Nov. 1, 2013 – Friday at last, which for most means the end of the work week and the beginning of Halloween, round two. But belated Halloween celebrations aren’t the only ones people everywhere are watching the clock for.
Three big winners will celebrate a $1 million windfall from the multi-state raffle, in which seven states are participating. Still more multi-state raffle winners will celebrate $50,000 second prizes in the states without $1 million winers.
For more than 1,000 players in Oregon, the celebration may have already begun. The Oregon Lottery released the winning numbers from its Halloween Raffle at 8 p.m. Thursday. Along with one lucky $1 million winner, second prizes worth $20,000 and third prizes worth $100 were extra treats for Halloween.
Next week, once all the Halloween celebrations have ended, Kentucky will kick off its new Keno game. Terminals offering the bingo-style game will light up at 5 a.m. Monday morning, and players can start picking numbers for the $100,000 top prize.
And lest all the excitement around the spooky holiday distract you – don’t forget about Powerball and Mega Millions!
The Powerball jackpot rolled over to $60 million Wednesday night, and the Mega Millions jackpot rolled over for the eighth time Tuesday, reaching $87 million. If nobody wins the Mega Millions jackpot tonight, the prize is likely to reach triple digits.
Remember to buy your tickets before sales close ahead of tonight’s Mega Millions drawings and tomorrow night’s Powerball drawings, and don’t forget that you can download the free LotteryHUB mobile app for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
Players can win more with LotteryHUB Rewards, where players can earn points for using the app and redeem them as entries for LotteryHUB exclusive drawings.
Happy Halloween, good luck, and remember, you can’t win, if you don’t play.
