The two winners are Katherine Miller, 72, of Sag Harbor, New York, and Robin Korner, 58, of Palm Bay, Florida. Three of seven $1 million prizes remain unclaimed.
“I have never purchased a lottery ticket before,” said Miller.
“My Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE ticket was a gift from my sister,” Miller said.
“How lucky that the first time I played, I won!”
Miller’s winning ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven, located at 1690 Southeast Walton Road in Port St. Lucie. Korner purchased her winning ticket at the Racetrac, located at 5995 Babcock Street Northeast in Palm Bay.
Each retailer received a bonus incentive of $5,000 for selling a $1 million-winning ticket.
Along with the seven $1 million prizes, 540 other prizes ranging from $500 to $50,000 were awarded in the Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE New Year’s Eve drawing held on December 31.
Additionally, this year’s Raffle offered five weekly drawings, in which a $10,000 prize and two hundred $500 prizes were won.
In total, 1,552 players won more than $8.675 million in prizes in the Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE.
Plus, players who purchased early had the chance to participate in the Playoff Bonus Drawing, in which 10 winners were selected to attend the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl and won cash prizes of up to $25,000 in an exciting prize reveal on-field at the game.
