A guaranteed millionaire every week, a decent holiday present and a chance to have a very happy New Year's Eve.

Florida Lottery officials are betting that a new seven-week raffle series will attract players excited by at least one of those three facets of their new game, called 25th Anniversary Millionaire. The first drawing is Monday.

As opposed to lottery-type games, such as Powerball and the Florida Lotto ? which may or may not produce a winner after a drawing ? a raffle consists of selling a specific number of tickets and guaranteeing a prize. Kind of like your charity fund-raiser that awards that flat-screen TV.

In this case, each Monday through Dec. 23, players' tickets sold for that week are entered into a drawing. A searchable list of the winning ticket number and the 300 consolation prizes of $1,000 will be posted at Lottery Post's Florida Lottery Results page after 3 p.m. So if you see the dude in cubicle next to you shouting around that time, be nice to him. :huh:

But lottery officials warn to hang on to those tickets. There's a grand prize drawing on Dec. 31 for $2 million, plus 10 $100,000 winners and 550 other consolation prizes. Every ticket sold from now through Dec. 30 will be eligible.

I'd even be happy with one of those consolation prizes.

Guess they're not worried because of the December 21 clause stating 'all tickets will be void in the event of a catastrphic global event'

This sounds really similiar to what the National Lottery did for the olympics in the UK.
