Special Olympics raffles off $5 million Lake Sammamish dream home

See all photos Imagine landing a $5 million mansion on Lake Sammamish for just $150? It sounds too good to be true, but someone is going to score the dream house thanks to a new raffle to raise money for Special Olympics Washington.
The custom home spans over 10,000 square feet with five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a 7500 bottle wine cellar, a home theater and guest cottage. It boasts an expansive view and private dock.
The raffle is the biggest of its kind in Washington state history, says Dan Wartelle of Special Olympics Washington.
"We had to go to the Washington State Legislature to increase the grand prize amount," he said.
Tickets for the raffle are going for $150 each, $400 for three tickets and $550 for five tickets. Along with the house, the raffle also features 1,700 prizes including several new cars including a Mercedes and BMW, exotic vacations, consumer electronics and more.
Wartelle says Special Olympics is limited the total number of tickets to 85,000, giving buyers a 1-in-50 chance of winning a prize. And he says the odds of winning the house are better than winning the state lottery.
Tickets for the raffle are now on sale. The drawing will take place March 13.
So would you take a plunge on buying a ticket and possibly win the home?
