Oct. 22, 2013 – Just six days remain until the Minnesota Lottery’s Millionaire Raffle kicks off this year, offering players great chances to win one of more than 100 big cash prizes.
This year’s Raffle will feature two $1 million top prizes, five $100,000 prizes, five $25,000 prizes, and 100 $500 prizes. But cash isn’t the only thing Minnesota Lottery players have a chance to win.
This year’s Millionaire Raffle also has some incredible bonus prizes, including new 2014 vehicles from Ford.
One of those prizes is a 2014 Ford Mustang convertible, and the Minnesota Lottery is going to pay the taxes for the winner. Along with three new cars up for grabs, bonus prizes include thousands of dollars in gas money and other gift cards, as well as some great vacation packages.
The Lottery will only sell 600,000 tickets for the Raffle. Ticket sales start on Oct. 29, and will remain open until Dec. 31, provided that Raffle tickets don’t sell out before that time.
The final drawing will be held on New Years Day 2014, and the winners will be announced on television three times that night: 6:59 p.m., 7:59 p.m., and 8:59 p.m.
Along with the more than 100 winners of big cash prizes, 38 winners will claim bonus prizes.
All tickets sold are eligible for the cash and bonus prizes, and tickets that win a bonus prize will still be eligible to win one of the cash prizes available.
