Your welcome, and good luck to everyone else who's playing. I happened to see the Lottery made an announcement yesterday, and according to their count at noon yesterday, they sold a solid 4000 tickets in just over 2 hours. Either they misrepresented how many have sold, or sales have picked up. Here's part of the article FWIW:

Less Than 68,000 Tickets Remain for $5,089,200 in Prizes to 6,000 Winners

MIDDLETOWN, Pa., July 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On July 4, the Pennsylvania Lottery's Millionaire Raffle will award 6,000 prizes totaling $5,089,200 - including four $1 million top prizes and four $100,000 prizes.

 

As of noon, 67,766 $20 Millionaire Raffle tickets remained available for sale. Sales of Millionaire Raffle tickets began on April 27 and will continue until 5 p.m. on July 4, or until all 500,000 tickets are sold, which ever comes first.

 

"The previous seven Millionaire Raffle games sold out before the drawing, so we encourage players to buy tickets now before they sell out," said Lottery Executive Director Ed Trees.

    Bought one at 9pm tonight.

    The count is only 438,000+

    61,000+ left

    I don't think they'll sell out this year.

    18 hours left for sales.

    20 hours left until draw.

    Good luck!

        I can officially say.... Neither of my tickets came even CLOSE to the 1$ million ticket numbers or the 100k numbers!

        Sorta should learn, lady luck rarely rides the bus I am on.

        Crossing fingers that I get at least 100 dollars back

         

        Would like to back test  though based on the dates some of us said we bought our ticket, would be interesting to narrow down the dates the big winning tickets were bought...

          Sorry to hear you didn't get a million, but there's always hope for the $100 I guess. I don't know what any of the numbers were, since I just got up for work tonight. I don't see anything posted on PA's website yet, so it looks like I'll just have to wait until tomorrow. I checked my bets on the horses though and hit a pick-3 at Hollywood for $110, so I get to feel like a little winner tonight :)
