If a raffle was nationwide, it would lose its appear to me because of the reason I play. There is not a lot of competition and there are lots of winners only in one state.  The odds of winning are better. Nationwide wouldn't be any different than a huge jackpot game to me.

      You make a valid point tenaj but I'm so dam old, the little nuances don't hardly matter anymore.

      I might rise above

      I might go below

      I ride with the tide

      And go with the flow

            I think a nationwide raffle would be alright. $100,000,000 cash.

              I think it's high time we had a nationwide raffle.

              There could be huge prizes while keeping the ticket price reasonable.

              What do you think about it and what do you think the tickets should cost?

              I voted NO.

              Better odds playing the lotteries.

              IMHO, The chance of a Nationwide raffle is slim to none, with emphasis on the none.
              It would take an act of Congress, and we know how that works. Unless each and every politician
              can find a way to get a piece of the action, there will be no vote.

              Besides, the individual states would oppose it.

              The Texas Lottery tried to get on that gravy train last year, but, the Attorney General said no way, Jose.

              It might be possible for the MM and PB folks to agree on something, but I think they would rather
              use their ammo on another jackpot lottery game.

                Nationwide doesnt necesarily demand that ALL 50 states participate.

                I still said no, for the obvious reasons- More participants, less chance. ANy time New York or Florida get involved, They get the winners and I am left as a whiner. Why feed them when I can feed myself with winning just my state lottery .

                I already particpate in the Powerrball and Mega so they already are contributions to the Nationwide trend.

                 Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014
