MIDDLETOWN, Pa., Jan. 2 /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 00246198, 00481361, 00177933, and 00197968. The four $100,000 second-prize raffle ticket numbers selected were 00047114, 00327483, 00411539, and 00223419. 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 Jan. 3 at www.palottery.com and at retailers. Winning raffle ticket numbers will be listed on the Lottery Web site by prize category in ascending order. The Web site will also feature a search function that allows players to enter their eight-digit raffle ticket numbers to determine if they hold winning tickets.

To be considered a winning ticket, the eight-digit number printed on Millionaire Raffle tickets must match the eight-digit combination selected in the drawing, in the exact sequence in which it was selected.

The $1 million top prizes must be claimed by presenting a winning ticket at Pennsylvania Lottery headquarters, 1200 Fulling Mill Rd., Middletown, or at any of the Lottery's seven area offices throughout the commonwealth. A list of area offices is available at www.palottery.com. 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 ninth Millionaire Raffle drawing. For a list of top-prize winners from the previous eight Millionaire Raffle drawings, visit the winner's circle at www.palottery.com.
