Just wow, the peak pace of raffle sales was the highest I ever recall seeing. Upwards of 42K in one day. I believe what helped the pace along was that 222 hit in the PA Daily Number (pick 3) daytime drawing - some cycling a portion of their winnings back into the raffle. At this rate, they'll be sold out early morning. Surprising given how many were left a couple of days ago. I have two tickets (1 in ~42 combined odds) - hoping to win something this go around.

    Sold out! Good luck to those in it. I didn't play this time round. Hopefully other states will model their raffles after this successful raffle.

    That money's gone fo ever

            From looking at the PA Lottery's website, it appears that two of the four million dollar winners were sold late in the sales cycle. 

            I missed $100 by 1 number.  I had 00027627, the $100 winner was 00027628!

            About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

              Neither of my two tickets were even close. On a related note, anyone with PA raffle tickets, double-check them on the scanner. The portion listing $1000 winning numbers is somewhat out of sequence. It wouldn't surprise me if some $1000 winners accidentally throw their tickets away. PA has had problems in the past with the results shown being messed up, and later fixed. Always double-check!
