From Raleigh Chronicle Staff & Wire Reports
Thursday June 7, 2007

RALEIGH - According to the NC Lottery, the state has been selling a tickets for its new raffle game being offered this summer.

The NC Lottery reported last Friday that in just three weeks since the "Sizzlin' Millionaire Raffle" tickets went on sale, close to half of the tickets have been sold. 

More than 225,000 tickets will have been bought by players, which leaves less than 275,000 tickets left for the July 4th drawing.

"We have received so many positive comments about the raffle," said Tom Shaheen , NCEL executive director in a press statement. "There continues to be a lot of excitement." 

There are a limited number of "Sizzlin' Millionaire Raffle" tickets for sale and once the 500,000 limit is reached, no more tickets will be sold for the raffle. 

According to the lottery, the "Sizzlin' Millionaire Raffle" will give players the best odds of winning $1 million on an NCEL game.

Many NCEL retailers have said that it is higher jackpots and anything new that tends to bring more people out.

Here are the top raffle retailers in each of the NCEL regions:

Asheville Region  - Catamount Travel Center , 3385 Hwy. 441 North, Whittier, NC

Charlotte Region  - Dunn's Auto Service, 103 West Main Street , Biscoe, NC

Greensboro Region - Quick Mart, 201 West Main Street , Jamestown, NC

Greenville Region - The Border Station, 101 Caratoke Highway , Moyock, NC

Raleigh Region - Dunn's Gas and Grocery, 209 East Wellons Street , Four Oaks, NC

More About The Game

The odds of winning one of the top prizes of $1 million are 1 in 125,000. There will be four $1 million prizes and a total of 509 prizes including smaller prizes of $1000 and $100,000.

Players in the raffle have a one in 1000 chance of winning at least $1000.

To play is pretty simple -- players do not choose their numbers for this game and there are no play slips and all numbers are computer generated.

Players just need to tell the retail salesperson that they would like to purchase a raffle ticket, which are priced at $20 each.
