Oct. 1, 2014 – In three months, one lucky Connecticut Lottery player will kick off the New Year as a millionaire. The Lottery this week began selling tickets for its Super Draw raffle.
The Super Draw is an annual raffle with a $1 million top prize, but with a very limited number of tickets. This year, the Lottery will sell only 275,000 tickets.
That means that the odds of becoming a millionaire are better with Super Draw than with any other game.
And the grand prize winner won’t be the only one with a few extra bucks on New Year’s Day. This year’s Super Draw has more than 2,100 prizes up for grabs.
Five lucky winners will score $20,000 second prizes, 25 third-prize winners will receive $1,000, 100 players will win $500, and there will be 2,000 prizes each worth $100.
That means that, if yours isn’t the lucky $1 million ticket, you’ve still got pretty good odds of winning $100 on the Super Draw.
Each ticket costs $10, and once they’re sold out, they’re gone! Super Draw tickets are available in Connecticut Lottery retailers right now, and the deadline to buy one is Dec. 28 – if they haven’t sold out by then.
