Idaho Lottery conducts first USA holiday raffle drawing of 2008
The Idaho Lottery conducted its $1,000,000 Raffle drawing Tuesday evening, and created one instant millionaire.
The winning numbers are available Lottery Post's Idaho Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/id).
In addition to the $1 million top prize, there will be four winners of $15,000, 500 winners of $300, and 150 winners of $100. All prizes are lump-sum cash payments.
A total of 250,000 tickets were available for the raffle at the price of $10.00 apiece. Sales of Raffle tickets began Nov. 7, 2008, and all the tickets were sold prior to the drawing.
The Raffle drawing, which took place at 9:59 p.m. MT, was broadcast live on five television stations: KTRV, KPVI, KLEW, KMVT, KSKN.
In addition to the prizes awarded with the drawing tonight, 1,500 tickets were instant winners of $50.
Upon purchase of a $1,000,000 Raffle ticket, at random, the Lottery terminals played "You are a raffle instant winner" for 1,500 ticket buyers, and awarded $50 instantly.
The instant winners were paid immediately at the retailer location.
Instant winners are also eligible to win any prize in the drawing.
$1,000,000 and $15,000 prize winners must claim their prizes at Idaho Lottery headquarters. The Lottery advises winners to call their office at 1-208-334-2277 with any questions.
$100 and $300 prize winners can redeem their winning tickets at any Idaho Lottery retailer.
