BOISE, Idaho — Just in time for 2022, one lucky Idahoan became the Gem State's newest millionaire Wednesday night.
The Idaho Lottery announced the winning numbers in the sold-out Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle on Idaho's Newschannel 7.
This year's $1,000,000 winning number is:
0 2 7 0 4 7
On top of the $1,000,000 grand prize, the Idaho Lottery also announced the two $10,000 prize-winning numbers from 2021's game. They are:
0 2 8 6 8 4
0 6 8 3 1 9
With 200 prizes of $200, 515 prizes of $50 and 14,282 prizes of $15 - in addition to the $1,000,000 and $10,000 prizes - this year's Raffle game offered more winners than any years past, according to Idaho Lottery officials.
For all 15,000 prizes, participating Idahoans can check their tickets for winners at idaholottery.com. They can also call the Idaho Lottery Winning Numbers Hotline (208-334-4656), using the Idaho Lottery’s free, mobile Check-a-Ticket app, or visit an Idaho Lottery retail location nearby.
This year's sellout of the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle shattered records. After tickets went on sale Oct. 21, it took just 34 days for 250,000 tickets to sell out two days before Thanksgiving.
“As a game sold only in Idaho, the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle, continues to be one of our most popular and fastest selling games each year,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. “We thank everyone who participated in making this game a success for the good causes we support that benefit all Idahoans, Idaho’s public schools and buildings. All players holding Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle tickets should sign them and keep them in a safe place until claiming their prize.”
All players holding winning raffle tickets are urged to sign the back and keep them in a safe place until claiming their prize.

Players automatically became eligible for these prizes once they purchased their ticket. In addition to winning $1,000, these tickets are also eligible to win additional prizes from Wednesday's draw.
