Montana Lottery holds New Year's raffle drawing

Montana LotteryMontana Lottery: Montana Lottery holds New Year's raffle drawing

By Todd Northrop

The Montana Lottery held its annual New Year's Day raffle drawing today, creating one new millionaire and several more winners of lower prizes.

The winning numbers for Montana's Millionaire Raffle can be found on Lottery Post's Montana Lottery Results page.

Millionaire Raffle is a raffle-style game offered by the Montana Lottery, with a limited number of $20 tickets.

With only 125,000 tickets sold for the raffle, Millionaire Raffle offers the best odds to win $1 million of any Montana Lottery game.

In fact, the Montana Lottery offered 25,000 less tickets than last year, so the odds of picking a winner were even better.

There is one drawing on Jan. 1, 2011 to select one $1 million prize winner, four $100,000 prize winners, and four $10,000 prize winners.  In addition, one "Early Bird" winner of $5,000 was drawn on Nov. 26 from all the tickets purchased up to that point.

Also, a total of 200 instant prizes of $50 were awarded during the purchase period for the game. For every 625th ticket sold, one lucky person won $50 on top of the chance to win any of the other prizes drawn on New Year's Day.

The Lottery encourages all winners to sign the back of their ticket immediately, and store in a safe location until they are able to present it at Lottery Headquarters for payment.

The Lottery will be open again on Monday, January 3, at 8 am.

It took last year's winner some five months to claim the prize.

The Montana Lottery ran some humorous advertisements this year to spread the word about the raffle.  You can play each advertisement video below on most Web browsers and modern mobile devices.

Congrats to the winners, I like the little add on of every 65th winner getting 50 bucks.

I really like the rabbit also.

Congrats to the 2018 Graduates.
