How to Play Millionaire Raffle

Millionaire Raffle players can win at four different prize levels by exactly matching their ticket numbers to the numbers drawn. Each ticket costs $20.

Each Millionaire Raffle ticket contains a unique, eight-digit raffle number issued sequentially across Pennsylvania from the PA Lottery’s central computer. No more than 500,000 Millionaire Raffle tickets are sold. When the final Raffle number is issued, or the sales deadline is reached, the game is closed and no additional tickets are available for purchase. Winning numbers will be drawn from all numbers sold.

How the Millionaire Raffle Drawing Works

An Automated Drawing Machine (ADM) randomly selects all of the 6,000 winning Millionaire Raffle ticket numbers. The ADM selection of the four, $1 million top-prize Millionaire Raffle ticket numbers and the four, $100,000 second-prize Millionaire Raffle ticket numbers is televised during the 6:59 p.m. drawing show.  The 100, $1,000-winning Millionaire Raffle ticket numbers and the 5,892, $100-winning Millionaire Raffle ticket numbers also are selected by the ADM, but these 5,992 winning ticket numbers are not televised due to time constraints. When drawing results are finalized, all winning ticket numbers will be available on palottery.com.

An ADM is a highly secure computerized system that generates numbers in a random manner.  ADMs have been used by lotteries for many years.  The Pennsylvania Lottery first used an ADM for the "Hearts and Diamonds" game in the mid-1990s and has used random number generation over the years to facilitate many of its Second Chance Prize ZoneTM drawings.

The Lottery currently uses an ADM to randomly select the numbers for the mid-day drawings of The Daily Number, Big 4 and Treasure Hunt terminal-based games.  Other lotteries, both in the United States and internationally, also use ADMs for the random selection of winning numbers.

The ADM is certified by Gaming Laboratories International, the world's premier gaming products and systems testing company.

During the Millionaire Raffle drawing, a Pennsylvania Lottery drawing official operates the ADM by pressing a button that activates the ADM to begin the winning ticket number selection process.  Viewers will see the eight winning ticket numbers for the top two prize tiers displayed during the evening drawing show.  In addition, the winning ticket information is printed in report form and properly recorded on certification forms by the on-site Certified Public Accountant.

The eight-digit Raffle number printed on the ticket must match the eight-digit Raffle number combination selected in the drawing – with all eight digits in the exact sequence in which they were selected – to be considered a winning ticket and to be entitled to a Millionaire Raffle prize.
