    I hope you're right, it would mean sales of 35,000 - 36,000 per day.  Eek

    Palki, I guess you're driving down to the Florida border, how long a drive is that?  Are you planning on making more than one trip?  At any rate,  Good Luck!  Thumbs Up

        I was just wondering what the sales figure was.  Thanks for the update.

          I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

          372,000 at around 1:00 today.  So from Saturday at 2:00, to Monday at 1:00, about 34,000 tickets were sold, an average of 17,000 per day.  So sales just squeaked above the 16,300 daily average needed for a sellout.

          I'm pretty sure that by the end of today, sales will reach the halfway mark (375,000.)  With nine days left to sell the other half, a daily average of 41,000 - 42,000 is needed for a sellout.

            While it may not seem like it actually can happen, a rate of 41,000 to 42,000 tickets sold per day is attainable.  I've seen it happen in Pennsylvania with their Millionaire Raffle.

            My thinking is that Wednesday, and Thursday of this week will see a surge in ticket sales.  Not to mention next week on Wednesday and Thursday just prior to the drawing.  Tickets might not sell out, but my guess is more tickets will be sold than most realize.   

            The day before and the day of a raffle are usually big ticket sales days for two reasons.  First the date of the drawing is near, and people don't want to "miss out".  Secondly ticket sales for any online lottery game are always the heaviest on the day of the drawing. G5

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

              Yeah I think there will be a sell out or close to it by the time its new years.

                Even with a sell out the odds are great!  I just hope there is at least one ticket remaining when I make it to FL sometime between the 28th and 30th (the 28th hopefully).  If not, I am still in it though!

                  ‘Twas the night before New Year’s, when all through the house,

                  This Florida lottery feature was causing a rouse,

                  The odds for this raffle were really quite rare,

                  And seven new millionaires soon would be declared,

                  Though we were nestled and snug in the bed,

                  Visions of no mortgage and no bills filled our heads,

                  Mamma with the ticket strapped tight to her lap,

                  Was just waiting for the news station recap,

                  And when the numbers were drawn she rose and she chattered,

                  I sprang to my feet I just knew it was more than a smatter,

                  Dashing for the remote I flew like a flash,

                  And turned up the volume with visions of cash,

                  The room with no lights had an angelic glow,

                  From the TV broadcasting the nightly news show,

                  When what to my wondering eyes did appear,

                  All of the digits that I knew dear,

                  We knew in a moment to head to Tallahassee quick,

                  We’re one of seven, who are the other six?

                      A friend of mine purchased one for me on Sunday afternoon and it is in the high 362k range. I may splurge on another before the 23rd. Even with the better odds, I have a hard time justifying a $20 per ticket donation toward a lottery game...until draw time it's still nice to dream of a possible payout as well as a valid reason to visit Florida Wink.
