OT: 50/50 draw

Since I play $5 worth every Sens game I attend, I was wondering if anyone else here buys into the 50/50 draw? Anyone been lucky? I usually look around when the numbers are read to see if I can see someone jumping with joy etc.. but I have never seen a winner.

Is the winning number a ticket that wasn't puchased or does anyone know or seen someone that's won the draw?

A few years ago, at a Sens-Wings game, the winner was in my section, so I've seen it happen.

My boyfriend plays $10 every game - hasn't been lucky yet.

I worked as a 50/50 seller last year. Here's how it works. (This is top-secret information, BTW, so I'll deny ever posting this)

All the tickets that are sold are dumped into a giant plastic bin. One is drawn at random.

That's it. No mystery.

Winners are here:

The woman a couple seats down from me won one time... it was a few years ago, so the amount was a bit lower. Still though, she was sitting there with an envelope with about $6000 in cash in it. It was crazy.

You'd think they'd give it to you in a safer form...

Several of these went "Unclaimed".. one that was 15k.. It's a gamble for some.. wait for the 50/50 draw midway through the third or run to your car to beat the traffic.
