National Millionaire Raffle Game Drawn Today
$50,000 Raffle Prize Awarded in Oklahoma
The cash prize winners in the multi-state raffle game -- sold in Oklahoma, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey, and New York -- have been selected.
The game started out offering two separate $1 million grand prizes. Sales in the participating states were enough to increase the prize pool to three separate $1 million grand prizes.
The official drawing was held today to select the three $1 million cash winners. The winning raffle tickets were sold in Ohio, Michigan, and New Jersey.
States that did not have a $1 million winner awarded a separate $50,000 prize to one lucky player. There were four $50,000 winners, one each in Oklahoma, Iowa, Indiana and New York.
The $50,000 winning ticket from Oklahoma is ticket # 00011694.
More than 700,000 tickets were sold in all seven states, with 24,414 tickets sold in Oklahoma. The drawing was held at the draw facility of the Multi-State Lottery Association in Iowa.

With each ticket purchase, Oklahomans also received an entry to win a 2014 Chevy Cruze. Entries must be received at Lottery headquarters no later than 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4, with the drawing for the Chevy Cruze scheduled to be executed later that day.
