I guess I'm in the same boat as you.

I also didn't buy a ticket.

By they way guys, your odds of winning one of our raffles is pretty danged high, and it's always for a great cause! You can't always say that with our state lotteries, where does that money go? They say to the schools, but really? At least here you know where your money goes, straight to the project the raffle represents, just sayin. I do hope you consider our raffles in the future, you're not lining our pockets with your contributions, you are helping a worthy cause.

But, raffles are a game of chance, I completely respect the morality conflicts folks may have as well, thank you guys for being here, by the way, if I ever win mega millions, I'll share!:)

The reality of the lotteries is: If you don't buy a ticket, you have no chance to win, If you do buy a ticket you have virtually no chance to win.

Well, thanks (I guess) but I wasn't worried about the title....I wasn't too worried about winning the lottery either.

For me it's not a moral issue, it's more or less what Dave said about self-administered taxes..after all the only consistent winner here is the government (enough said). I'll enter lotteries that are for prizes and are privately sponsored. But your statement did remind me of my late M-I-L, who was an self described anti-gambler (among other things).  But when the Ohio Lottery was introduced, she bought tickets every week and would run to the TV to check her numbers against the winners.
