MIDDLETOWN, Pa., July 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Lottery's Millionaire Raffle has created four new millionaires. The selection of four $1 million raffle ticket numbers and four $100,000 raffle ticket numbers was televised live on the Lottery's drawing show earlier this evening.
The four $1 million top-prize raffle ticket numbers selected were 00272847, 00224510, 00347142, and 00376010. The four $100,000 second-tier prize raffle ticket numbers selected were 00295315, 00450157, 00404629, 00107840. The remaining 5,992 winning raffle ticket numbers for third- and fourth-tier prizes were selected, but were not televised due to time constraints.
Players may check winning numbers beginning July 8 at www.palottery.com and at retailers. Winning raffle ticket numbers will be listed on the Lottery website by prize category in ascending order. The website will also feature a search function that allows players to enter their eight-digit raffle ticket numbers to determine if they hold winning tickets. In addition, every Lottery retailer has a ticket checker that permits players to scan their own tickets and find out if they are winners.
To be considered a winning ticket, the eight-digit number on a Millionaire Raffle ticket must exactly match a winning number selected in the raffle drawing, and all digits must appear in the same sequence as the winning number.
The $1 million top prizes must be claimed by presenting a winning ticket at Pennsylvania Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at any of the Lottery's seven area offices. Claims may be filed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lottery headquarters and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at area offices.
Claims for the $100,000 prizes can be filed at any of the Lottery's seven area offices or at any licensed Pennsylvania Lottery retailer. Holders of Millionaire Raffle tickets worth $1,000 and $100 can claim winnings at local Lottery retailers.
The final ticket for this evening's Millionaire Raffle drawing was sold at 8:31 a.m. today at Smoker Friendly, 1771 Golden Mile Highway, Monroeville, Allegheny County.
This was the 14th Millionaire Raffle drawing. For a list of top-prize winners from previous Millionaire Raffle drawings, visit the Winners' Circle at www.palottery.com.
