Raffle contests are a game of chance, with every ticket sold having a chance to be a winner. As you buy more tickets, you have a greater likelihood of winning. If there are a great number of other people buying tickets, your odds do go down, so look for raffles that attract fewer people for a better chance of winning. Some people believe that visualizing yourself winning the raffle increases the odds of actually winning, but there is no proof that this is true. Others suggest that crumpling the ticket somewhat before placing it in the bucket, if possible, makes it stand out when the winning tickets are drawn.

When deciding whether or not to enter a raffle, consider the value of the prizes, the number of prizes and the price per ticket. If the values of the prizes are low or the cost of each ticket is high, it may not be worth entering the raffle.

Many raffles are held to raise money for charities or other good causes, so buy tickets with that in mind. It helps to tell yourself that it does not matter if you win as long as the outcome is good for the charity or cause holding the raffle.
