A new beginning coming

June 21, 2008

With the Raffle drawing around the corner on Monday a thought came to mind. If bought far apart, could one person possibly win 2 of the million dollar prizes? The odds for it happening are so far and out there it’s about as likely as winning the actual mega millions. However, I bought my tickets so far apart that it seems that I may have a chance. A very very slim chance, but a chance nonetheless. Will I win? Odds are against me, I’ve bought tickets far apart before and won absolutely NOTHING. I’ve also had people email me as well as comment on this blog saying they played the actual odds of winning and STILL won nothing. That right there just kinda cheese me off, since the odds aren’t there and are of course wrong. But its the closest way to determined what actually can be won. I’m hoping for at least 100 bucks after laying down 38 bucks for the tickets. If I win anything more then that, I’ll be on cloud 9.

Good Feelings for Michigan Millionaire Raffle!

November 17, 2007

I have some good feelings bout the Michigan Millionaire Raffle coming up starting November 19th and the drawing on January 2nd.

This is quoted off of http://www.michigan.gov/lottery:

The Lottery’s Millionaire Raffle is back!  A limited number of tickets, only 600,000, will be sold at all Lottery terminals across Michigan beginning November 19, 2007.  Each ticket sold will contain a unique six-digit number from 000001 to 600000.  In a single drawing scheduled for January 2, 2008, 2018 raffle tickets will be randomly selected to win the following great prizes:

Prize Odds of Winning
6 grand prizes of $1,000,000 each (annuitized over 20 years*) 1:100,000
12 prizes of $100,000 each 1:50,000
2000 prizes of $500 each 1:300

Overall: 1:297

The Millionaire Raffle offers players the best chance ever to win $1,000,000.  Odds are just 1 in 100,000 that a player will become one of six new millionaires in the most $1,000,000 prizes ever awarded in a Michigan Lottery game!

  • Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased 7 days a week at any online or Club Keno retailer
  • Tickets will be printed in numerical order when issued
  • No additional tickets will be available for purchase when all 600,000 tickets are sold
  • Tickets will be easy picks only; players cannot pick their own numbers
  • Tickets cannot be cancelled and multi-draw wagers are not available
  • Player must match their numbers in exact order to those drawn by the Lottery
  • There will be only one drawing on January 2, 2008
  • Players must have their original Millionaire Raffle ticket to claim their prize
  • Prizes must be claimed within one year of draw date
  • Winning numbers will be posted on Lottery’s Web site at www.michigan.gov/lottery and all Michigan Lottery offices
  • $500 prizes may be claimed at any Michigan Lottery office or licensed claim center
  • $1,000,000 million and $100,000 prize winners must call the Lottery’s Public Relations Division at (517) 373-1237 to schedule an appointment to claim their prize

So there we have it. Great odds to win for 20 bucks! Missing something? You bet. The past few raffles had the favorable drawing within 10 days of ticket sales while this one doesn’t. Whats up with that? Well from what I can think of off the top of my head, there are 2 reasons.

Reason Number 1:

The last raffle took a while to sell out, in fact it sold out 10 days before the draw date automatically giving the lottery commission the right to stick to it’s original date since it’s 10 days just like the ticket said. Slow sales? I’d call it that, but only compared to the past few raffles. Failure? Not a chance! To be a failure, the raffle would still have tickets left to sell PAST their drawing date. I hear that a lot with people saying the last drawing was a failure because it took a while which kinda makes me think those complaining are the impatient one’s expecting a sell out the day     THEY buy their ticket and the drawing will be tomorrow. But a lot of people been patient.

Reason Number 2

The obvious Christmas gift that they’ve been touting to buy people for Christmas. If the drawing is held up to 10 days after sell out and it sells out before December 15th *and it will* then it’s not so much a Christmas gift anymore if the drawing is before Christmas. Wouldn’t that just suck tossing over your only Christmas gift to someone letting them know they didn’t win? What I believe the commission should of done was have the drawing on Christmas Day. The smaller prizes during the day to let the cheer ring in while have the bigger prizes later to give people hope throughout the day when they check that they didn’t win the small prizes. I believe that’s what they SHOULD of done.

I’ll be getting a ticket myself, just one will do it! Best of luck to everybody and get them early!


Anticipation Rises along with lottery site refinished!

