The Florida Lottery today held the Firecracker MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE drawing, randomly selecting 2,540 winning numbers worth more than $7.5 million in cash prizes. Lottery players with the first five numbers drawn in this year’s Firecracker MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE will be awarded $1 million each. Additionally, 10 players will each receive $100,000, 25 players will each receive $10,000, and 2,500 players will each receive $500.
This year’s Firecracker MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE offered the best odds to win $1 million of any Lottery game currently on sale. The $20 tickets went on sale Friday, May 21, and were available through midnight on Monday, July 5. Since not all of the 750,000 tickets available statewide were sold, only the 556,804 tickets sold were entered in the drawing.
The five one-million-dollar-winning ticket numbers and the locations where the tickets were purchased are listed below. All Firecracker MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE winning numbers will be available on the Florida Lottery Web site at www.flalottery.com by approximately 3 p.m. today. Million-dollar winning numbers are available by phone at (850) 921-PLAY and at Florida Lottery retailers statewide.
