CLEVELAND (AP) - A split raffle game is coming to the Ohio Lottery.

Beginning Sunday, the Ohio Lottery has joined the Multi-State Millions Raffle also involving six other U.S. lotteries.

The Ohio Lottery calls the game a traditional split-the-pot style raffle.

The game will have two guaranteed $1 million prizes, with additional $1 million prizes as ticket sales grow.

Tickets will be on sale Sunday through Oct. 31, with the drawing on Nov. 1.

Tickets cost $10.

Other participating states are Oklahoma, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, New York and New Jersey.

In Ohio, players also will have a chance to win a Jeep Wrangler. Players must use a special ticket code to enter the promotion by Nov. 3.
