My friends and I have been purchasing the current PA Millionaire Raffle tickets over the past month and they are currently around number 230,000 as of yesterday morning. It looks like they're selling an average of about 5000 a day, give or take. I thought someone out there might be interested, and didn't see a forum for the state millionaire raffles.

    Yeah, that's about the halfway point.

    I'm sure when they start super advertising, they'll sell out before the drawing.

    Seems to go that way every year.

    Good luck on the big one!

      Thank you for this update! I had been wondering what the daily range was for purchases. I did get one and since its all computer picks I doubt highly that a ticket with three consecutive (same Numbers) will be drawn. Computers dont normally do two consecutive much less three in a row!. So be it, it will go to some Lil ole Lady who is on limited income :)

        OKay I got another ticket- starts with 254xx8, So hopefully this helps to see how on target they are.

        Seems they are not selling to the sold out record yet....:(

        Would this mean that they can still draw duds from the unsold ones?

          Wow- it looks like sales are getting REAL slow. I've searched online, and I can't find anything about what happens with the unsold ones. I'm GUESSING that if those numbers come in, then Pennsylvania keeps the money. I might buy another ticket in a week or so, if I do I'll post back here. Thanks for the update, GameGrl!

            What are the Odds and How Much are the Tickets?

                What are the Odds and How Much are the Tickets?

                Tickets are $20.00 each.

                Automated Drawing Machine

                Each ticket will have an 8 digit number and to win, your ticket must

                match the 8 in exact order.

                Prizes:

                6,000 total prizes:

                 

                4 - $1,000,000.00

                4 - $100,000.00

                100 - $1,000.00

                5,892 - $100.00

                 

                Odds of winning $1 million:

                1 in 125,000

                ***********

                Odds for $1,000

                1 in 125,000

                ***********

                Odds for $100.00

                1 in 85

                500,000 tickets available

                 

                Went on sale April 27, 2009 and will continue until 5pm on July 4, 2009

                Drawing: July 5th 2009

                 

                Worth a shot. These odds are comparable to what the Cash 5 used to be...so it is currently the

                best odds for a jackpot game in PA.

                  Time is winding down.

                  I hope they have at least 100,000 unsold tickets by cutoff.

                  I'm going to go poke around the website and see if I can find anything concerning unsold

                  tickets.

                  I would think they HAVE to award all winners.

                  For past draws the tickets have sold out before the cutoff date.

                  I expected heavy advertising about now. I don't see it.

                      Okay, I'll buy a few - but best bet would be to go to Bradford County - yeah way up State to get the tickets, nothing big ever hits Philadelphia.   I mean BIG.  Worth a drive to a small out of the way town.

                      Yeah, Raffle - sell all the tickets or the numbers are put in the hat. 

                      Anyone figure out how much after taxes?  I know somebody did.

                        I plan on buying another ticket Thursday morning when I get out of work. I'll try to remember to post back here when I do. Hopefully there are still some available...

                            About 9:45 this morning, I bought ticket #428xxx. They might not sell out for this one, ya think?

                              Ticket sales run up until 5pm on the 4th.

                              500,000 tickets...

                              roughly 71,000 to go.

                              Maybe they will not sell out.

                              It used to be they sold out well before the final week before the draw.

                              Good luck and thank you for the info.
