This weekend is a big weekend for the Kansas Lottery’s Holiday Millionaire Raffle.

“This weekend is the first of four Early Bird drawings for the Holiday Millionaire Raffle,” said Lottery spokesperson Courtney Ryan. “That drawing will take place on Sunday, with a chance to win $25,000. Each month leading up to our grand prize event on January 2, 2020, we’ll be holding these early bird drawings. The prize will increase each month.”

The October Early Bird drawing is $30,000, November is $40,000 and December is $50,000.

“We only have 200,000 tickets available,” said Ryan. “At last check this morning, the actual ticket number is 170,610 tickets available for this raffle, so once they’re gone, they’re gone.”

Tickets are $20 per play.

“When you buy them before an Early Bird drawing, you’re entered into all those Early Bird drawings, as well as that grand prize event on January 2, 2020,” Ryan said. “You do have to make sure if you’re buying your ticket, that you buy them by 6:59 p.m. on the drawing night to be eligible for the drawing.”
