      Well PA is going to seem to sell out EXACTLY on time as usual. Skeptical

      I gave in and got my ticket earlier today. They claim they sold over 75% so far. I hate spending that much for a ticket, but you can't beat those odds for a million. Last year I was very close to the million, but not close enough to make me go nuts. Hope to hit it dead on this time so I can start my new life and live off of the compound interest, and build up to several million eventually. See you at lottery headquarters!

        Good luck on the drawing sirbrad. The Idaho raffle drawing (which I bought some tickets) is on the 31st. They claimed it would be as early as the 26th if the tickets sold out, but they seemed to have changed their minds. Roll Eyes

            All up but the $100 ones, so far did not win crap as usual. 300 numbers off from the $1,000. I still do not believe PA actually sold that many tickets that soon. I don't doubt that at least half belongs to the PA lottery themselves.

                    to answer your question i would say all of the above because i try to buy a raffle ticket on the first day and also near the middle of the sales period and if i can make it i try to buy a raffle ticket on the final weekend of raffle sales but one time i tried to do that in illinois and it sold out before i could make it back up there.

                      15 numbers off from the 100. I am glad I only bought one ticket. If I were to buy multiple tickets, I would definitely spread them out due to past results. Of course then I would probably lose by just one number then, which would have won if I bought all the tickets together. $20 seems great for such odds at a million dollars, but to me this game just feels like a rip off.

                      Especially since it is not $1,000,000 after taxes, and it is stupid to have the same amount of prizes and odds for $100,000. There is a big difference between $100,000 and $1,000,000, but I guess the PA lottery doesn't think so.

                        Sorry you didn't win anything, but it doesn't mean raffles are a rip-off because you didn't win. They odds are still better of winning something compared to bigger games. wpb who only bought one ticket in the NC raffle, won $100 dollars in the drawing held on 27th.

                          I don't remember ever seeing any press conferences and or photos for any of these raffles, so I have a right to be skeptical. But even they could be faked. I guess until I actually win one and have the money in the bank, I will always be very skeptical. Especially since there is no way to prove how many tickets they sold, or "kept." So I guess privacy is not a good thing, except to those who supposedly win.

                          I am not fully convinced this game or any other lottery for that matter are not scams in some way. Especially these raffles where we have to "take their word" about how many tickets are sold.

                            I don't think that the PA raffle (or many of the others as well) are scams at all because it doesn't have to be when you do the math. The PA raffle sold 625,000 tickets X $20 =$12,500,000 sales total

                            Prizes payout are:

                            5 x $1,000,000=$5,000,000

                            5 x  $100,000= $500,000

                            200 x $1,000= $200,000

                            7790 x $100= $779,000

                            ----------------------------------

                            Total prizes payout =$6,479,000

                            Net profit=$12,500,000 -$6,479,000=$6,021,000 so they took in about 48% plus any winnings above $2500 they deduct 25% federal tax so more money for the government even if you win..

                            seems reasonable to me they way they created the format its ~50% winners ~50% lottery profit

                            no scam
