    Unfortunately I haven't won anything either fangkid :(, each week I buy about 4 tickets hoping for at least the $500. Luckily, we still have other chances at the end of the year *fingers crossed*

      I had 3 for this drawing and I didn't win either.  However, I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed with some of the "random" numbers being generated.  Here was two of the winning numbers and locations from today's drawing:

      077141 $500.00MIAMIFILE LIQUORS
      077145 $500.00MIAMIFILE LIQUORS

      The tickets were literally 4 tickets apart and purchased from the exact same place.  Given the numbers print sequentially and at a pretty quick pace, the odds are great that one person bought 5 or more tickets at once and won $500 twice.

        True enough gator. I was wondering if a person claims a $500 ticket winner, if that ticket is still eligible for the end of the year drawing or not? does anyone know? I hope I make sense.

          From the FL website:

          Purchase your Holiday MILLIONAIRE RAFFLE tickets by December 23, and in addition to the New Year's Eve drawing, you'll also be automatically entered into the next available weekly drawing for a chance to win the $10,000 prize, or be one of 200 $500 winners!

          Thumbs Up

            I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

            Interesting observation, gator.  Also:

            Friendly Mini Mart, Bonifay   115012,  115013.   $500 winners

            Dyer Food, Kissimmee. 077280, 077638, 078793   $500 winners

            Not exactly sequential but close in sequence

                Average daily sales are inching closer to 8,000 per day, about half of the expected daily average if there's a sellout.  I'm still planning on getting one ticket for each weekly draw, but I think I'll delay any multiple ticket purchases per week until the last two weeks before the draw.  I may try to get a couple at some different stores, too.

                  yeah I plan on buying a ticket for each draw as well and also plan on maybe buying 1 or 2 at the last minute since those seem to be the grand prize winners.

                    I bought some Pennsylvania Raffle tickets yesterday.  They're not selling nearly as well as Florida's.  The ticket numbers were in the high 70 thousands range.   PA has a max of 500,000 and I'm starting to wonder if they'll sell out.  G5

                      Bought a ticket around 1:30, 184,000 range.  That's a 14,000 jump since yesterday.  Looks like things are picking up.

                        With 750,000 total tickets that is still quite a way to go with just a little over three weeks left.  Not that I am complaining, less tickets equal better odds.  I do hope to revisit the lightening capital for another ticket.  Thanks for the update SB.

                          Yeah sales are definitely starting slow, but I still think this will sell out by new years eve. I plan on buying one last ticket as close as I can towards the ending of sales.

                            It must be averaging about 10K tickets a day now.  I bought a ticket at 9am this morning and it was low 180,000.  My co-worker bought one at 6pm tonight and hers was 189,000ish.  By the end of tonight, another 1,000 will sell.  I wonder if it is the upcoming deadline on the second chance promotion or if people are just buying more tickets at the final drawing gets closer.

                              Don't forget Christmas is a little over two weeks away.  People love to give them as Christmas gifts.  Sales will skyrocket just before Dec 25th. G5
