St. Patrick’s Day RaffleSM Tickets on Sale Sunday

January 18, 2012 - Salem, Ore. - Offering the best of odds of winning $1 million, the Oregon Lottery®’s St. Patrick’s Day RaffleSM returns!

The latest St. Patrick’s Day Raffle sales begin Sunday, January 22 at 5 AM with a cost of $10 per ticket with only 250,000 tickets available. The new St. Patrick’s Day Raffle offers a $1 million top prize as well as 1,010 other cash prizes.

“It’s hard to believe that this is our eighth Raffle game,” said Oregon Lottery Director Larry Niswender. “One thing that holds true for each and every one of our Raffles is that they have all sold out. I expect this one will be just as successful.”

In addition to the one $1 million top prize, the St. Patrick’s Day Raffle game also offers these prizes:

  • 10 prizes of $20,000
  • 1,000 prizes of $100

The winning St. Patrick’s Day Raffle numbers will be announced on Friday, March 16, 2012.

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
