I love raffle games. I usually Buy 5 tickets on the $20 Dollar games. I will Buy 10 of these at Different Stores.This is about the best odds you will have at winning something Significant.

Odds of this raffle 

$700,000  1:142,857

Fantasy 5 - Which Lets Say pays an average of $80,000 to $100,000 (There are usually more than 1 Winner most of the time)

The Odds - 1:376,992

Mega Money 

Average pay out - $800,000 Approx 

The Odds - 1:2,986,522 

I am In Big time !!!! Thumbs Up

I agree, Also may be wise to spread them out also. Some from beginning, middle & end...Just keep track of how many tickets are left so you get them before sell out.

 

This raffle will sell out. The main reason the raffle did NOT sell out last time is because they were $20 bux. The lottery listened to the players this time and make them only $10 bux per ticket

 

GOOD LUCK

          But you could buy 10 Fantasy Fives for the same price, reducing odds to 1:37,699.

           

          Just sayin....

           

          But good luck with the raffle.  I probably wouldn't play if one came to my state - just because I usually spend a like 3 bucks a day on lottery nowadays, and wouldn't want to spend that much on one ticket.

            Picked up some Lucky 7 Raffle tickets.  Sitting at 39000 so we are nearing the halfway point to getting up to 100,000.  I would have thought the first 100K would have been gone by now.  I'll check again by Sunday, but I think flalottery was looking and hoping to get 150,000 per week if they are gonna sell out. 

            I still think they flooded the market a bit, although some people may still be getting their tax returns coming in through the 15th.  It's just that they just came out with new games in January, then again in March, not too mention the special Holiday tickets which a few are still on the shelves,  Advertising has been decent but will probably ramp up a bit more through April.

            Good luck to all!

              I was watching the news scroll by on the FL state lottery site and saw that Palm City had someone that hit Fantasy 5 by themselves which is getting rare and after yesterday's 47 winners,  reeeedicuolous.  Whoo plays 14 to 18 consecutive and were they playing other consecutive stings daily?  What in the world were 47 people all playing the same numbers like that.   STrange.

              It was at a Palm City Publix, located at 1395 S.W. Martin Highway

                True, but with Fantasy 5, a player cant not win anything close to $700,000 =)

                 

                These days there are multiple winners on Fantasy 5 and the jackpots are averaging close to $40,000-$125,000 per win due to players splitting the jackpots

                      Update:

                       

                      Took a quick break to run to gas station and the Raffle is only on ticket # 50,000+

                       

                      Yesterdays tickets were around the 39,000 range early in the day. Im kinda surprised they havent sold more tickets than this. Only 10,000 tickets sold since yesterday. If they go at this rate I doubt they will sell out. Still time left though

                        I will get atleast one of these. 

                         Really not a bad deal at all, considering you get a free lotto ticket. The $20 raffle was a little much for me..

                        Good Luck Everyone!!

                          Remember Briz the Economy is not doing that great which is probably why they have not sold out yet. But it's a great Deal. I purchased a few Myself. I think its worth it.

                            did u see that Louisiana has a $1 million raffle with $10?  Now, FL has more people than Louisiana.

                            Another rip=off for FL Lotto players.

                              Luis - true, BUT Lousiana's raffle is only giving away 1 - $1Million dollar prize =)

                               

                              They are also only selling 300,000 raffle tickets. I'd rather have several chances at winning $700,000 bux vs 1 chance of winning a Mil

                               

                              From LA lottery site:

                              "In the finale drawing, one $1 million winning raffle number will be drawn from those sold, along with 20 numbers worth $20,000 each."
