    I do plan on buy 2 or 3 raffle ticket in Tennessee.  I just hope they have some left when I get back home in early Feb. lol.  I think Tennessee will be like most states and snatch them up.

    How are you going to win if you don't play?

      I bought 10 $20 tickets in FL.  Didn't win anything, but would sure do it again.  Better odds and good payouts.

      Good Luck!

            We don't have one in IL yet but I'd probably buy a ticket because the payout-to-odds ratio is more tolerable than most lottery games.  However I wouldn't buy more than one ticket.

            Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

              Most of these Raffles sell 500,000 $20 tickets, giving four players a chance to win a million dollars, 5 $100,000 winners and 500 $1000 winners. It took Ohio about 7 weeks to sell all the tickets for the Labor Day drawing so people had plenty of time to purchase a ticket. People don't seem to worry about the overall odds of winning but these raffles do offer more for your buck then most of the other lottery games.

              I bought one $20 raffle ticket and wasn't devastated when I won nothing. And I'll get another one next time they offer the game.

                Yep.  I'm down here about 8 months out of the year (although it's been 11 months the past year).  I do come back to TN on some weekends and I'll be home for about 4 months in late spring and during the summer.  TN how I miss it... lol.

                How are you going to win if you don't play?

                    Since Alabama has no lottery (and likely never will), I voted "its not offered where i live."  However, I did play the Georgia Millionaire Raffle.  I didn't win anything this time, but I will play again next year IF the ticket pool remains at 500,000.  If they go the way of Florida and sell over a million tickets, I won't play.

                    The Georgia Raffle had a reasonable balance of prizes, IMHO.  Of course I'd like to see them add a few more prizes.  I'd also like to see the raffle be offered 3 times per year.

                    Since it's almost a two hour drive to the state line from where I live, I doubt that I'll make the drive to Tennessee just for Raffle tickets this year.  I probably would have bought some if they were being sold between Christmas and New Years, since we're always passing through TN at that time of year.

                    Good luck to everyone!
