After the last time, I swore I wouldn't buy another Millionaire Raffle ticket, but who was I kidding?? Lol! This time they're selling 250,000 fewer tickets, and running the promotion for 6 weeks.

5 $1,000,000 prizes

10 of $100,000

25 of $10,000

and 2,500 of $500

After almost 4 weeks they've sold about 230,000 tickets.

Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

    They're having a spring raffle in Idaho as well, but it is for one $500,000 prize and then a bunch of smaller prizes. But Idaho has a lot less residents then Florida so the amount of tickets and prizes are a lot less. For the past couple of years, they've been doing the millionaire raffle during the winter, but I guess they decided they were popular enough to have one in the spring as well. I wasn't going to buy any tickets but they were only $5.00 each instead of the usual $10.00, so I bought 4.

      That's a bargain!

          I thought there was only 3 million $ prizes so I bought 3 raffle tickets down there last week so I could win all 3 of em. If I'da known there was 5 I'da bought 5.

          Dag nab it!

          Sweated my arse off down there for a week and now I can't even win all 5 million!

(Not that it matters to me anyway, I'm married afterall) (Decent married men aren't interested in information like that) (Far be it from me to even think about it) (I visited both places but there's no way I paid any attention to that) (Even with my dark glasses on so my wife couldn't see where I was looking I didn't look) (Why would I want to look at that? I'm married! That's crazy!)

          Florida Funky Fact: Cashing in a ticket at the Florida Lottery District Office on 14th St. in Miami can be a long, trying, unpleasant experience.

            my husband doesn't look either and he didn't almost knock an old man down not looking, I didn't know a neck could twist that far.

                      North Carolina is having another Raffle and i was thinking about buying 5 raffle tickets at $20 a piece. Does anyone think you would have a better chance at buying all the tickets at the same time and having all the numbers together ex.    xxx,001  xxx,002  xxx,003  xxx,004  xxx,05 or just buying one say once a week till you got the 5 tickets?

                          7 days and counting til I win the raffle with all 3 of my tickets.

                          My patented Hocus-Pocus, Mumbo-Jumbo System says it's a lock.

                          All indicators are pointing to two of the tickets being million dollar winners and one being a $100,000 winner.

                          I can't wait to get snooty.
