Sept. 30, 2013 – Tonight is the last chance Arkansas Lottery players will have to enter into the first Early Bird drawing for the Arkansas Lottery’s Million Dollar Raffle.
The Arkansas Lottery began selling tickets for the Million Dollar Raffle Sept. 1, and as September draws to a close, Arkansas Lottery players have just a few hours before they’ll miss the cutoff for the first of three Early Bird drawings.
Each of the three Early Bird drawings will be giving Million Dollar Raffle players a shot at a $10,000 top prize, or one of ten $1,000 second prizes.
Tickets purchased by midnight tonight will be eligible for all three Early Bird drawings and the final drawing.
Winning an Early Bird drawing does not make a ticket ineligible for the final drawing, which will decide the winner of a $1 million grand prize and $650,000 in smaller prizes, starting at $100,000.
The final drawing will be held January 2, and the Early Bird drawings will all be in the beginning of the months leading up. Tomorrow, Oct. 1 will be the first Early Bird drawing. The second will be held Nov. 5, and the third will be held Dec. 3.
Results for tomorrow’s Million Dollar Raffle Early Bird drawing should be available at retail locations or on the Million Dollar Raffle page at myarkansaslottery.com by “midday or earlier” tomorrow, according to the Lottery’s website.
