Tune in to the Drawing to See if You Won:
The Millionaire Raffle drawing will be held during the Pennsylvania Lottery’s live drawing show on January 2, 2010, at 6:59 p.m.
How the Drawing Works:
An Automated Drawing Machine (ADM) randomly selects all of the 6,000 winning raffle ticket numbers. The ADM selection of the four, $1 million top-prize raffle ticket numbers and the four, $100,000 second-prize raffle ticket numbers will be televised live. The 100, $1,000-winning raffle ticket numbers and the 5,892, $100-winning raffle ticket numbers also will be selected during the live drawing show, but these 5,992 winning ticket numbers will not be televised due to time constraints.
An ADM is a highly secure computerized system that generates numbers in a random manner. ADMs have been used by lotteries for many years. The Pennsylvania Lottery first used an ADM for the “Hearts and Diamonds” game in the mid-1990s and has used random number generation over the years to facilitate many of its second-chance drawings.
The Lottery currently uses an ADM to randomly select the numbers for the mid-day drawings of The Daily Number, BIG 4 and Treasure Hunt terminal-based games. Other lotteries, both in the United States and internationally, also utilize ADMs for the random selection of winning numbers.
The ADM was certified by Gaming Laboratories International, the world’s premier gaming products and systems testing company.
A Pennsylvania Lottery drawing official will operate the ADM by pressing a button that will activate the ADM to begin the winning ticket number selection process. Viewers will see the eight winning ticket numbers for the top two prize tiers displayed on the ADM monitor as they are selected at random. In addition, the winning ticket information will be printed in report form and properly recorded on certification forms by the on-site Certified Public Accountant.
You also can check your winning numbers the next day at www.palottery.com or by visiting your local retailer.
The eight-digit raffle number printed on the ticket must match the eight-digit raffle number combination selected in the drawing – with all eight digits in the exact sequence in which they were selected – to be considered a winning ticket and to be entitled to a Millionaire Raffle prize.
Claming a Prize:
All prize levels are paid out in cash, including the jackpot. All 100 winning tickets of $1,000 and all 5,892 winning tickets of $100 can be validated and paid at any numbers games retailer. Players with winning tickets worth $100,000 and $1 million must file a claim for payment. Winning tickets may be redeemed up to one year after the drawing date, or until January 2, 2011.
