Thanksgiving RaffleSM Closes in on Less than 50,000 Tickets Remaining

Winning Numbers Announced Nov. 23

November 12, 2010 - Salem, Ore. - Soon after the sun sets today, less than 50,000 Thanksgiving Raffle tickets will remain. At that point, over 90% of the Thanksgiving Raffle’s 500,000 tickets will have been sold and it would appear that this will become the Lottery’s fifth consecutive Raffle game to sell out.

Unlike the previous Raffle games, this Thanksgiving Raffle offered twice as many tickets and prizes. In addition to two $1 million top prizes, Thanksgiving Raffle players will win $600,000 in smaller prizes. Those prizes include:

  • 20 prizes of $20,000
  • 2,000 prizes of $100

“Our Raffle game gives players the best odds of winning $1 million of any game we offer,” said Interim Lottery Director Larry Niswender. “The fact that we are able to sell out this game each time speaks to the Raffle’s strong appeal.”

The number of Thanksgiving Raffle tickets remaining can be found on the Lottery’s Web site. Go to and click on the “Games & Games Info” tab.

The winning Thanksgiving Raffle numbers will be announced at approximately 8:30 AM on Tuesday, November 23, 2010. The announcement will be streamed live on the Lottery’s Web site.

The winning Thanksgiving Raffle numbers will be announced on Tuesday, November 23, 2010.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned nearly $7 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit
