    Sorry, I dont have any recent numbers, but I do drive over to PA and buy raffle tickets and will be going soon to buy some.  I wanted to keep this topic near the top of the forum so that's why I replied.  It was starting to fall towards the bottom of my screen.  G5

      Just broke the 200K mark this evening.  Less than 12 days remaining, need to avg. around 25K per day to sell out.

            311k sold as of this am.  Need to average 35k sold per day to sell out,  which is really pushing it to sell out completely. Sales e nd at 8 pm Saturday.

              I heard "just under 350,000" as of this afternoon.   I'm thinking it wont sell out, and perhaps the 300 million dollar PowerBall jackpot might have something to do with soft sales.  G5

                It was 350k around 830 this am.  They will not sell out at this rate.

                  Then another bust?

                  Bust meaning they will be left with tickets AGAIN.

                  Wake up call PA.....slow down, pay up and replace greed with sense.

                  They've got too much going and need to rethink a few things.

                    I got some for the VA raffle. They only sold 300k and they sold out. They also added a separate 1k raffle. Maybe Pa should look at that. It's also better odds.

                      Not to argue with anyone ... there is NOTHING wrong with the PA Raffle. They have sold 300,000 plus tickets and have all the prizes covered.

                      I am very happy as a player with low ticket sales ... as long as the Lottery doesn't lose money on the game. I am not one bit sad for the Lottery not having a "sell-out".

                      I don't work for them nor do I wish to ... if they make a few million dollars less on the raffle, so be it.

                      Why is it so terrible for the lottery player to get a small break every so often ... either buy a ticket or pass on the game ... please do not shed any tears for the PA Lottery or lose sleep over the fact that the Lottery didn't sell all 500,000 tickets.

                      It's not rocket science ... less tickets sold = a better chance to win $1 million dollars !!!

                      They may actually sell all the tickets on the very last day ... which will make me terribly sad, actually pi**ed off ... the player gets the shaft again!

                        Still no tickets remaining countdown on Pa lottery website.  I figured it would be posted by now.

                          Still no tickets remaining countdown on Pa lottery website.  I figured it would be posted by now.

                          I just got back from PA, and at 12:03 PM and again at 12:10 I bought a total of 8 tickets for the pool I run at work.  (I bought 4 in a cigar store, and 4 more at a supermarket next door to the cigar store)

                          The lowest number in the first set of 4 was in the range of 421450 to 421470.

                          The second set of 4 (purchased 7 minutes later) was between 421700 to 421720. 

                          In addition, the "gaps" between ticket numbers was as low as 0 to a maximum of 4. 

                          So as you can see, they're selling at a very fast rate.  I think it'll be very close to a sellout if not completely sold out tomorrow.  G5

                            Amazing increase on sell-through lately considering how lousy sales were even just a few weeks ago. Based on those numbers, ditto on your thoughts. Will be a near, to possibly, a sell out. My guess is at least 480K will sell by cut-off.

                              PA Lottery seems a bit slow on releasing the numbers.
