving Raffle.

A complete list of winning numbers for the drawing can be found at Lottery Post's Washington Lottery Results page.

Thanksgiving Raffle tickets went on sale October 17.  Only 250,000 of the $10 tickets were made available for sale.

Unlike most raffles conducted around the United States — including the last Washington raffle held in 2008 — the top prize is not $1 million.

Instead, the Washington Lottery created a larger pool of smaller prizes, so that a higher percentage of tickets would win a prize.

The top prize in the raffle is $50,000.  A total of twenty such prizes will be awarded.

In addition, 200 tickets will win the second prize of $250, and 2,500 tickets will win the $50 prize.

The overall odds of winning a prize in the Thanksgiving Raffle are 1 in 92.

There were also 30 instant prizes of $500 awarded during the sales period.  Any ticket winning an instant prize is also still eligible to win a main drawing prize.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

       This is a sign of a goof faith.Other Lottery Company's should also do the same.Customers feel well-come when they are appreciated!

      I Agree!

      There are no born heroes or winners........it takes a hammer a chisel,a vision and a will to suffer the blows and be carved into one!..........
