Sunday, September 1 2013 – Seven states have teamed up to offer a brand new million dollar raffle which will launch on September 8 and run over the Halloween holiday period.
Tickets to the Multi-State Millions Raffle, or the Halloween Raffle as it has been named, will be sold in Ohio, New York, Michigan, New Jersey, Indiana, Oklahoma and Iowa and will offer at least two prizes of $1 million. Better still, once ticket sales exceed $4.6 million, an extra $1 million prize will be added for every $2 million in sales! The raffle will be run by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) who also run the Powerball and Mega Millions draw games.
Ticket sales across all seven states will open on Sunday, September 8 for a cost of $10 each. The drawing will be made on Saturday November 2, so you don’t have long to wait to find out if you are one of the new multi-state raffle millionaires!
Ohio is celebrating their part in the raffle with a special additional bonus game, which will see one lucky player win a brand new Jeep Wrangler – complete with the tax paid! To enter the bonus game, Ohio players must simply use a special trailing ticket code when purchasing their multi-state millions raffle ticket.
