Arkansas Million Dollar Raffle Coming to a Close

Dec 05, 13 Arkansas Million Dollar Raffle Coming to a Close

Dec. 5, 2013 – The Arkansas Lottery’s Million Dollar Raffle, which went on sale back on Sept. 1, is in the final stretch.  The third and final Early Bird drawing was held Tuesday, leaving less than a month for players to join the action before the Grand Prize Drawing.

Since the first of the three Early Bird drawings for the Million Dollar Raffle, 33 winners have been named.  In each of those preliminary drawings, one winner scored a $10,000 prize, and 10 more were awarded $1,000 prizes.

Now, like the Arkansas Lottery’s Facebook Page says, “here comes the big one.”

One lucky Grand Prize winner will be awarded with the $1 million prize all of the Lottery’s players have been hoping for since the beginning of September.

Along with that million-dollar prize, the Lottery will be giving away $250,000 in smaller cash prizes to more than 100 winners.

Five Million Dollar Raffle tickets will be drawn for $100,000 prizes, ten more players will win $10,000, and 100 fourth-prize winners will score $500 prizes.

Players must buy their Million Dollar Raffle tickets by Dec. 31, two days ahead of the Jan. 2 Grand Prize Drawing.

The results of all three Early Bird drawings are posted on the Million Dollar Raffle webpage.  Players who purchased tickets in time for any of the Early Bird Drawings are still eligible to win a prize in the Grand Prize drawing, so don’t count out your tickets from the Early Bird drawings just yet, they could be worth $1 million.
