Delaware sold out tonight.  Maryland is the best bet right now with only half the tickets sold.  Odds are good but the price is $20 per ticket.

      I have 7 tickets in the Maryland "Countdown to Millions" raffle.  They have 4 $1 million prizes and 8 $50,000 prizes, overall odds one in 517. 

      I bought a ticket yesterday and it was numbered 232,285.  They have 420,000 to sell and now say that tickets will be sold until 6 PM on New Year's Day.   The drawing was originally going to be Dec. 31.  Does anyone know if states generally go ahead and do a drawing even if all tickets are not sold? 

       

      I'm new to this kind of game and it seems ticket sales here in MD have been slow.  Thanks!

        The Maryland Lottery Website says that they will be sold until sold out.  That is their original intent, anyway.  Whether they change their minds about that, I don't know.  The original rules do say that the drawing will be later if they are not sold out by Dec. 31st.  But how much longer after that will they wait before changing the rules? I don't know.  I hope they wait until after the 3rd myself.  I have one ticket and would like to buy more and can't get their from PA until the 3rd.  If they REALLY wanted to sell them they should do what Delaware did.  DE offered a free Powerball ticket with the purchase of a Raffle ticket.  MD has Mega Millions (still known by many in MD as "Big Game") so they could offer a free MegaMillions ticket if they really wanted to.

          Yeah I planned to buy some more tickets too, so I kind of hope it is extended a bit.  I really think Maryland has done a poor job of promoting this new game.  I have not seen any TV commercials on it and maybe one or two radio ads.

           

          It would be nice to get something free for buying a $20 ticket.  It is a fun game anyway though and I wish I had known about Delaware's game as we drove through there this past week.

          MD Lottery is slow to update their site, never know what they are up to, but good luck to you and all in the state raffles!  Smile

                            wow i made a big mistake about those figures.

                            maryland has sold 293,000 at around 2 pm on 12/31/06 i was miss - informed

                            so i expect that they might sell another 50 thousand more by tomorrow night.
