The Virginia Lottery is holding its third New Year's Millionaire Raffle.

The raffle will produce three $1 million winners, six $25,000 winners and 300 prizes of $500.

If you're one of the big winners, it's a nice way to start out 2010.

Unlike the past two years, when 440,000 tickets were offered and four $1 million prizes were awarded, this New Year's raffle has been scaled down, according to The Virginia Lottery.

However, the odds of winning remain the same: 1 in 110,000 provided all 330,000 tickets are sold.

Tickets are $20 each. 

Lottery officials said the tickets will be available until late in the evening Dec. 31 -- or, until they're sold out.  

The winners will be announced at 2 p.m. Jan. 1.
