Virginia LotteryVirginia Lottery: Virginia Lottery New Year's raffle creates 3 millionairesRating:

By Todd Northrop

The Virginia Lottery's annual holiday raffle game, New Year's Millionaire Raffle, was drawn Sunday, and made three instant millionaires.

The winning numbers for all raffle prizes can be found on Lottery Post's Virginia Lottery Results page.

A total of 330,000 of the $20 tickets were available for purchase. According to the Virginia Lottery, all of the tickets were sold out prior to the drawing.

In addition to the three top jackpots of $1 million, other prizes include 6 winners of $25,000 and 300 winners of $500.

Each raffle ticket contains a unique, six-digit number issued sequentially across the state from the Lottery's central computer, starting with number 330000 and couning down to 000001.

The six-digit number printed on the ticket must match the six-digit raffle number combination selected in the drawing — in the exact sequence in which it was selected — to be considered a winning ticket.

The odds of winning a prize are one in 1,078.  All prizes are paid in lump-sum cash payments.

Winning tickets may be redeemed up to 180 days after the drawing date.

The closest I got to anything was 997 away from a $500 number.

But I'd rather be there than one number away.

Oh well, maybe next time.