May 5, 2007

It’s only Saturday and it feels like it’s Christmas Eve. Whys that? The Super Raffle, that’s why. I’m all caught up in the craze! It hit me even harder today when I went in to buy my Mega Millions ticket while I stopped to get some o so expensive gas. There it was, the sign boasting the 2 million dollar prize! In all it’s glory to the point where I just had to ask the cashier when it starts and then shoot the shit a little with him about how I plan on winning it. Of course I know when it starts, but I’m like a little kid right now talking about his favorite toy over and over and over. Even though nobody really cares what I’m talking about or the fact everybody has heard it 2 million times….ok small bad pun I threw in there. The point is, I’m highly anticipating the release of the Super Raffle and have very high hopes of at least winning $500. If I win that, then i’ll make more then enough to pay for all of this years losses along with mega million tickets for the rest of the year!! At best, I’ll have enough for a couple other millionaire or super raffles to boot along with a ton of scratch and wins as they come out. Will I use the 500 for my lottery fund? As in, keep an up to date record of what I spent and I can only spend it with the 500 bucks? Maybe I will.

On another note when I was checking out michigan.gov.lottery I noticed they did a new redesign of the site!! It’s great! Well compared to the last basic looking one where you had to click the individual games to find the numbers. This new interface shows all the latest numbers for all the games and has a nice header that overall gives the feeling your in a casino style environment. The glitz and glamor are there for the viewing to greet the viewer with a nice feeling. Needless to say, they posted the wrong numbers!! They posted the numbers that they drew, not the numbers that I have. Bah, O well, I guess complaining won’t really help.

Broke but not battered

April 24, 2007

It’s been a crazy past few days. No, I didn’t go crazy suicidal when I found out I spent $140 bucks on 7 Millionaire Raffle tickets and didn’t win a single dime. But I was 11 numbers off from winning $1000. If only I walked in 3 seconds later and bought the tickets. Would of. Should of. Could of. Makes no difference. It was all one big risk and I took it. I grabbed my balls firmly along with about 7 twenty dollar bills and took a chance. It busted me, no doubt but I don’t feel one ounce of regret. I actually felt more excited when I lost then I’ve ever been! I just kept telling myself…wow, I almost won a grand. A month of dreaming and planning how to spend it, along with the odds being better…it was just exciting.

So the Michigan Millionaire Raffle has come and gone and I would like to congratulate Michigans 6 new millionaires…before the state rapes them with taxes. But for 20 bucks, getting 40 bucks would be all I could hope for in return. double your money back, right? What do I do now? Do what I always do!! Play the Mega Millions and keep on dreaming that I’ll hit it big one day! Right now there’s currently a ticket that could be a winner. Where is it? It’s somewhere on my desk hopefully. If not, I’m ready to rock out and buy the next one for Friday. I hit a winner last week for 2 bucks and I’m ready to hit a $10 winner!

The curse is lifted!! Millionaire Raffle Tomorrow!

April 19, 2007

That’s right! Tuesdays lottery proved to be fruitful and positive for me for once in my life! Ok, calmed down and all cool now. I happened to match the MEGA ball and scored two bucks. Equaling out the dollar spent, I earned a dollar. I got that going for me right now, sweetness. Of course all the gas spent to get all the tickets I need pretty much squashes any TRUE earnings. But I’m in good spirits because of it!

The Michigan Millionaire Raffle is tomorrow night!! I’ll be online ready to tell the top numbers to show off all the goodness that I may win and or the pissed offness of what I lose. I spent $140 on the millionaire tickets so I’m hoping to get some kind of return on the whole thing. Even if it’s just a grand. If I lose, there goes a portion of my tax refund. It’s about time I go balls out and try something new with that raffle. God bless tax returns and everything stupid people buy with them. Does anybody ever really invest their tax return for a net gain profit? I’m not talking, investing in entertainment or fun or even collectibles to sell at a later date. I’m talking about a bank account,  a CD or maybe playing the stocks! Does anybody ever do that? I’ve yet to meet someone that has done that with their money. The closest I know of is myself and a few others who spend money on forms of gambling, me being the lottery. I have a good feeling about this one though!

Here’s the winners:

Hello Future Millionaires

April 16, 2007

The Michigan Millionaire Raffle is just days away this week!!

There’s only a few days left to wait. Obviously all tickets were sold a long long time ago, 6 days after it started. So that means the only thing we have left to do is wait around to win our profits, correct? Correct! Over  900 people will come out thousanaires at least this Friday and I plan on being one of the millionaires…or HundredThousandaires. I already have a nice little to-buy list of what I’m going to do with the money if I win the millions.

