Idaho LotteryIdaho Lottery: Idaho Lottery offers free ticket deal

Special deal is for Tuesday and Wednesday only

BOISE, Id. — Just in time for the late holiday season shoppers, the Idaho Lottery is offering a two-day special for players on Tuesday and Wednesday this week only.

All day on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 players that purchase a $10 Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle ticket will receive a free Mega Millions ticket and a have chance at that night's $145 million jackpot.

All day Wednesday, December 22, 2010, players that purchase a $10 Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle ticket will receive a free Powerball ticket and a chance at that night's $35 million jackpot.

"This is a special offer that highlights three of our more popular games and is a way to say thank you to our players for a great year," said Idaho Lottery Director, Jeff Anderson. "The Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle will create the Lottery's 24th millionaire since we began operations in 1989."

The Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle, the season's most popular Lottery game, is currently 80% sold out.

"We have heard many people are buying raffle tickets to give as stocking stuffers," added Anderson. "If you are giving the ticket as a gift, it's a good idea to write the person's name on the back of the ticket."

As an Idaho-only game, Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle tickets are only available for sale through all 900 Idaho Lottery retail locations. This game is not sold in any other state, however, players do not need to be Idaho residents to play or win. The odds of winning $1,000,000 remains the same at one in 250,000, the best ever odds offered by the Idaho Lottery for a seven-figure prize.

This year's Raffle features over 2,500 prizes. In addition to the top prize of $1,000,000, there are four $25,000 prizes, two hundred and fifty $250 prizes, five hundred $100 prizes, and one-thousand seven hundred and fifty $50 prizes.

The Idaho Lottery is emphasizing to all players they need to sign their Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle tickets and keep them in a safe place until the draw.

This year's winning numbers announcement will take place at 6:00 p.m. Mountain Time on December 29, 2010. The Raffle results will be published on Lottery Post's Idaho Lottery Results page soon after the draw.

I just got a Free Mega Millions ticket with Megaplier for purchasing a $2 Scratch Off ticket in Pennsylvania.
