This is Chip from the KY Lottery. The prize is all cash - no annuity no matter what the amount!

    Not crazy about having just 1 big winner.  And what if you have to take the annual payments instead of lump sum especailly if it's over a million. I rather have 5 or 10 winners split the pot and spread the wealth and increase odds of winning.

    This is probably the easiest way to run a raffle and every thing a player needs to know is specifically explained. I don't know why anybody would think it's an annuitized prize when the prize won't be known until after the last ticket is sold, but "winner take all 50/50 raffle" certainly explains it all.

    If 200,000 $10 tickets are sold, one player will win $1 million; simple as that.

      Thanks for the info Chip.

      I'm gonna slide on up there for some of them raffle tickets pretty soon. I just gotta figure out where to go.

      I'm thinkin maybe Harlan. I hope that ain't a dry county.

      Congrats on the new raffle game, sounds like a good one.

            According to the FX show Justified, Harlan is dry.  That's one of the best shows on TV, by the way.  They just wrapped season 2.

              Oh no, Middlesboro is dry too.

              I'm on the horns of a dilemma.

               

              I'll have to check out that show, thanks.

                YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE  HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

                A 50/50 raffle run by a guy named Casebeer!

                What the hell could be better than that?

                YEEEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAA!

                Thank You Kentucky!

                Yes sir! WTG KY!!! I've got to get in on this!

                I bet TN Will do something similar within a year (am I right Rebecca? Stay silent if I am right Mrs Hargrove!). We don't even get the free cash 3 or cash 4 anymore when buying 5 MM or PB tickets like they used to do.

                And Steve Casebeer? Best. Name. Ever.

                I wonder if I could make it to KY and back on a lunch break? Lol

                  Only one more day to buy some of these raffle tickets...I hope everyone out there that can, will!

                  The drawing is tomorrow and the pot is up to around $120,000. That is what the website says someone will take home with them (as of now). Surely it will rise to at least $130,000 by the time the drawing occurs.

                  I bought 4; how many did you all get?

                      I am not sure about that Ridge. I hope they start another one soon....and of course I hope Tenn. will do one very soon as well.
