      These Raffles are becoming very popular and some lottery commissions will probably start scheduling them about every 3 months. I wonder which state will be the first to not sell all the tickets before the scheduled drawing date?

          Maybe it's my imagination, but, a quick review of the winning numbers in these raffles seems to be weighted to the later numbers.

          MI., 61% came from the second half of ticket sold.

          MD., 56%

          FL., 60%

          PA., 51%

          GA., 53%

          NY., 53%

          It would seem to me that at least one of these would have a higher percentage in the lower numbers. Is there a reasonable explanation?

            As long as the raffle games are computer picked, the chance of tampering with the program is always there...

            This and any other computer generated games...

              I hate to burst your bubble, but if 50 to 60 percent of the numbers came from the second half of tickets, then 40 to 50 percent came from the first half of numbers.

              Given a random effort I would say this is pretty predictable.  What planet are you from?
