BOISE, Idaho — One lucky person is starting out the new year as Idaho's newest millionaire.
The Idaho Lottery announced the winning numbers in the sold-out Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle Thursday night on Idaho's Newschannel 7.
This year’s $1,000,000 winning number is:

In addition to the $1,000,000 top prize, the Idaho Lottery also announced the two $10,000 prize winning numbers from this year’s game. They are:

1 4 1 1 5 9
According to the Lottery, this year’s game offered more prizes than any previous Raffle game, including 550 prizes of $200 and 6,800 prizes of $25.
For all 7,353 prizes, players can check their tickets for winners on the Idaho Lottery website, by calling the Idaho Lottery Winning Numbers Hotline (208-334-4656), using the Lottery’s free, mobile Check-a-Ticket app, or by visiting an Idaho Lottery retail location.
“As an Idaho-only game, the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle continues to be one of our most popular and fastest sell-out games each year," Lottery Director Jeff Anderson said in a statement. "We thank everyone who participated in making this game a success for the good causes we support that benefit all Idahoans."
Lottery officials say this year's raffle generated about $600,000 in dividend revenue to benefit Idaho Public Schools and the Permanent Building Fund.
Anderson added that all players holding raffle tickets should sign the back of them and keep them in a safe place until claiming their prize.
This year’s raffle included ten early bird prizes of $1,000. Each day for the first ten days of sales through October 30, 2018, the Idaho Lottery randomly selected winning tickets from daily sales. Only four of the prizes have been claimed so far, officials said.
