Holiday Millionaire Raffle Sells Out for Sixth Year in a Row

Kansas Lottery players again showed their enthusiasm for the Kansas Lottery's Holiday Millionaire Raffle by purchasing all 175,000 tickets well before the drawing date. This is the sixth year for the Kansas-only game.   Ticket number 175000 was sold at 9:57 a.m. on December 25.  The $20 tickets went on sale September 5, 2014.

"We want to say a big 'thank you' to the players who purchased tickets and the retailers that sold the tickets, for making this another successful Holiday Millionaire Raffle," said Kansas Lottery Executive Director Terry Presta. "Now it's on to the big grand prize drawing!"

The Holiday Millionaire Raffle Grand Prize drawing will take place December 31. One lucky ticket will be worth $1 million!  There will also be 25 $5,000 winners, 25 $1,000 winners and 2,500 $100 prizes. Players must retain their tickets to claim a prize!  

All 175,000 tickets are automatically entered in the grand prize drawing, including the ten tickets that won $10,000 each in the five early bird drawings and the 5,000 tickets that were $50 instant cash bonus tickets.

The $1 million grand prize winning Raffle number will be announced at 11:56 a.m. December 31 on these stations: Kansas First News (Topeka), KSHB 41 Action News (Kansas City) and KSN 3 (Wichita).

A list of all winning Raffle numbers will be available on shortly after noon on December 31 so players can check their tickets against the winning ticket numbers.
