Third Top Prize Added to Multi-State Raffle
Oct. 31, 2013 – With the sales cut-off for the multi-state raffle looming, the Oklahoma Lottery announced Thursday that a third $1 million prize will be awarded during the Nov. 1 drawing.
Tickets for the raffle are available only in the seven participating states, New York, New Jersey, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Oklahoma. Five of those states have dubbed the raffle a “Halloween Raffle.” Ohio is calling it the Multi-State Millions Raffle, and Oklahoma has named their version of the game the National Millionaire Raffle.
Oklahoma Lottery Director Rollo Redburn said in a press release that the Lottery was “excited to add another million dollar prize to the raffle.”
“We encourage anyone that wants to participate in the raffle to get their tickets now,” Redburn said.
Tickets for the raffle are $10 in all seven of the participating states, and can be found at any regular Lottery retailer. Ticket sales for the multi-state game close at 11:59 p.m. Halloween night, and the final drawing will be held Nov. 1.
Once the final drawing chooses winning numbers for the three $1 million prizes, each state without a $1 million winner will hold its own drawing for a $50,000 second prize.
