I’ve been telling you all along that Sweepstakes games, whether second chance or first draw, carry some of the best odds in the lottery business.

Pay particular attention to second chance drawings where lotteries require that you send in your non-winning tickets. And think about how many people will do that.

It’s a different story with the Millionaire raffles that many states seem to have adapted. But still, with a limited number of tickets sold (usually, they are $20 tickets), you have decent odds to win a million dollars. By decent, I mean 1 in 125,000, typically. Not great. But better than 1 in a million or more…

In Florida over the weekend there were four winners and three have already come forward.

The winners were James Kenneth Bush, 50, of South Daytona, Kristen Gallant, 35, of Greenacres, and Stephen Quinley, 35, of Jacksonville.

Check out a pix, above of two of the happy winners.
