The New Mexico Lottery has raised nearly $1 billion for New Mexico education through lottery ticket sales. Thanks to lottery players, more than $144,000 New Mexicans have received a Legislative Lottery Scholarship.

People can enter into the Powerball First Millionaire of the Year promotion between August 1 – September 30. Fifteen New Mexican Lottery players have the chance to win $1,000 and receive a semi-finalist entry into the national trip prize drawing.

Five national finalists will then be selected from entrants from all participating lotteries to receive a VIP trip to New York City for New Year’s Eve and a chance to become the Powerball First Millionaire of the Year® during the broadcast of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.”
