Jan 2, 2014- The Minnesota Lottery announced the winners of their New Year’s Day Millionaire Raffle drawing around 10:15 pm January 1.
The raffle awarded two lucky players $1,000,000 prizes, five players with $100,000, five other players with $25,000, and 100 players with $500 prizes. The Lottery also added some bonus prizes to give away such as three brand new Ford vehicles, a luxury vacation, a travel package, gift cards, and more.
Tickets for the raffle went on sale October 29 and all 600,000 were sold out by December 16. With the chance at winning one million dollars being 1:300,000 it only makes sense they would sell out so quickly.
