Is anyone else planning on playing this? I plan on getting one tomorrow, maybe 4 more next month if they don't sell out.  Seems to be pretty good odds on winning at least $500

    For sure there will be 9 millionaires after the holidays, each 1 million in prize, no splitting :)

    When we have them in GA they sold out within a month. Good luck!!

      Yesterday when I was in Naples, I passed a Publix supermarket and decided to buy my lottery tickets. I walked up to the counter to purchase my Fantasy5 and Wed night Lotto tickets and then got one of those "feelings" (you know what I mean!) we talk about here and asked for a Holiday Raffle ticket.   Well, the woman who was scratching next to me interrupted and asked for another "number 5" or whatever instant game she was playing.  I usually would shrug it off and give her a dirty look, but she had one of those annoying Fran Drescher type accents (my apologies to our friends from Queens lol) so I said "Please wait your turn.  I'm still conducting business."  She told me she was there first, so I calmly asked if, after she orders a meal, she holds up the line while she eats it in case she feels like some dessert.  The clerk asked her which one she wanted and proceeded to tear it off from the roll, so I didn't want to cause a scene.  So I left without buying my raffle ticket.  I figured she spoiled my "moment."   (Or maybe she saved me $20 I can use more productively.)
