“The Pennsylvania Lottery is excited to bring back our New Year’s Millionaire Raffle for the 17th year. This is a highly anticipated game for our players, who will have two chances to win twice on each ticket,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “Most importantly, this game allows the Lottery to generate vital funds that benefit older Pennsylvanians. As we welcome the holidays and get ready to ring in the New Year, we remind the public to please gift responsibly. Tickets are not toys, and should not be given to children.”
The January 7 drawing will award 6,000 cash prizes totaling more than $5 million: four $1 million prizes, four $100,000 prizes, 100 prizes of $1,000, and 5,892 prizes of $100.
Ticket sales end Saturday, January 7 at 8 p.m. (unless sold out sooner). Only ticket numbers sold are included in the drawing. Ticket numbers are sold sequentially across the commonwealth, starting at 00000001 and ending at 00500000.
To be considered a winning ticket, the number on a Millionaire Raffle ticket must exactly match a winning number selected in the drawing, and all digits must appear in the same sequence as the winning number.
If all tickets are sold, each $20 ticket offers a 1 in 125,000 chance of winning one of the $1 million top prizes. The drawing’s overall chances of winning any prize are 1 in 83.
On January 7, winning numbers will be randomly selected by a computer and posted at palottery.com
after 10 p.m. Players should check each ticket using scanners found at Lottery retailers or with the ticket checker on the Lottery’s Official App
Eight weekly drawings will each award two prizes of $50,000. Players do not need to take extra steps to be eligible for these drawings, as each ticket purchased during that period will be automatically eligible for that week’s drawing:
- Drawing 1: Tickets sold from November 8 – 14
- Drawing 2: Tickets sold from November 15 – 21
- Drawing 3: Tickets sold from November 22 – 28
- Drawing 4: Tickets sold from November 29 – December 5
- Drawing 5: Tickets sold from December 6 – 12
- Drawing 6: Tickets sold from December 13 – 19
- Drawing 7: Tickets sold from December 20 – 26
- Drawing 8: Tickets sold from December 27, 2022 – January 2, 2023.
Winning ticket numbers for these Weekly Drawings will be posted each week at palottery.com. Players may also scan their ticket to see if they won.
Because a ticket is still eligible for the January 7 drawing, players are reminded to sign and keep their tickets. Winners should make an appointment to visit a Pennsylvania Lottery office
in order to claim their $50,000 Weekly Drawing prize in person and should not claim this prize at a retailer or by mail. PA Lottery Headquarters in Middletown remains closed to the public. See rules and claim instructions at palottery.com
