Idaho Lottery is finally holding a raffle with 250,000 tickets selling for $10 each, starting Nov 11.  Drawing on Dec 26 if tickets are sold out.  Dec. 31 if they're not.  Prizes are:

1-  1 million

4 - $25,000

300 - $500 

500 - $100

Think I'll buy me a couple tickets for this one.

      Thank you!

      I know there're other Idaho players here.  Y'all planning to play?

        Holy carp, there's an article at the Idaho Lottery site saying several workplaces and families are starting pools for this.  For a mere million!  Me thinks they haven't thought out how much (little) they'll get if they actually do win the million.  Tickets are only $10, buy your own for heaven's sake.

        So, any other Idahoans buying raffle ticket(s)?

          I bought my first raffle ticket today, only in the 65,000 range.  For some reason I thought they'd be selling faster.  I think I'll buy one more the first week of December.

          Where'd all the rest of you Idahoans go?  I know I've seen you posting!  See Ya!

            I've bought three so far. I bought one on the 11th (the day they started selling them), one on the 16th and one today.  I did it this way because I wanted a variety of numbers not close to each other.  I may get another one on December 1st or a bit later if they are not sold out by then.  Good luck Lilly!

              Good luck to you too, TSC!  Do you mind telling me if your last ticket in in the 100 thousand range?  Just wondering about how many have sold.  I still only have one, but will buy another next week.

                That you!  I don't want to say the exact number, because I don't want to jinx my ticket, but it was over 120,000. Hope that helps. =)

                  Yep, that's exactly what I wanted, thanks! 

                  Looks like they might sell out, huh?  Half gone in less than 2 weeks, and still a month left.  Guess I should make sure to get one soon before they're gone.

                    Oops. I see I had a spelling error in my previous post. It should have said Thank you, not That You. lol.

                    Yeah, I think they will sell out early. Probably due to the fact that this is our first Raffle. I will probably get another ticket sometime next week.

                      Bought one around 11 am today (Friday Nov 23) and it's almost 129,000.  I thought sales might be higher with all the people out christmas shopping, but maybe they're all still at the mall.

                        I'm going to get another one later today when I pick up my Powerball tickets. I am thinking it will be my last one. Four should be enough. But watch me, I'll end up posting that I ended up buying a fifth ticket anyways. LOL

                          I just got back from buying it. My mom thinks I should buy one more next Friday or Saturday. So I may end up buying five altogether. Yes Nod

                             I've been coming up with excuses to buy more, too. 

                            "It's my Christmas present to myself." 

                            "I've spent $100 for a chance at the St. Jude's dream home, and top prize is only worth $350K.  It's not out of line to spend that much for a chance at $1,000,000!"  

                            "If tickets don't sell out, Idaho may not have another raffle.  Gotta buy another to help sell it out."  

                            Anybody have more justifications I could use?  Wink
