Mar. 25, 2021 – Salem, Ore. – By having the 2021 Raffle ticket number of 171474, Joshua Park became the Raffle’s newest $1 million top prize winner when he claimed his prize at Lottery headquarters March 23.
Park, of Vancouver, had purchased 20 Raffle tickets over the course of time since the 2021 Raffle went on sale in early January. “I started checking my tickets with the Lottery’s app the morning the winning numbers came out,” said Park. “I was hoping to win a $100 or $500 prize. When I scanned the winning ticket and it said I’d won $1 million, it was pretty unbelievable.”
Park is no stranger to winning big prizes playing Oregon Lottery games. Prior to winning his Raffle prize, Park had claimed a $150,000 “Holiday Party” Scratch-it top prize on Dec. 24, 2020.
Park purchased his winning Raffle ticket at the Holgate Market on 112th Ave. in Portland.
