Bonus Millionaire Raffle is similar to the Lottery’s first raffle, Millionaire Raffle, in that it offers limited ticket sales and the best odds for players to win $1 million, but the new game gives players the added excitement of four Bonus drawings. The next Bonus drawing will be held on Sunday, May 15. Tickets purchased from Sunday, May 1 through Saturday, May 14 will be eligible for the May 15 drawing.  All tickets entered into the Bonus drawings (including winning tickets) will be eligible for the final Millionaire Raffle drawing on July 1.

Bonus Millionaire Raffle is a typical raffle-type draw game – tickets will contain a unique six-digit number (players cannot select their own numbers). Only 280,000 tickets are available and 613 prizes will be awarded ranging from $500 to $1 million. A Bonus Millionaire Raffle ticket costs $20 and is available at all retail locations where jackpot games are sold. The odds of winning $1 million are 1 in 140,000, better than any Colorado Lottery game in history. The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 457.

Players will have 180 days from the date of the final Millionaire Raffle drawing on July 1 to claim winning prizes. Prizes will be paid in one lump sum.
