Bringing Lucky Back ~ A Chance to Win!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Illinois Lottery for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you feeling lucky? I want to let my readers know about the Halloween Millionaire Raffle from the Illinois Lottery, which is a fan favorite! A drawing randomly selects three winners of $1,000,000 each on November 1st. Only 400,000 tickets are being sold so it’s the best odds to win $1 million dollars. Even if you don’t typically play the lottery, the raffle is a fun way to try your luck.  To help celebrate this event, I’m giving away an Illinois Lottery gift bag here on my blog that you can win simply by leaving a comment at the end of this post saying what you would do with the winnings. The lottery is bringing lucky back!

Halloween Millionaire Raffle from Illinois LotteryMy sample gift bag arrived when my daughter Bridget was over, so I persuaded her to help me with photos by modeling with the bag! It was a beautiful fall day outside so we walked to the forest preserve at the end of my street.


Halloween Millionaire Raffle from Illinois LotteryBridget is almost 9 months pregnant, in case you couldn’t tell!  She’s wearing the fingerless gloves that came in the gift bag. I told her she should purchase a Halloween Millionaire Raffle ticket or two since she’ll soon be adding to her family. Wouldn’t it be a great way to usher in a new baby?  With over 8,000 prizes available, her odds of winning something are pretty good. Besides, tickets are only $20 each.

Tickets went on sale September 18th and are available at lottery retailers and also at a variety of special events. Halloween Raffle Events are being held around the Chicagoland area where the Illinois Lottery team will be on site promoting and selling raffle tickets.

I need one of these when I run in the rain (because rain and snow don’t keep an avid runner from heading outside to catch a few miles).  Bridget’s also wearing a pair of sunglasses that were included in the gift pack.

If you want to enter to win your own gift pack from the Illinois Lottery, simply leave a comment below stating what you’d do with your earnings if you win. The winner will be chosen this Friday, October 23rd.

And don’t forget to buy your Illinois Lottery Halloween Millionaire Raffle tickets before November 1st when the drawing for the winners will be held. You can find where to buy tickets using the retail locator. Winning raffle ticket numbers will be available on the Millionaire Raffle results web page shortly after the drawing. Wishing you all good luck!

  1. It is a disservice to your readers not to disclose that Illinois will not pay lottery winners until the budget, which is stalemated by our politicians and governor, is approved.

    I always play this one since the odds are better. The only sad part is that Illinois can’t balance their budget and have to issue IOU’s if we win anything over $600! Can you believe our state is in such a financial mess!?!

  3. What a fun giveaway. I think some travel would be in order and some cool new camera equipment along with a new iMac. Oh it’s fun to dream!

  4. Pay off my mortgage and give the rest to the local soup kitchen. Woohoo what fun!

  5. I would pay off my mortgage and get the last kid through college! A stay at home mom for 30 years = never had money to travel. So I would LOVE to take a little trip:)
