Just Packers tickets. And a possible tax bill.

You can't even sell the prize.

I don't think so!

    What a rip off.

    You win a prize and you can't do what you want with it?

    I hope everybody takes a pass on that one.

      One more time,

      Dear State of _ _ _ _ _ _ _ lottery,

      Enclosed is $10 (or $20 or $50) that I was going to spend on the state raffle. I really can't stand having this money so badly that I want you to have it, so I thought I'd just mail it in instead of going through the formality of buying a raffle ticket.

      Sincerely

      Your favorite kind of player,

      A. Schmuck

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

      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.

              Thanks for the info markp1950.. All I know about odds is they are against me. But I am still going to play the Kansas Raffle at least once a week. Good luck with the Wis Megabucks

                Does anyone know if the Illinois Lottery is going to have their Halloween raffle this year? It's the same concept as the Kansas one and they usually started it on Oct. 1st but now with our buddies Northstar in charge who knows what they are up to...

                  Not sure ot sure if Northstar will leave it alone or make it even tighter but I'm sure any change won't be to the advantsage of the players.

                  As it has been done it's 500,000 tickets @ $20 a pop, 509 winners. In other words, 509 winners and 499,491 losers, gee which pile do I thin my ticket would wind up in?

                  Four $1,000,000 winners and another $1,000,000 divvied up among the lesser prizes.

                  Guaranteed $5,000,000 for the lottery.

                  One of the most entertaining things on this board s that people who vehemntly hate quick picks and wouldn't put one dollar on one can't wait to buy on or more $20 raffle tickets. Think abouyt that one!

                    Being Wisconsin I think they would be better off having a game based on cheese.

                    The prizes would be sections of a humongous cheese log the size of a telephone pole.

                    They could have a celebrity slice the cheese into a 10' section, a 7' section and a 3' section with a chainsaw for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize.

                    To win though, you would have to guess what celebrity sliced the cheese into those pieces.

                    The name of the game would be "Who Cut The Cheese?"

                          rdgrnr,

                          Have you ever heard "A Packer Prayer" by Bob and Tom? Timmy Ulm from Up Nort'.

                          It's hilarious. Timmy Ulm sits in the stands and eats a wheel of cheese and knocks down some brews and in the last seconds of the game lets out a belch that puts the football into the hands of a receiver in the end zone for a Packer win.

                          ILLotteryman,

                          If you can't stand having the $20 that bad just send it to rdgrnr or me and we will gladly send you a receipt with a list of serial numbers and SORRY NOT A WINNER on it.

                          Maybe Northstar is doing us a favor. Think about this, even if you win $1,000,000 in a raffle, every $1 you spent on the ticket wins $50,000. Whoopee. Hardly like putting $1 down on MM or PB and winning multi-millions. Take a $20 shot on one of those.

                          Raffles are a bookies wet dream.
