Louisiana Lottery creates millionaire in raffle draw

Louisiana LotteryLouisiana Lottery: Louisiana Lottery creates millionaire in raffle draw

By Todd Northrop

The Louisiana Lottery's finale drawing for its newest $10 raffle game, Millionaire Bonus Raffle, was held Thursday morning, creating one freshly-minted millionaire and several winners of $20,000.

Raffle number 021159 was randomly selected as the $1 million winner from the 275,052 tickets that were sold.

The complete list of winning numbers can be found on Lottery Post's Louisiana Lottery Results page.

The winning ticket was sold in Lafayette.

In today's finale drawing, one $1 million winning raffle number was drawn from those sold, along with 20 numbers worth $20,000 each.  There were also four bonus draws spread a week apart in March and April in which players could win $20,000 if they purchased their ticket before the bonus draw date.

In all, 26 players won $1.5 million in cash prizes.

Like a traditional raffle game, a limited number of tickets — 300,000 — were available for sale starting Feb. 28.  Of the available tickets, 275,052 (92% percent) were sold before the draw date.

"In celebration of our 20th anniversary, the Lottery is excited to pump up our raffle game with bonus drawings to reward our loyal players," explained Lottery President Rose Hudson. "With Millionaire Bonus Raffle, it's true that the early bird does get the worm."

Millionaire Bonus Raffle drawing winners, including those who won a bonus draw, must claim their prize at any of the Louisiana Lottery's six regional offices.

Unique raffle numbers were generated in sequential order from 000001 to 275052 (the final ticket sold).  Players could purchase more than one raffle ticket at $10 each, but each number printed on a separate ticket.

"For security purposes, we strongly suggest that players sign the back of their ticket immediately after purchasing and treat the ticket as cash," advised Hudson.

Raffle prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing in which the prize is won. All Millionaire Bonus Raffle prizes are subject to state and federal tax withholdings.

Because all 300,000 tickets were not sold before the finale drawing, the odds of winning the $1 million prize were better than expected, at 1 in 275,052.

        Congrats to the winners.

        I wish TN would have a raffle once in a while.

        But I know The Dragon Lady watches me like a hawk and now that she knows I want a raffle, it'll never happen.

        Ain't that right, Dragon Lady?

                Congrats to the winners.

                I bought several tickets, but I wasn't one of them.  Maybe next time.
