BOISE – One lucky player who purchased their Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle ticket in Ada County got a seven figure New Year’s surprise. The Idaho Lottery has confirmed the top prize winning ticket from last night’s Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle draw was sold from an Idaho Lottery retailer in Ada County. The winning number for the $1,000,000 prize is 108847. No one has contacted the Idaho Lottery regarding the $1,000,000 winner.

 

In addition to the top prize, the Idaho Lottery has also confirmed the location of the four $10,000 prizes from last night’s announcement. One of the $10,000 winners was also sold in Ada County and two from Oneida County along the Idaho-Utah border. Those winning numbers are: 188011, 040103, and 183104. Ticket number 178040 was sold at Gus’s Gas in Grand View. It was claimed by Lisa Martinez today.

 

“We strongly encourage everyone who played the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle to check their tickets carefully for winners,” stated Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. “We also remind all our players to sign the back of their raffle ticket. These tickets are bearer instruments that will be paid to the player presenting the ticket. We want to ensure each winning player claims their rightful prize.”

 

Players have 180 days to claim prizes in the game. The $1,000,000 prize, the four $10,000 prizes and the fifty $1,000 prizes must be claimed at Idaho Lottery Headquarters in Boise. In addition to the top fifty-five prizes, there are 4,400 prizes ranging from $100 to $25. These prizes can be claimed at any Idaho Lottery retail location.

 

To check their tickets for winning numbers, players can visit idaholottery.com, call the winning numbers hotline at 208-334-4656, or visit an Idaho Lottery retail location.

This year’s version of Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle returned $800,000 to the Idaho Lottery’s beneficiaries, Idaho public schools and the state’s permanent building fund.
