LISTEN:  Oregon Lottery St. Patrick’s Day Raffle Winners Announced

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Lottery’s 22nd annual St. Patrick’s Day Raffle is in the books.  The grand prize winner was announced this morning on KXL.  It is: 089715  You can check your tickets on their website.  Players can also use the Oregon Lottery app to check their tickets.

Patrick Johnson with the lottery says it took a bit longer than usual for them to sell out the 250,000 tickets this year.  In year’s past, they’ve been able to have 3 full raffle sessions.  He attributes that to the pandemic.

The annual raffle is one of the lottery’s most popular games in part because of the odds and the basic nature of a raffle which people seem to appreciate.  One person wins $1 million dollars while others have an excellent chance of making money.

Patrick says as with all other lottery games, the revenue goes to support things like schools and state services.

$1 Million 1 1:250,000
$500 300 1:833
$100 1,500 1:167
