The more tickets sold the more million dollar jackpots that will be offered. For every 200,000 tickets sold in the participating states an additional million dollar jackpot prize is added. If there is no winner in a particular state of the million dollar jackpot, a special runner-up prize of $50,000 will be randomly drawn for that state.
Michigan Makes a Difference
The Halloween Millionaires Lottery in Michigan says that for every 10,000 tickets sold, there will be 50 prizes of $100 and 500 prizes of $20. The more tickets sold, the more people will win. This certainly beats candy apples and chocolate bars as a trick or treat to take home!

Illinois also chose to host a Halloween Millionaires Raffle but not part of the multi-state draw. Their tickets cost $20 each, and only 500,000 tickets will be sold. There will be four $1 million prizes awarded as well $500,000 in instant $100 prizes. This one got my attention as my place to get my ‘treat’.
