Personally I'm no fan of raffles as conducted by the lottery, but to each his own.
I do find it incredible that people will willingly fork over $10 to $50 for a ticket with a top prize of $1,000,000 as opposed to a $1 ticket with prizes of anything from that same $1,000,000 to hundreds of millions.
If it was true that another dollar could cut the odds in half, imagine what the amount spent on the raffles could do.
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.
