I am in the same boat and planning on getting 14 tickets for the MI New Year raffle too and odds are way better here. They do post the ticket counts online in MI but not looking like sellout at all. They do reserved the option of extending it though...

    rdgrnr and Rowen:

    They will have the drawing regardless if all the tickets are sold or not and the prize values will remain the same.

    I do believe that "not" all the tickets were sold the last raffle drawing though in Ohio?

    However, less tickets into the pot will increase the odds slightly. But still a good try for a jackpot with the odds.

        I hope it is one of the lucky ones drawn Jan 2, 2010!

        Hey ohiopick3, I got a notion to play that 4277 on the pick4. Think I will, in VA next time I'm up there.

        Are you sticking with one ticket on the raffle? Just curious.

          Just one week and two days before the drawing!  I just called the Ohio Lottery and they said as of last night that 219,972 have been sold, so there is still 280,028 available.  It will be interesting to see if they sell out.

          Also, I started saving $20 again as of this payday for next year and as long as I continue to save $20 per payday (which I plan on doing) then I'll have $520.00 saved for next years raffle and I can purchase 26 tickets by this time next year.

          It's something everyone may want to think about if you want to spend that kind of money on the raffle but I figure the more tickets you purchase the better the odds of are winning something!  Good luck to everyone!  It may be a really happy new year for one of us!  Big Smile

                  Better odds for us if they don't sell out.  They need to sell about 217,000.   In about five days.

                    Just wow and they won't be extending the draw date either. This may be too good to pass up. Same thing happen in Missouri last year too when they undersold and now they have stop holding raffle anymore. Wonder how far it is to the ohio border from IL...

                      Wow!  They only have 3 full days (including today) to sell the tickets.  I remember they didn't sell out the year before last but I don't believe it was this bad!  I'm going to try to remember to call the lottery on December 31st and see how many they've sold so far, it will be interesting to see.

                        It must actually be 4 days left according to their website, so they must be selling the tickets on January 1st as well before the drawing on January 2nd.

                          Keep us posted. I am planning on making a road trip Thursday or Friday to pick some up. Hopefully they don't sell out by then.

                            Rowen, I just spoke with Tim at the Ohio Lottery office at 5:02pm and he said as of yesterday they have sold 285,710 tickets and he said that ticket sales will end on January 2, 2010 at Noon and results will be posted at 9:00pm on January 2nd on the website.  Good luck if you're buying any!  See Ya!

                              The bad thing for me if I win smaller prizes is to drive all the way back just to claim a hundred dollar and what are the odds that someone will actually have some cash to pay me $500. I never won that much so don't know how to collect. May have to take my winnings in beef jerky and scratchers...LOL
