Triple Action Lottery plan
What follows is my proposed triple-action california lottery plan, the first

The oldest, and still very popular, form of lottery in America is the raffle, or local drawing. Next to Bingo, raffles are the country’s biggest fund raisers for charity.

Many raffles have automobiles valued at $2,000 to $15,000 as prizes, with the raffle tickets seffing from a low of 10 to a high of $100.
