1.  Anyone know when the new raffle starts?

2.  What would you buy in Oregon if you had the chance and an extra $50?

    I can't answer your first question I don't think they've announced a date yet, but on your second question I would buy some lines of Megabucks. You get two lines for a dollar and you can play up to 26 draws ahead.


    Save a Trip: Buy up to 26 Consecutive Drawings for just $25!
    You can now play 26 draws in advance for $25! If you would like to plan ahead for a vacation or simply have a busy schedule, you can easily stay in the game with this advance play discount. Visit a Lottery retailer or stop by a player-operated terminal to purchase your advance draws. 

    You have the option to play your numbers for the following consecutive draws:

    • Game slip: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 20 or 26 for $25.
    • Terminal: 1 through 24 or 26 for $25.

      And you get a $1 discount if you buy 26 advance draws for ONLY $25.  LOL

      The rules say cash option is 50% of the jackpot.  Doesn't that seem like a deep cut?  Wonder why it's so much less than MM or PB?  So anyway, the current cash value is 2.1 mil.

        I think that they are only having two raffles this year.  St. patricks day and thanksgiving because it is too late for a halloween one like last year. Good luck to you!-weshar75

          MyTurn, thanks for posting about Mega Doubler, I saw a previous post of yours and have a season ticket for that.

          Weshar, do you know when the Thanksgiving one starts?  How long does Oregon sell tickets?  Idaho sells for about 3 months for the winter raffle that draws on NYE.

                  So HLK- how long are you going to be sitting behind the wheel from the time you leave your driveway till you get to the nearest Lottery retailer in Oregon?

                  Just wondering..

                    Fifty minutes to an hour.  I can go have lunch, buy my tickets, and be home within 3 hours easy.

                      Not bad, takes me 90 minutes to get to Delaware, 3 hours round trip, no lunch.

                        Takes me 1 1/2 hours to Texas so not bad at all. Have a safe trip....

                          Just saw this on their website:

                          The Raffle is your best chance to win a million bucks. The next one will be on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2016. Tickets will go on sale at the beginning of the new year.

                          ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

                          Darn it!  Oh well that'll save me some money.  I'm still only buying 1 Idaho raffle ticket because I hate the prize structure.

                              Sure!  What kind of a neighbor would I be if I couldn't pick up a friend from Wisconsin?
