COLUMBIA, SC (October 15, 2010) – The South Carolina Education Lottery just made 10 players $5,000 richer! One winner was visiting the coast and almost forgot to purchase his raffle ticket. He bought the ticket the night before the early bird drawing, and today is glad he did.
Millionaire Raffle Early Bird Drawing results are available on the South Carolina Education Lottery's website, sceducationlottery.com. Lottery retailers can also scan your Millionaire Raffle ticket to verify if you are a winner. Millionaire Raffle ticket numbers must match in the exact order drawn.
Ten raffle numbers were randomly drawn on Wednesday, October 13, to win $5,000 each. All raffle tickets purchased, including the 10 selected in the Early Bird Drawing, are eligible for the Final Drawing scheduled to be held on or before Tuesday, November 16. Early Bird Players received two drawings for the price of one!
It's not too late to purchase your Millionaire Raffle ticket for a chance to win $1 MILLION. Tickets are on sale NOW at lottery retailers statewide. The Millionaire Raffle has the best odds of winning a $1 MILLION prize of the games offered by the Lottery. With only 500,000 tickets available, when these $10 tickets are gone, they are gone.
The Final Millionaire Raffle Drawing will award the following prizes*:
2 - $1 MILLION prizes (odds: 1 in 250,000);
2 - $100,000 prizes (odds: 1 in 250,000);
20 - $10,000 prizes (odds: 1 in 25,000); and

*Raffle tickets must be purchased by 11:59 p.m. on November 15, unless all 500,000 raffle tickets are sold. Odds of winning shown are based on selling all 500,000 tickets. Odds of winning depend on the number of tickets sold.
