Tickets Running Out For Minn. Millionaire Raffle
Dec. 13, 2013 – The Minnesota Lottery’s website shows that only 15 percent of tickets remain for this year’s Minnesota Millionaire Raffle. There are still more than two weeks left before the winning numbers are drawn, making a sellout very likely.
The Minnesota Lottery printed just 600,000 of the Millionaire Raffle tickets and began selling them Oct. 29. Now, after just over six weeks, only about 90,000 of the $10 tickets remain.
For Minnesota Lottery players, the quick sales may not come as a surprise. The Millionaire Raffle offers players the very best odds for winning $1 million. There’s two of the million-dollar prizes up for grabs this year, so the odds of winning either are just 1 in 300,000.
This year’s Millionaire Raffle won’t just help two lucky winners ring in the New Year’s though. In fact, the Minnesota Lottery has more than 100 cash prizes and more than 30 bonus prizes to award New Year’s Day.
Some of the most exciting of those bonus prizes are the three Ford vehicles that the Minnesota Lottery will raffle off to players. They’ve got brand new, 2014 models for three lucky winners, a Mustang convertible and the Edge and Explorer SUV’s.
The drop-top Mustang is valued at more than $43,000, the Edge is worth a bit more than $50,500, and the Explorer is valued at more than $52,000. The best part? The Minnesota Lottery is paying all the taxes on these brand new cars.
The Lottery also has 20 vacation packages up for grabs. Ten of these prizes are “luxury vacation” packages worth nearly $15,000 (including $3,000 in cash), and the other ten are “travel packages” including $3,000 in travel vouchers and $2,000 in cash.
The Millionaire Raffle will give away groceries, gas, gift cards and more on New Year’s Day, and it’s looking like tickets will sell out soon.
