Another flop for me. The game is fixed. I was less than 10,000 away from the million, and only 12 away from winning a $1,000. That would have been better than nothing. I only got 2 tickets and I am glad I did not spend more. I still do not believe the tickets sold out, and there is no way to prove they did. Especially since they only list the top 10 winners if they even claim the prizes. This is my last time playing "rip-off raffle."

    How the heck can a raffle be "fixed"?

    It's not "fixed", you just didn't win.

      Sirbrad, sorry to hear you didnt hit. If its any consolation....I didnt even come close. Despite the positive attitude and good vibes I had for my ticket, the karma didnt come my way.  I did find it rather peculiar that that High numbers we all big winners. Those of us that bought early werent the ones to catch the worm. So be it. Its done via RNG so I've no doubt its not rigged so much as the computer deliberately was programmed to exclude numbers lower then 300,000. Opps I think thats called rigging number generator ! Go figure. Was fun to dream though!

        These raffles arent fixed but they are just a big excuse for the lotteries to rip us off even more with their paltry 50% payback percentages.  I find it funny the law allows higher payoffs on 10-20 scratch tickets but only 50% on these raffles. You are better off dollar for dollar waiting for the lucky 5 or little lotto of your state to rise to the 500k mark ( happens about 7-8 times a year, or the amount of time 1-2 months you need for these numbers to be drawn) and then play all of it on that draw.  I love all these states proclaiming "BEST ODDS EVER OF WINNING A MILLION" dollar per dollar and with payouts makes these things poison. That is why half these states can't sell out, people see right through it. Play the Pick 4 at Ellis Park! 4% takeout, now that is a fair shake!!

          The draw itself might not be fixed, but I believe there is deception as to how many tickets were actually sold. No way they sold out on the exact day as projected, unless they bought the majority themselves; or I should say "kept." Sure more people might start buying near the end because of all the hype that tickets are being sold quickly, but I highly doubt that many tickets would sell in two days in this dead state.

          It would be quite easy to cheat when you only have to list 10 winners. Either way I am done with the game regardless unless maybe I see some type of validation that the tickets are actually bought by "real people."

            Yeah it is pretty sad for game with such good so-called "odds" of winning, only to return a ZERO percent payback for the price of $20 a ticket. Even more sad that I usually receive more of a payback simply by playing one powerball, with so-called odds that are ridiculous.

              I bought one at the beginning in the 100,000's, and one towards the end in the 590,000's. I wanted one in the middle as well, but $60 was a little excessive for me to only lose anyway.

                    The overall odds of winning (1 in 80) were the best I've seen in any state raffle game so far. But when you do the math that also means there will be 79 losing tickets for every winning ticket. Multiply 79 times 7777 and you'll see there were a whole bunch of people the odds didn't favor.

                    Comparing the PA Raffle to Powerball is apples to oranges unless Powerball sold $2 tickets, assigned each ticket with a different combination and sold out all 146,107,962 tickets with same payoff structure. You would have a 1 in 37 chance of winning a prize. Since the PA Raffle sold $20 tickets and the lowest winning prize was $100, you would have to compare buying 10 of these mythical Powerball tickets to the odds of winning $100 and that would be 1 in 1193 compared to the 1 in 80 the PA Raffle offered.

                    When PA announced they were having that raffle they said upfront they were selling 625,000 $20 tickets and would have 7777 winners. Did you really expect them to say there would be 617,223 losing tickets?
