PHOENIX (Nov. 4, 2009) — Just in time for the growing Powerball jackpot currently sitting at $66 million for tonight’s drawing, the Arizona Lottery is doling out free Powerball tickets to players who purchase an Arizona Lottery Millionaire Raffle “Holiday Edition” ticket by the Early Bird drawing on Nov. 19.
With more than $3 million in total cash prizes, including one $1 million grand prize and a special Early Bird drawing on Nov. 19 worth $100,000, Millionaire Raffle offers players the best odds ever at winning $1 million with just 300,000 tickets available. Tickets went on sale Sunday, Nov. 1, at retailers where Lottery products are sold.
On Nov. 19, the Arizona Lottery will hold a special Early Bird drawing that will give players the opportunity to win 20 prizes of $5,000. All tickets purchased by Nov. 19 for the Early Bird drawing are still eligible to win all of the other prizes in the main drawing on Jan. 4 — even if they’ve already won a $5,000 prize on Nov. 19.
In addition to the single $1 million prize and the 20 Early Bird prizes of $5,000, there are six $100,000 prizes, 40 $10,000 prizes, 750 $1,000 prizes and 350 $500 prizes.
The $20 tickets are sold in sequential order, and sales will stop once the last of the tickets has been sold.
Winning numbers will be posted on arizonalottery.com and azmillionaireraffle.com after 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 4. Also, the $1 million winning raffle number will be announced that evening during the 10 p.m. newscasts on Channel 15 (ABC) in Phoenix, Channel 13 (CBS) in Tucson, and in Spanish on Univision Arizona.
You must be at least 21 to purchase or redeem tickets. The Arizona Lottery reminds everyone to please play responsibly.
