The latest Michigan $10 raffle has a virtually unlimited number of tickets.

How many tickets do you buy?

If you buy one, and it was going to win, and then buy another one and change the number of tickets in the  pool so that you then lose then you have wasted your money.

So how many tickets do you buy when the number of tickets is virtually unlimited?

The question is easier when the number of tickets is limited but we are talking the latest Michigan raffle here.

          Just buy how many you want. I wouldn't think one for one leaves my chances
          at winning nothing. I'd look at it as having better odds.
          Good luck!

            Regardless of how many tickets you buy for this raffle, the odds of winning are still 1 in 30,000. Buy as many as you like, your chance of winning is going to stay the same (1 in 30,000).
