Yes four4me and Todd, Maryland has not had much publicity on the "Countdown to Millions" game.  They have a total of 420,000 tickets to sell and the sales have been slow.  I have bought several and each time was surprised at how low the number was.  The $20 price is a factor, although I see plenty of people spending more than $20 on pick three and pick four when I go to buy tix.

The MD lottery site says that tickets will be sold until 6 PM on New Year's Day, but no update on  the drawing date and time.  Since it was supposed to be tonight, I think they may extend the sales deadline.

I like the new game and wish everyone good luck and a Happy 2007!

      I picked up a ticket today which was numbered under 300,000.

      Looks like Maryland has a ways to go.

      Still haven't heard if the drawing will go off as planned.

        I thought the numbers were running backwards.

          Kentucky's raffle game tickets go on sale tomorrow. The ticket price is $10 each. There will be two $1,000,000 prizes, two $50,000 prizes, thirty $10,000 prizes, and seven hundred $500 prizes. Only 500,000 tickets will be sold. I plan to buy one ticket first thing tomorrow. It's totally luck, but my luck will be as good as anybody's. I guess it's worth a shot.

            No. I brought a few earlier in December that were numbered below  096,000.
