So, does anyone know which lotterys are offering special Christmas draws? Like raffles or large jackpots!

UK Lotto is offering 500 winners of £20,000 in the raffle

I don't think Euro Millions is offering much but it's at £60M!

Might treat myself to a Euro ticket and a UK Lotto ticket tomorrow since I haven't been buying any for a while now.

What about you folks in America?

2016 Won/Lost

EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

2016 Total: -£24

Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

 

EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

    Use to be most states would skip having a drawing on Christmas day but now most drawings that normally happens on Wednesday will take place regardless.

      I am so glad WA state didn't put on a holiday raffle this year because of last years debacle.. The lotto officals got huge backlash on the major screw up on the raffle drawings.

        Most of the States have New Years draws, no Christmas. Have tics for Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Virginia.

          The Arizona lottery officials also appear to be less than competent, since most of the website pages have been offline since Dec 17th.

              Where I live we have the 50/50 Raffle. Players keep buying tickets and on the draw date one person walks away with half of the jackpot. It is not my kind of raffle.

              That money's gone fo ever

                  Louisiana does not have drawings on Christmas for the state's games, i.e. Pick 3, Pick 4, Easy 5, and Lotto. However, Powerball will draw on Christmas since it's a multistate game.

                    Happy holidays Josh. Here in New York the lottery usually shuts down on Xmas. But from what I understand, and see from my bets, they will holding drawings tonight on all games. I'm unsure if their running midday bets on numbers and win4 though. I imagine they are it would only make sense. US Flag
