Hi, Mark. Great topic! In other states where lottery raffle games have been sold, the bulk of tickets have been sold in the final couple weeks of sales. In fact, sales have really spiked in the final days of the games. Afterall, we humans tend to procrastinate on things and often hold off on doing something until there's a sense of urgency! We anticipate a similar pattern here in Iowa.

Thanks for your comment!


Hello Mary,

Sorry to see that the promotion is not going very well- halfway through the sales period and less than 18,000 of the proposed 120,000 tickets have been sold. How would the prizes break down if only 45,000 tickets were sold?

Thanks, Mark Chandler, Lotologist
