TALLAHASSEE - Just in time for the holiday season, everyone's favorite Florida Lottery Raffle game, Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE™, is returning. The $20 tickets are on sale today, and will remain on sale through Monday, January 2, 2017, or until tickets sell out, whichever occurs first. This year's Raffle will make seven players new millionaires on January 3, 2017! With only 750,000 tickets available statewide, Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE offers the best odds to win $1 million of any Florida Lottery game available.
"Players love this limited-time Raffle promotion because it offers the best odds to become Florida's next millionaire," said Florida Lottery Secretary Tom Delacenserie. "Seven $1 million prizes will be awarded in this year's Grand Prize Drawing; and those who buy early will have even more chances to win."
In addition to the Grand Prize Drawing, all Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets purchased by December 26, will automatically be entered into one of five weekly drawings for the chance to win prizes of $500, $1,000, or $10,000! Plus, for the first 100,000 Raffle tickets sold, every 40th ticket purchased statewide will be a $50 instant winner.
More than 4,200 prizes are available in this year's Raffle game. A total of 1,260 prizes will be available in the five weekly Raffle drawings; two $10,000 winners, 50 $1,000 winners, and 200 $500 winners in each draw. In the Grand Prize Drawing, seven $1 million prizes will be won, along with 527 other prizes ranging from $500 to $50,000. If all 750,000 tickets sell out, the odds of winning $1 million are one in 107,143. Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE is expected to generate approximately $4.97 million in revenue to benefit education.
