    Had 42 tickets..  Nada...Thats fine lol I'm shooting for $1,000,000.00!!

    LOL This! I just picked up my raffle tonight at it was at 201197 so I just missed the first drawing but yeah I'm shooting for the Million. Can you win a weekly drawing and a million raffle? I think I'm one and done on the raffle though. I'd hate to buy that many and still come out goose eggs after everything is said and done.

        Picked up my ticket for the second weekly draw (drawing on Dec. 6) at around 1:30 today, number in the 216000 range.  Looks like sales are picking up.

            I had my wife pick up some PA raffle tickets while she was over in PA on business yesterday. 

            They're in he 147,000 range.  Looks like Florida is moving tickets faster/better than PA.  How do ya figure that??  PA's Early Bird top prize is $50,000.  (And there are 3 winners of 50G for EB each drawing)  I would think PA would be moving them at about the same rate as FLA, but apparently not.  G5

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

              This just in from The Pennsylvania Lottery's newsdesk:

              Middletown, PA – The Pennsylvania Lottery today announced the winning numbers for the third of six New Year’s Millionaire Raffle Early Bird Bonus Drawings. Each drawing awards three prizes of $50,000.

                Sorry for posting so much here in The Florida Millionaire Raffle thread about The Pennsylvania New Year's Millionaire Raffle... but I figure you good folks down in FLA and us Northerner's are kindred spirits when it comes to playin' these raffles!  Anyways, it aint like I aint never been to Florida or nuthin.  We were in Hollywood, Fla last 4th of July, and then we whipped across Alligator Alley to Naples and Fort Meyers to see some Long Island transplants that my wife and I know.  We flew outta that nice new airport in Fort Myers on Jet Blue back to White Plains.  Nice trip.  Hot, but nice.

                But here's what's on my mind;  I hope you aint thinkin' you're gonna win BOTH the Early Bird drawing and the top prize too!  I mean all these Early Bird drawings are nice, but I'm kinda hopin' that I DONT win an Early Bird drawing.  That's because if you do win an Early Bird, then you might as well wad that ticket up and fire it in the trash can right now! You aint thinkin' that the lightnin' is gonna strike you twice in one month, are ya??? 

                Don't get me wrong.  I'd take that 10 grand.  But I really want that one mill.  (And come Dec 15th, I'll have my two FLA raffle tickets.  That's IF my brother who lives near Tampa remembers to get them for me.  If he shows up up here without 'em, I aint givin' him his Christmas present.)  G5

                PS I imagine he thinks I'm gonna cut him a vig if I win a cool mill. We'll just see about that.

                        As best as I can tell, sales are still averaging less than 10,000 per day.  Today is the last day of sales before weekly draw #2, so the pool of eligible tickets should be less than 70,000.

                            Apparently if you buy a raffle ticket from the district office, you get a tshirt as well. 

                             

                            I bought a raffle ticket 252196 an hour ago.

                              I hope it's not a case of "I played the Florida Lottery Raffle, and all I got was this stupid T-Shirt!"

                              Good luck in the weekly draw!
