I am determined to win one of these days....
How do these "processing" fees work?
$7.90 for 2x $50 ($100) tickets seems acceptable.
$15.80 (double) for 2x $75 ($150) tickets seems ridiculous though.
Quoted from Londonpinball:
How many tickets do they sell a year.
200 per game, 10 games, just a guess, don’t jump all over me
16k a year for processing. Cough
I might wait for this issue to be solved before I purchase another ticket.
Ticket master is handling the transactions
Seriously though. If these fees were going to charity I wouldn't care so much but I seriously doubt it. At least lay out how the fees are tallied. It's pretty random.
Attention Project Pinball
Are you aware that current raffles are no longer displayed on your homepage? I know about them though pinside but my friends were completely unaware of the Premium raffle and wondered what happened to the Pro raffle. The links on your homepage are gone. You should get them back on the front page to draw attention. Good luck. Take care. Keep up the good work.
Quoted from Mole:
We have Pinball Raffles listed under Pinball Raffle Tab on our Home Page. Are you saying that those links were not working? Can you clarify for me? I just completed testing those links and they were working fine for me.
When I click on raffles, it only shows previous winners. I'm not techy enough to tell you any more. It used to be there until monstwr bash 2 ended.
Glad to see tickets selling. Good stuff.
Quoted from Project_Pinball:

....just got laid off today. I've got 2 tix for each of the 3 raffles. Every finger is now crossed.
My fees for all the ticket I've purchased have been as follows
2x $50 = $7.90
2x $50 = $7.90
2x $75 = $15.80
4x $50 = $15.80
Shouldnt it be a set transaction fee no matter what the amount?
I didnt buy any raffle tickets. The charity I choose to donate to happens to hold raffles. 1 raffle ticket for every $50 donated. The charity does pinball related work with children so the raffles are often for pinball machines.
Creative phrasing = tax loopholes
Quoted from setzkor:
That's between you and your auditor as raffle tickets are specifically mentioned as not allowed in the instructions for schedule A. You can however deduct them as gambling losses assuming you are also claiming winnings. So when you win, you can then deduct the cost of other non-winning tickets purchased.
Ahh, check that, I see you are from Canada...have no idea what your tax rules are.
I get something like 15% back so I'm covering the transaction fees lol
Premium is sold out
Pro has 19 tickets left
Glad to see people are still going forward. Fees problems are being addressed. Let's focus on the positive.
Quoted from Daditude:
Do they do the drawings one at a time or do they wait for both to fill before drawing?
The drawing tonight is for the 2018 pro raffle.
Not sure if they will draw the 2019 pro and premium together. (11 tickets left for the pro raffle)
If someone could post the link to where I can watch the live drawing at 8pm that would be great thanks.
All tickets have been sold for both raffles. Awesome. Great work and good luck everyone
Is there a Wonka raffle in the works?
I always get 2 tickets for the Stern Pro raffles but I'd go in on a Wonka raffle as well.
Quoted from gac:
Just a saying... meaning don't jinx yourself. Don't pick your prize before you've won it. Anyway, Good Luck!!
I've bought enough tickets to these draws where my luck must already be pretty crappy lol. Good luck to you as well as it's all charity money. Winning a pinball machine would be nice to though
Quoted from meSz:
25 years since Canada has been in the Finals.....wait you're not talking hockey???
I am never talking hockey.
On that note....how many Canadian players were on the winning teams? Its bred into us. At age 3 we send our children into the wilderness with nothing but the clothes on their backs, some snow shoes, a canteen of maple syrup and a hockey stick. If they survive the winter they are real Canadians and we send them off to the Americas where money is thrown at them from age 18 to 35. Then they retire back to Canada
I've never won anything but I buy 2 tickets for every pro raffle (this is the first one I missed out on in a while)
When I can swing it, I also grab 1 ticket for premium draws.
Quoted from Project_Pinball:

Idk if you are worried about seeming like it is spamming or something but you should always throw up a post in the thread of whatever machine you are currently raffling off for charity. I've posted links to project pinball in both the Elvira and Jurassic Park threads
Omg if I've ever needed a win, it's now lol. Currently riding a shit wave of bad luck. It can only mean I'm the next Project Pinball winner right?
Quoted from Amarillopinball:
Just 9 left now. But I kinda want the premium drawing to be later so I still have something to look forward to.
There's is still the pro raffle if you are looking for prolonged excitement
I have a ticket in the premium and the Elvira. I'd like to have 2 drawings tomorrow. It'll make me feel like I have a better chance lol.
My son would loose his mind if we got a JP. He is 6 and LOVES when the trex eats the ball in the data east JP (which he surprisingly achieved in his first game). He hasn't even seen the stern JP yet.
7 tickets left in the premium draw. Remember that it is for ANY currently available Stern premium.
Quoted from Project_Pinball:
Due to unforeseen circumstances the Jurassic Park Premium Pinball Machine Raffle is postponed until tomorrow night at 8 PM EST! Thank you all so much for supporting and for your patience! Tomorrow night one lucky winner will be walking away an owner of a brand-new Stern Premium pinball machine!
As long as its because you needed to double check the spelling of my name
