BOISE – Do you want a trick or treat?

Tickets for the Idaho Lottery’s seventh annual $1,000,000 Raffle will go on sale at 4 a.m. on Halloween.

“The Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle continues to be one of the most anticipated games of the year by our players and holiday shoppers,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director.  “This game is a gift giving tradition. With a lot of prizes and the best odds offered to win a guaranteed million dollars, we look forward to selling this game out before Christmas.”

Lottery officials say only 250,000 of the $10 tickets for the game will be sold.

Tickets will remain on sale until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2013 or until the last ticket is sold, whichever occurs first. The Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle has sold out three times before Christmas and five of the first six years.

Here are the prizes for this year’s Raffle game. In addition to the top prize of $1,000,000, there are four prizes of $10,000 and 4,450 other prizes ranging from $25 to $1,000:

  • (1)             $1,000,000
  • (4)             $10,000

  • (1,000)       $100
  • (1,000)        $50
  • (2,400)        $25

The $1,000,000 top prize, the four $10,000 prizes, and the fifty $1,000 prizes must be claimed at Lottery Headquarters in Boise.  All other prizes in the game may be claimed at any Idaho Lottery retail location.

“Over the years, many of our big winners have had Raffle tickets purchased throughout the entire run of the game, beginning as early as buying them on the first few days,” added Anderson.

Each day, for the first 27 days Raffle tickets are on sale in 2013, one player each day will have the chance to win $100 extra cash.  Players who purchase a raffle ticket during the first 27 days of sales will receive a voucher they can enter online at idaholottery.com for their chance to win $100.  Entries are only valid for the day entered.  New entries must be submitted to be eligible to win on subsequent days.

Anderson has some advice for people who are buying Raffle tickets as a gift.

“Tickets are bearer instruments and we pay whoever presents them.  If you are giving the ticket as a gift, we suggest you print that person’s name on the back of the ticket.”

The winning numbers for the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle be announced on Jan. 2, 2014 at 6 p.m. MT.

KTVB will post the information on our website once the announcement is made.
