Colorado Announces First COVID Lottery Winner

One of these pictures shows Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Denver)

As 9News reports, we have a winner in the first $1 million drawing for Coloradans who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination:

Gov. Jared Polis on Friday announced that Sally Sliger of Mead was the first $1 million winner of the Colorado Comeback Cash COVID-19 vaccine drawing.

“The odds of me and my family being given $1 million overnight seemed impossibly small,” Sliger said at a news conference Friday at the Governor’s Residence. “Even with this winning, I’m still having a hard time believing our luck of the draw.”

The Colorado Lottery is holding five drawings between June 4 and July 7. Anyone 18 and older who is a Colorado resident and has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be automatically entered. You can check if your record is in the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS) here.

The winner is definitely not Denver Rep. Diana DeGette, though there is a decent chance that they are somehow related based on the two pictures above.

  1. In other states, there was an uptick in vaccinations after the announcement of a lottery. 

    Colorado?  Not so much.  DIVOC-91 website allows graphing of state vaccination statistics per 100,000 people.  The vaccine rates of Ohio and Colorado look similar … after a brief surge, both are heading in the wrong direction:
