PA Lottery Millionaire Raffle


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 will be 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.
