MIDDLETOWN, Pa., Jan. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 00158528, 00023446, 00075876, and 00222718.
The four $100,000 second-tier prize raffle ticket numbers selected were 00312400, 00055244, 00441075, and 00025999.
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 tonight at palottery.com and at retailers. Winning raffle ticket numbers will be listed on the Lottery website by prize category in ascending order. 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.
This was the Pennsylvania Lottery's 15th Millionaire Raffle drawing and each has sold out. The final ticket for this evening's Millionaire Raffle drawing was sold at 5:53 p.m. Dec. 30, 2012 at Blalock's Restoration, 3013 Ford Road, Bristol, Bucks County.
