Million Dollar Raffle is Back
The Rhode Island Lottery’s Million Dollar Raffle Game is back for its second year. The $20 tickets went on sale, Sunday, October 4. With only 120,000 tickets available for sale again this year, the odds of winning $1 million are still the best in New England.
The Grand Prize Drawing is scheduled for New Year’s Eve* at Twin River. In addition to the million dollar top prize, there are multiple prizes of $10,000, and $1,000 to be given away that night.
Plus, there will be five Early Bird Drawings for $10,000 each leading up to the Grand Prize Drawing. These drawings will be held on October 22, November 5, November 19, December 3, and December 17. To be entered into the Early Bird Drawings, players only need to purchase a Million Dollar Raffle Ticket. The earlier they buy their tickets, the more chances they’ll have to win.
The $10,000 Early Bird winning numbers will be announced at Twin River at 8pm on the nights of the drawings. Winners need not be present to win, but if they are, Twin River will give them a Twin River prize pack.
More information on the Million Dollar Raffle and all of the winning numbers can be found on our Raffle page. Last year, all 120,000 tickets sold out before the Grand Prize Drawing, so the Rhode Island Lottery encourages players to buy early so they don’t miss out!
