BOISE – The Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle is one of the most widely anticipated games from the Idaho Lottery every year. Sales on the popular game began this morning at 4:00 a.m. Mountain Time. Just like year’s past, there are only 250,000 tickets at $10 each for this year’s Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
“Idaho Lottery players enjoy playing Idaho-only games,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. “The Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle has produced an Idaho Lottery millionaire every year. And after fourteen years, it’s still the best chance for players to win a million, guaranteed.”
Last year’s version of the game sold out on December 20, 2019 – five days prior to Christmas. It was the fourth time the game sold out prior to Christmas, selling out the earliest since the initial Raffle did in 2007 and making it the fourth fastest selling Raffle game in Lottery history.
“We remind everyone to have fun, but remember, it does only take just one ticket to win,” added Anderson.
Besides the guaranteed top prize of $1,000,000, there are over 14,000 additional prizes ranging from $15 up to $10,000. This year’s game features 14 daily $1,000 winners during the first 14 days of sales chosen at random from the previous day’s sales. The game also features ten, $1,000 prizes mid-game for players who purchase one of the ten 25000th tickets.
Players who win one of the first fourteen days’, $1,000 prizes must claim their prize at the Idaho Lottery offices in Boise. Their ticket will remain eligible to win additional prizes in this year’s Raffle, including the $1,000,000 top prize.
Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle tickets will remain on sale until December 31, 2020 at 11:59 pm Mountain Time or until the 250,000th ticket is sold.
