Virginia sent me an email telling me that they're giving away a Raffle Ticket with each new $2 Powerball Ticket purchased. I don't know what the prizes are in the raffle cuz they don't mention it in the email but hell, it's better than nothing, which is what Tennessee gives you.

Any other states doing promotions?

    Not sure if Michigan is.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      hey rdgrnr,

      VA raffle is a chance to win $100,000.  The drawing is going to take place on March 1, I think that there are a limited number of raffle tickets they are giving away for this and you only get them when u buy a powerball ticket.

                I haven't seen anything in PA about a promotional bonus for playing Powerball. Really though, PA needs

                to step up and give us something back besides all these repeatin' numbers in the pick 3.

                I wish they'd give a promotion to give away a winning pick 4 straight ticket with a Powerball purchase. Banana

                (Never in a million years, but hey! they can afford it! Let them draw that 209, just like that, then I don't

                need a freebie, it'll be all...take-y Naughty )

                    During the Illinois lottery drawing tonight they said that if you buy two or more PB tickets you get a free QP for Little Lotto (Pick 5)

                    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.

                        Yes indeed...just too bad that promotion is not applicable on the subscription side.  But then again, that too is good news that Illinois residents can now subscribe to play Powerball for 13 weeks, 26 weeks, and even 52 weeks just like Little Lotto, Lotto and Mega Millions! Now that is what I am talking about and had actually asked the Illinois Lottery about many months ago after Illinois started offering Powerball! Glad to know that the private company running the lottery actually listens to its consumer base.

                        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                        The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                          That's cool and it's good they tell you "two or more" cuz then you know you're not going to get five free tickets when you buy ten Powerball tickets together. You have to buy two at a time to get each free ticket.

                          I've been stung like that before when it was "one or more" but they didn't tell you that. I bought five and I got one free, whereas I would have gotten five free tickets if I had bought them one at a time.

                            That's better than being called a bum as you walk out, lol.

                            I think it's a nice gesture when they say good luck though and I appreciate it.

                            I find myself going to one store where the lady says good luck more often than the others I go to.

                            Good Luck CDanaT!

                              I like that subscription option you have there. TN would never do that, somebody might like it.

                              Nice to see a private company showing a little more innovation than the state would have by offering free tickets as incentives to buy PB tickets.

                              Maybe they'll increase revenue for the state enough to build new jails for all your governors, lol.
