Bah, Humbug!

The Florida Lottery has confirmed that there will be no holiday raffle in the state of Florida this year. 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Floridians!

    Dirty B%#d!@#$

    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

    You never know when you will get another hit.

            Could be because of all the money you are winning in Fla...Stop looking at your wall to get the winners and maybe they would sell some raffle tickets...Pure luck baby!!..

                                                                      Pure luck

                    Maybe players are just starting to see through raffles.

                    In Illinois it's 500,000 tickets, 509 winners...which leaves 499,491 losers.

                    The hype is it's the best chance to win a million, which is true, BUT, it's a million for a $20 ticket, not a $1 ticket.

                    In a jackpot game with a solo winner, the $1 wins multi-millions.

                    In a raffle game a ticket that wins $1 million breaks down to each dollar of the 20 winning $50,000.

                    0.001018% winners.

                    0.998982% losers

                    Not such a great deal after all.

                    "Relative to the buy in" that really stinks.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    Lep

                    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.

                      It could be that the FL lottery had over 150,000 tickets that they didn't sell for thier last raffle...

                      Maybe being the second highest ranking state for foreclosures and high unemployment, has the lottery"wuz up?"

                      This year they have raised all of the odds and lowered the number of payouts on the scratch off tickets and have come up with new games that promise to pay millions and that hasn't happened yet!

                      People aren't stupid, they will gamble elsewhere.

                        same here in Mich, keep hoping it will get better.
