    Just send $20 or $100 or whatever you were planning o spending to the Georgia lottery and say, "I was going to play the raffle with this, I can't stand having it, so I'll just skip the formality of buying the tickets."

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        I was being a wise guy but thus far I don't think anyone here has won anything in a raffle.

        The lottieries like to tell us that something like one in every 80 tickets is a winner,  but when you have 509 winners of 500,000 tickets it seems to me like there's 509 winners and 499, 492 losers. Same sceanrio with 300,000 tickets and 303 or 306 winners or whatever it is.

        It also amazes me that so many people here that are anti-quick pick will gladly fork over $20 for a raffle ticket. Think about that one.

          i agree it doesnt make sense to be anti quick pick when its only 1 or 2 dollars for on ticket but then to fork over 10 dollars or 20 dollars for a raffle ticket. the odds are really bad in raffle so i dont like the lottery fooling people into thinking they are good odds because at least i know the truth going in and i choose to buy them anyway so i dont want anyone to be misled into the purchase. tennessee million madness raffle will only have 106 winners out of 800,000 tickets sold but i dont think they will hit that mark so even if its 106 total winner out of 650,000 tickets sold at least i know the terrible odds going into my purchase. im the one who will do both ill get quick picks and raffle tickets. a few years ago i hated quick picks i just assumed that the lottery was kicking out the same numbers around the country so they could choose when we all win or not but with so many winners being quick picks i decided about 2 years ago that i needed to get quick picks to go along with my favorite numbers ive been been playing for 10 years...Clown

            Having a raffle with 106 winners out of 800,000 tickets sold shouldn't even legal.

            For all the thread we've had here about boycotting this or that lottery, that's the one that would truly deserve a boycott.

            Everyone in Tennessee whho plays lotto shoul contact the lottery commission and say plaease don't insult our intelligence with this raffle you're offering.

              i agree completely coin toss. i think the tennessee players are boycotting by not buying tickets so i guess that is the best way to boycott is to just not buy the tickets because there is no way they will hit the 800K mark by may 14th...

                Around 46,500 tickets have been sold on April 28, 2007

                VA lottery does it the best way. They have a counter on their website that tells how many tickets are remaining.

                The Millionaire Raffle, with the best odds ever of winning $1 million

                dollars (1 in 125,000), features four top prizes of $1 million dollars,

                five prizes of $100,000, and 500 $1,000 prizes. Only 500,000 tickets at

                $20 each will be available for sale, and the drawing will occur on June

                30, 2007.


                The person at the gas station told me that the drawing would not happen until all tickets were sold.

                But on the GA lottery website they say the drawing will occur on June 30, 2007.

                Interesting to see what happens.

                        While in Wildwood, GA today I purchased gas for an amazing $2.85 per gallon and waited in line for 10 minutes for people buying these raffle tickets.  I learned my lesson last winter.  Good luck tnlotto1.

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