They now have in Wisconsin a draw that wins a million dollars with only

500,000 tickets to be printed. The only catch is, it costs $10.

Do you guys think this is good odds, winning a million at 500,000 to one odds?

Anyways I bought one cause someone won the 183 million powerball today

so I was kinda bummed out. Won $7 twice, though, got 3 in a row but

didn't get it all right, so...

    It's better odds than Megabucks or Powerball.  But there's no fun involved in trying to figure out the winning numbers.

    Then again, they may not sell all the tickets before the raffle closes. If so, that will decrease the odds of everyone having their ticket drawn, and upset our lottery officials. I'm not buying one because raffles don't appeal to me.
