Tickets for the Jan. 1, 2018 Minnesota Millionaire Raffle went on sale Oct. 24, 2017 and sold out on Dec. 12, 2017—the earliest sell outdate in December on record. The Raffle game, which originally debuted in 2006, continues to grow in popularity every year because of its limited number of tickets, guaranteed winners and it offers the Lottery’s best odds to win $1 million.

Since 2006, the Raffle game alone has raised approximately $29.5 million for Minnesota. Lottery dollars help make important environmental projects possible throughout Minnesota. The state’s General Fund, which funds programs including education, public safety and health and human services, also receives a portion of Lottery proceeds.
