I finally track down the information about the new raffle a day before the tickets go on sale. I got a good feeling the tickets will sell out fast because it is a short raffle time. Who's buying?

                    THE FLORIDA LOTTERY'S POPULAR MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE™ IS BACK -WITH THE BEST ODDS TO WIN $1 MILLION
                                                 ~ A New Millionaire Every Monday and a $2 Million Grand Prize ~

 

To celebrate the Florida Lottery's upcoming 25th Anniversary and the Year of the Flamingo, the Lottery is launching the 25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE™. With only one million tickets available, the game offers the best odds of winning $1 million among all Lottery games currently on sale. The $20 tickets go on sale Friday, November 9, and will remain on sale through Sunday, December 30, or until all one million tickets sell out - whichever occurs first.

"Florida Lottery players love Raffle games and this is a way to give back to our players," said Florida Lottery Secretary Cindy O'Connell. "With six weekly drawings for $1 million and a $2 million Grand Prize, players will love this 25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE!"

Each ticket features a unique number that will be automatically entered into one of six weekly 25th Anniversary MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE drawing(s) depending on the date of purchase. Weekly drawings will be held from November 19 through December 24, and the Grand Prize drawing will be held on December 31, 2012. Tickets purchased by December 23, 2012 will qualify for a weekly drawing and the New Year's Eve Grand Prize drawing. Tickets purchased after December 23, 2012 will qualify only for the Grand Prize drawing.

    In Idaho, sales start out pretty slow.  This would be to your advantage to buy your ticket for the first weekly draw if the same is true in Florida. 

    Good luck, hope to see you posting that you won this.

        I don't know, they haven't been able to sell out the last 2 or 3 times that they have had the raffle.

        I do know that I will miss the chance to buy a ticket... on purpose.

            It is true the last few times they did not sell out. But I think this one will be a success because each ticket has 2 shots at winning. The weekly draw and the $2 Million New Years Eve draw. I also found out in case of an early sell-out. All raffle tickets, excluding previous $1 million winners, will be included in the sudsequent weekly drawings to award any remaining prizes.

                  Bought another raffle ticket this morning. Almost 7,000 tickets sold. You got to be in it to win it.

                      In it to win it is the only way I Play!!! I'm assuming you found the amount of tickets sold somewhere  on the fla lottery website but, where exactly is this

                      information located??

                        Wow, they're selling really slow!  Even Idaho has sold 50K already and there are only 250K tickets in the raffle.

                          I'll be puchasing a ticket on Nov 18 in the evening, and will post to this thread about how many tickets have been sold to that point (if the calculation remain consistant we are averaging about 4200 tickets sold per day.  That would be about 42,000 tickets for the Nov 19th drawing.

                           

                          Hope the numbers stay small, so we all have a better shot at a prize (any prize!)

                            The tickets is sold in sequence. Whenever I buy a ticket I post the ticket number range. I bought another ticket this morning an it was low 21,000.

                              Is that ticket entered in all the drawings or just one weekly and the grand prize.?
