25TH Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE Drawings.
Weekly Drawings. In each weekly drawing, only tickets purchased during the corresponding sales period will be included in the drawing. The 1st number drawn will win the first prize. The 2nd through the 51st numbers drawn will win a second prize and will serve as alternates, in the order drawn, for a first prize in the event the $1,000,000 prize is not claimed within the 180-day claim period. A total of 306 weekly drawing prizes will be awarded.
In the event that all 1,000,000 MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets sell out during a weekly drawing sales period in which there are fewer tickets in the weekly drawing than weekly prizes to be awarded, a two-part drawing for that weekly sales period will be held on the date scheduled. Part one of the drawing will include only those tickets sold during the sales period and prizes will be awarded in the order tickets are drawn. Any remaining prizes will be awarded in part two of the drawing which will include all 1,000,000 tickets, excluding tickets selected for prizes in part one of the drawing and tickets selected as $1,000,000 prize winners in previous weekly drawings. The remaining prizes in part two of the drawing will be awarded in the order tickets are drawn. The overall odds of winning a prize in part one of the drawing are 1:1. The overall odds of winning a prize in part two of the drawing are (51 minus the number of prizes awarded in part one of the drawing) in (1,000,000 minus the number of winners in part one of the drawing and minus the number of $1,000,000 prizes in the previous weekly drawings).
In the event that all 1,000,000 MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets sell out and there are no ticket sales during a weekly sales period, the prizes for that sales period will be awarded in a drawing on the date scheduled. The drawing will include all 1,000,000 MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets, excluding tickets selected as $1,000,000 prize winners in previous weekly drawings, and the prizes will be awarded in the order tickets are drawn. The overall odds of winning a prize are 51 in (1,000,000 minus the number of $1,000,000 prizes in the previous weekly drawings).
Grand Prize Drawing. In the grand prize drawing, all 1,000,000 tickets, excluding the $1,000,000 weekly prize winners, will be included in the drawing. The 1st number drawn will win the first prize. The 2nd through the 11th numbers drawn will win a second prize and will serve as alternates, in the order drawn, for the first prize in the event the first prize is not claimed within the 180-day claim period. The 12th through the 61st numbers drawn will win a third prize and the 62nd through 561st numbers drawn will win a fourth prize. No alternates will be drawn for the second, third or fourth prizes. A total of 561 prizes will be awarded in the grand prize drawing.
25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE drawings shall be public, held in Tallahassee, Florida, and witnessed by an accountant employed by an independent certified public accounting firm. Winning numbers will be available after each drawing on the Florida Lottery's website at flalottery.com. The top prize winning number will be available after each drawing at Florida Lottery retailers.
Upon validation of a winning MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE ticket in a weekly drawing, the terminal will produce "player claim instructions" and a "continuation ticket" for the grand prize drawing. The MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE continuation ticket automatically issued for the claimant shall be the instrument from which a claim on the grand prize drawing or any subsequent weekly drawing occurring after a sellout will be paid. MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets and MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE continuation tickets are the only valid receipts to redeem a prize.
Winning MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets valued at $1,000, $10,000 and $100,000 must be presented to a Florida Lottery office for payment. Winning MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets valued at $1,000,000 and $2,000,000 must be presented at Lottery headquarters for payment.

25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE prizes must be claimed within 180 days from the date of the drawing.
If a winning MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE ticket for a prize of $2,000,000 or $1,000,000 is not presented to a Florida Lottery office for payment within 180 days from the date it was drawn, an alternate prizewinner who has claimed his or her prize within the 180-day claim period will be used as set forth in paragraph (8)(a) or (b), as applicable, to award the unclaimed prize. The Florida Lottery will attempt to notify the first alternate for a period of two weeks. If the Florida Lottery is unable to contact the first alternate within the two week period, the Florida Lottery will attempt to notify the second alternate. This process will continue until an alternate is contacted or the Florida Lottery has exhausted the list of available alternates, in which case the unclaimed prize will not be awarded. An alternate winner will be awarded the difference between the greater prize and the lesser prize.
