TOPEKA, Kansas – The Kansas Lottery announced Monday it has surpassed the halfway mark in the number of tickets still available in this year’s Holiday Millionaire Raffle. As of 3 p.m. Monday, there are approximately 87,480 tickets remaining in this year’s Raffle. Only 175,000 of the $20 tickets will be sold.
This is the seventh year for the Holiday Millionaire Raffle and sales are pacing well ahead of last year. In 2014, the halfway mark wasn’t surpassed until November 11. The Holiday Millionaire Raffle has sold out each year it has been offered.
The Lottery said early bird drawings are helping drive sales. They say there are 11 Early Bird drawings this year, more than ever before. Tickets purchased before an Early Bird drawing are eligible to win that drawing and all subsequent drawings including the Grand Prize drawing December 31 in which the Lottery will draw a $1,000,000 winning number and thousands of other numbers to win from $100 to $5,000.
The next Early Bird drawing for $10,000 cash will be Thursday, October 29. Other Early Bird drawings will be held Sundays and Thursdays November 1 through November 19.