1.) Buy House

2.) Buy Big Screen TV

3.) Buy Girlfriend car

4.) Buy Adobe Master Collection

5.) Pay off car

6.) Invest 80% of whatever is left over

The main thing missing here of course is a new car for me. Why not a new car for myself? Well a million dollars isn’t going to last me forever right? My car won’t either, however I don’t need a new car right away. My car currently runs fine and I’ll probably keep it around until it hits the bricks. Even then I’ll hold onto it for a while and try to play Mr. Fix it. Why? I feel a certain love to that car of course! Sure it’s a 03 saturn ion with manual trans, and no power windows with 71k miles on it, but I think i’ll have to be THAT cheap to save some moneyage. If all else fails, i’ll break down and buy me an Impala to tide me over.

What will happen if I do win it and all my friends pick up that I did? Easy, won’t give them a dime. I’m sure they’ll come out of the woodworks to ask for a couple bucks here and there or ask to go to dinner only to expect me to pay. Not happening. If I don’t hang out with them right now, then I don’t plan on hanging out with them after I win the money. Rude? No. Why should I hang out with somebody who doesn’t want to hang out now, then all of a sudden i’m their best friend when I get money. Not happening! They can all just stop in their tracks and forget about contacting me at all. I’ve gone through life without them talking to me, and I’m sure with all this money I can keep going through life without them. That doesn’t include people I talk to on a regular basis online though. I just wont’ give them money!

 It’s been a long 2 weeks since I been applying for jobs here, there and everywhere to make that dolla! I’ll make it soon enough though. But in that absence I havent been keeping up to date with you people! I’ve gotten 1 scratch and win in that time! Go me! I haven’t been abusing the money. I don’t have the numbers but i’ll be right on top of it tomorrow night when they draw the lucky mega million numbers. Once again I apologize to everybody who uses this blog as a source of their lotto numbers.


Millionaire Raffle has ended!!

March 19, 2007

Ok, I’m a few days short of telling everybody about it in this blog but at least I’m saying something. I had a feeling this time around the tickets wouldn’t last for a week and I was right!! The tickets were sold out sometime early Saturday, all 600,000 of them!! What a great sale time!! They could of went straight out a go the full 1 million raffle tickets and just double what the last raffle would give out making it 10 million dollar winners which would make it great for everybody!! The public wins, the state wins and anybody else that profits from the sales of the tickets win. So why not make it the Millionaire raffle with…a million tickets?

Haven’t gotten my mega millions ticket just quite yet. Waiting for tomorrow to pick them up while i’m out and need gas. So that’ll have to be put on hold.

March 20th, 2007 Estimated Jackpot $37 Million

Total Spent to date on Michigan Mega Millions: $20
Total Won to date on Michigan Mega Millions: $0
Total Profit to date on Michigan Mega Millions: $-20

Total Spent on Scratch and Wins: $35
Total Won on Scratch and Wins: $9
Total Profit on Scratch and Wins: $-26


Michigan Millionaire Raffle goes on sale tomorrow, March 12, 2007

March 11, 2007

Almost there. ALMOST THERE! We are almost to one of the best odds in town to win a million dollars! What’s the best odds of winning in this big millionaire raffle? Better yet, how much will you have to pay for a ticket to be a part of these great odds. Well here they are done with a little of my own math since the official odds aren’t posted just quite yet. So I’ll be taking the number of possible tickets, 600,000 and dividing the odds

6 winners will win $1,000,000  Odds: 1 in 100,000

12 winners will win $100,000 Odds: 1 in 50,000

900 winners will win $1,000  Odds: 1 in 667

So the plan is that I will buy anywhere between 5-10 tickets. I’m geared towards 7 tickets. The cost? $20 each. Wowza you must be thinking right now! That’s right, I went old school for a bit and said Wowza. So I’m about to dish out a quarterish of my tax return on about 100-200 worth of lottery tickets. Wise move? By  no means. Best odds around. If I were to get say,7 tickets, my odds of winning at least $1000 would be 1:96 This time if I don’t win anything from this raffle and Michigan has another one, then I’ll only go half on 1 ticket with somebody. Until then my hopes are still very high! Is it finally my time to win something big from the Michigan lottery commission? I sure hope so, if not, I’ve definitely been pumping money into the Michigan economy. It may not have treated me that great, but I love this state and I plan on staying as long as I can.

March 13th, 2007 Estimated Jackpot $19 Million

Total Spent to date on Michigan Mega Millions: $18
Total Won to date on Michigan Mega Millions: $0
Total Profit to date on Michigan Mega Millions: $-18

Total Spent on Scratch and Wins: $20
Total Won on Scratch and Wins: $7
Total Profit on Scratch and Wins: $-13
