PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2011) - The annual Arizona Lottery Millionaire Raffle launches today, Nov. 1, offering 1,147 cash prizes, including a $1 million top prize.

Early Bird tickets will be sold until midnight, Wednesday, Nov. 30.

All Early Bird winners will remain eligible for the final cash prizes.

"Millionaire Raffle is our most popular seasonal game," said Kim McGlothlen, director of advertising and marketing for the Arizona Lottery. "We sold out last year and expect to sell out again this year. With only 300,000 tickets available, we encourage players to get their tickets early so they don't miss out on their chance to win."

Only 300,000 tickets will be sold, providing players with some of the best odds to win $1 million. The tickets will be sold in sequential order and sales will stop once the final ticket has been sold.
