MIDDLETOWN, Pa., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fewer than 240,000 tickets remain for the 4th of July Millionaire Raffle drawing to be held on July 8, offering the Pennsylvania Lottery's best chances of winning a $1 million prize. Tickets purchased before July 3 will also have the chance to win a $100,000 Early Bird Bonus Drawing prize.
Tickets for Millionaire Raffle are available until 8 p.m. on the drawing date, unless sold out sooner. Ticket sales for this edition started May 2 and reached the half-sold point on June 25.
Winning Millionaire Raffle numbers are randomly selected from among ticket numbers sold. If all 500,000 available tickets are sold, each $20 ticket offers a 1 in 125,000 chance of winning one of the $1 million top prizes. The overall chances of winning any prize in the main game drawing are 1 in 83.33. The game's prize levels are:
- Four prizes of $1 million;

Each ticket features a unique, eight-digit number issued sequentially as tickets are sold across the state, starting at 00000001 and ending at 00500000. To win, the number on the ticket must exactly match a winning number selected in the drawing, with all digits in the same sequence.
On July 8, winning Millionaire Raffle numbers will be randomly selected after 8 p.m. and announced after 10 p.m. at palottery.com. Players should check their tickets using scanners found at Lottery retailers or with the ticket checker feature on the Lottery's official mobile app.
