      I bought a few tickets last year and spaced them out over the course of a few weeks.

      From what I could tell based on the ticket numbers I had, it seemed like early ticket sales were a little slow.  Then they really started to move between Christmas and the drawing.

      Maybe people have a harder time parting with $20 in the weeks before Christmas?  Or they are just procrastinators who wait until the last minute to buy?  LOL

        I spent $20 almost every time I play the lotteries, I'm just not a fan of raffles.

          If you don't feel lucky when you only play one line then I am like you. I know that I only need one line but when I buy one line I am left with this nagging feeling that I need to do more\buy more lines. It is for this reason that I am not a fan of raffles even though I did buy 2 tickets of the ultimate raffle. The El Gordo.

              Yep, I would rather spend $20 on 10 PB or MM tickets and have 10 chances at winning $1M.

                Yes.  The results will be posted at 8:30 pm on January 2nd, according to the Ohio Lottery website.

                When I looked to refresh my memory on what happened last year, I found that the numbers were posted on January 2nd last year as well.  I can't remember what time the drawing actually occurred.

                      There must have been a big jump in ticket sales on NYE!

                      I bought a ticket around 6 pm or so on December 31st, and it was #423091.  The ticket I bought on December 28th was #303595.

                      Tickets must not have sold out though, because I saw that the sales were extended until 2 pm today.  Drawing is tonight, and ticket sales were supposed to end yesterday.

                        BTW -  I have 3 tickets total - the 2 numbers I mentioned above, and also ticket #7219.  I doubt that I'll buy another.  Last year, I bought 5 tickets and had a $100 winner, so I broke even.

                        I bought them spaced out, so I basically had one ticket in the 100K range, one in the 200K range, etc.

                        (I don't mind spending $100 close to raffle time, because we usually get $1,000 cash for Christmas from a family member anyhow.  I use the bulk of that money for practical purposes - savings or true necessities.  So I don't mind taking a little bit for the chance at winning more at the raffle.)

                          Anybody win this?  The Idaho drawing is tonight.  Looking forward to it even though we did sell out.

                          Good luck everyone!

                            Update:  Apparently they didn't sell all the tickets.

                            Curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to pick up a 4th ticket at the last minute.

                            Ticket sales were supposed to end at 2 pm.  The time stamp on my ticket is 1:58 pm.  It's ticket #456799.

                              The winning numbers will be posted online at 8:30 tonight.

                              Guess everyone could find out if I won, since all of my ticket numbers are posted here. Lol
