      Tickets are now around 420,000 around 6pm. I think sales have picked up today due the weekly drawing tomorrow. I believe sales will fall again Thursday and Friday, but pick up tremendous steam from Saturday to Wednesday (the last day before the final drawing).

            Winning numbers are out and once again, I didn't win anything lol. I've bought nine tickets so far with at least one for each weekly drawing...my luck with this is terrible lol. Well I'm going to buy one last ticket this week and hope that i've been losing every week because maybe i'll win one of the millions this week.

              Does anyone know if the $1 million top prize is paid out as an annuity? With all this talk about fraud RNG's I am getting somewhat nervous about the possibility with this raffle being compromised as well....I hope I'm wrong about this suspicion.

              Good luck to all who have a ticket for tonight's drawing.

                Can you explain what you mean? I'm sure most know what you're talking about, but for some reason i don't lol. What do you mean by RNG and the possibility of the raffle being compromised?

                  RNG is an acronym for "random number generator". In terms of the raffle being compromised, I was concerned that since many states have had issues with fraudulent computer generated numbers that perhaps the millionaire raffle game may have been altered/rigged as well.

                    If you are seriously worrying about the lotteries you play being rigged Drenick, I would highly advise you to not play them.  Simply because such worry can have detrimental impacts on health.  Yes states have had issues in their lotteries.  Many of the issues trace back to a relating source, one that has been identified.  If I truly thought I couldn't win a lottery game for any reason I simply would just not play that particular game or state lottery.  However, I never let allegations or rumors determine such action.  Only verifiable proof.

                      I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

                              496,900 at 8:00 AM Sunday.   With four more sales days (Sun. thru Wed.) a daily sales average of around 63,000 is needed for a sellout.  I expect a lot of last-minute sales on the 30th.  Personally, I'm planning on buying one ticket per day.
