Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle sold out; winning numbers to be announced January 2nd
BOISE, Idaho — At least one lucky Idaho Lottery player who participated in the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle will be ringing in the New Year as Idaho’s newest millionaire.
All 250,000 tickets in the Idaho Lottery’s traditional holiday game — the Idaho $1,000,000 Raffle — have been sold and the game has officially ended, Lottery officials said.
The 250,000th ticket was sold during the afternoon on Friday, December 20. No additional tickets will be issued. Over 35,000 tickets were sold in the final seven days of sales.
“This is the twelfth time the game has sold out — and the fourth time prior to Christmas. This year’s Raffle sold out the earliest since the initial Raffle did in 2007, and it was the fourth fastest selling Raffle game in Lottery history; and the fastest seller since 2009,” said Lottery spokesman Dave Workman in a news release.
“Right now, someone has a ticket worth $1,000,000. All players should sign the ticket back and keep it in a safe place until the winning numbers are announced in early January,” Idaho Lottery Director Jeff Anderson.
The winning numbers will be announced on Thursday, January 2, 2020 at 9:59 p.m. Mountain Time.
Players can check their tickets for winning numbers at idaholottery.com, at all Idaho Lottery retail locations, on the Idaho Lottery information hotline at 208-334-4656, or by using the Idaho Lottery Check-a-Ticket app for their iPhone or Android phone.
