    They only sell x amount of tickets, usually for $10.00 or $20.00 dollars.

    You get a serial number on your ticket.

    They go in sequential order.

    They have a top prize, middle prizes and lower tier prizes.

    example for Mi.

    6 prizes fo $1,000,000

    12 prizes for 100,000

    2000 prizes for $500.00

    4000 prizes for $100.00

    only 600,000 tickets will be sold.

    have fun.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      Colorado recently held it's first raffle which is a good example. They sold 280,000 tix @ $20 each. There were 2 $1 million dollar prizes offered, so the odds for 1 ticket were 1/140,000 to win the million. Then there were 3 $100,000 prizes, 5 $10,000, and 500 $1000 winners.

      All the tix were numbered from 000001 to 280000 and they draw the winners from those numbers.
