With all the excitement around raffles this time of year, I reached out to the Arkansas Lottery to see where things standard with regard to the Million Dollar Raffle.
Unlike other states, which set a definite draw date (or target date for the drawing), the Arkansas Lottery is not setting a draw date at all; in fact they will not provided even the smallest hint about a draw date, except to say, "The draw is scheduled to take place upon sellout."
The raffle has 500,000 tickets available, and as of midnight last night (Jan. 2, 2011), 230,129 tickets had been sold.
Tickets went on sale Wednesday, July 14, 2010. There was a minor glitch the first week of sales.
