I've no idea if what has happened in the past with some of Pennsylvania's Millionaire raffles will apply to Florida, but PA has seen a rate per day of 40,000 near the end the sales cycle for some of their raffles.  IMHO, 18000 tickets sold per day during the holiday week could be low. 

Don't get me wrong, I have two tickets for this Fla raffle, so I'm hoping they don't sell out too! G5 

I was in on an the Ohio New Years raffle last year.  Tickets did not sale out, however the lottery extended sales to the "New Years" drawing by a few days so "people who didn't have a chance to buy could get a ticket".  Players were Pissed off big time.  I'd rather see it sell out than the lottery pull a stunt like Ohio did.

  I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

      That sucks big time.  I've seen a couple of raffles that didn't sell out, but the states that sponsored them didn't delay the drawing to extend sales.  In July of 2014, Connecticut sold less than half of the maximum of 275,000 tickets in their millionaire raffle. It was held as scheduled, but they haven't held one since it happened either.  I cant help but wonder if they don't have them any more because of what happened.  G5 

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

        Ticket sales required to break even are 436,250 in the Florida Raffle.  That doesn't include prizes for the Playoff Bonus on field drawing or the costs associated with the stay of the 10 contestants, or any administrative and hard costs associated with the raffle.

            Just wanted you guys to be aware that the winning numbers for the Florida Lottery Raffle are posted on Lottery Post's Florida Lottery Results page.  Scroll down and click on the raffle link in the Raffles section.

            I am publishing the weekly drawing winning numbers each Thursday, including the 10 bonus numbers that were drawn last week (something that is a bit difficult to locate on the official Florida Lottery website).

             

            Check the State Lottery Report Card
            What grade did your lottery earn?

              Thanks for the update SB.  Seems to be selling at a rate of 15,000 a day for the last few.  I still hope to make it there to get a ticket in the higher number range.

                            323,000 at 1:30 today.  So from Tuesday the 15th at 2:00 to Friday the 18th at 1:30, about 43,200 tickets have been sold.  The average sold per day for these three days is 14,400, which still falls short of the average of 16,300 sold per day if there's a sellout.  I expect heavy sales this weekend, though.
