    I bought some of those tickets.....when I was in Ohio......I had a ticket that missed 500 dollars by 30 tickets   (the winning ticket was 30 numbers higher) my ticket ended in a 61 (213261)   and the winner of 500 bucks ended in 91   (213291)...............maybe if I waited 15 seconds I would have got the winning ticket.........who knew?........beaudad.......it was a lot of fun!!!!!!

        lol beaudad! I know what you mean but your amount was higher than mine...do you notice too, that it wasn't only 30 away but also, they flipped

        6 on you No Nod

        I missed a crummy hundred by 2 crummy numbers in PA's raffle...I had numbers ending in 823 and the winning one was ending in 825 lol!

        That's okay, PA can keep their crusty old raffle tickets from now on....If I want a stab at a million dollars or more, I'll put that money on the big

        games. The highest I won in a raffle game was $1,000 but that was a long time ago and haven't done as well with the ones that followed.
