I was thinking today it would be good to run a raffle for a single prize where the price of the entry is 10 or 20% of the retail price of the prize so.. lets say

Prize = Forza Motorsport 3 Super Elite Console which retails at £249.99

so tickets for the raffle are 10% @ £24.99

we sell 11 tickets only (10 to pay for the console, 1 for paypal fees and postage) so then each person has a one in 11 chance of winning the 249.99 console for 24.99

pretty good odds, pretty good price..

it's certainly something I would be interested in.. but what about everyone else?

Yeah if it was smaller prizes, or even bigger odds, e.g. the number of tickets vary each time but the ticket value always stays the same - let's say £5 - you might get more interest

. At the beginning of a week it could be offered up like "if we get so many tickets sold the prize will be:...... and if we get so many more the prize will be:........ if we dont get enough for any then it will roll over to next week"

So in this instance for the console you would have to sell 55, which is a stretch maybe, but if only 10 people bought tickets that week then you could still have a prize worth £30-£40 and that would seem more reasonable, with the option always available to run one for 2 or even 3 weeks for special raffles where the prize is intended from the outset to be bigger like for the console.

:D
