Lottery Post's guide to 2023 holiday raffles across the USA
In my opinion, Pennsylvania has consistently delivered an excellent raffle structure for the longest of any lottery in the USA. I really like the weekly early bird drawings that deliver really good prizes, and the main drawing offers a nice spread of cash prizes. Tickets go on sale next week, so I'll be starting my weekly ticket buy. I am frankly mystified as to why New Jersey doesn't offer a raffle every year. On the years they do offer it, their raffle always seems to have a good structure

Cheaper than running ads would have been to cap sales on particular combos or even better

$875 MILLION: Powerball lottery jackpot surges on rollover
If it was anything else the jackpot wouldn't get past the starting 20M. What if it's just a result of the lottery really being a tax on stupid people and none of us can figure out the right formula for predicting a result that really can be predicted? anyone who asks for money isn't getting any! I've long thought that that's a good rule. I might give you something, but asking makes it absolutely certain that I won't. The problem is that the not asking can still be annoying as h ell
