PHOENIX (Jan. 3, 2012) — The Arizona Lottery announced today that Millionaire Raffle tickets are sold out, one day before ticket sales were scheduled to end on Wednesday, Jan. 4 at midnight.
The 300,000 Millionaire Raffle tickets were sold in sequential order, and sales stopped when the final ticket was purchased today at a Circle K located at 4001 E. Chandler Blvd. in Phoenix. The limited number of tickets sold provides players with the best odds of winning $1 million or one of 1,100 other cash prizes.
“Millionaire Raffle is one of our most popular seasonal games, so it is not a surprise that tickets sold out early like they did last year,” said Kim McGlothlen, director of marketing and advertising for the Arizona Lottery. “We are very excited to meet the winners when they claim their prizes at the winner appreciation event on Friday, Jan. 6, after the Final Draw.”
Millionaire Raffle players will have the chance to win more than $3 million in cash prizes in the Final Draw, including the $1 million grand prize. In addition, the Final Draw will award six $100,000 prizes, 40 $10,000 prizes, 750 $1,000 prizes and 350 $500 prizes.
Millionaire Raffle winning numbers will be available at www.AZMillionaireRaffle.com the morning of Friday, Jan. 6.
On Jan. 6, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., winners can begin claiming their prizes at the Millionaire Raffle winner appreciation events at the Arizona Lottery offices in Phoenix and Tucson, where Arizona Lottery executives will be in attendance to congratulate winners. At the Arizona Lottery office in Phoenix, special appearances will be made by Windfall Willie and the Millionaire Raffle elf, along with mascots, dancers and more from the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks and Phoenix Coyotes.
