What is a reverse raffle?
In a traditional raffle, the first ticket drawn wins the prize. In a reverse raffle, the LAST ticket drawn wins the prize. 200 tickets are available for this raffle and all tickets are drawn until we get to the last, winning ticket. The M Club president traditionally calls representatives of the last four remaining tickets to the stage, and those four are given the opportunity to split the pot or choose to continue drawing tickets until there is only one grand prize winner. Prizes are also awarded to other tickets drawn throughout the raffle to increase the fun – 1st, 25th, 50th, 50th, 75th, 100th, 125th, 150th & 175th tickets drawn.
What is a sideboard?
Two hundred numbers are available for purchase from the "sideboard" that you can choose (don’t pick your reverse raffle number though). The winner receives half of the pot based on the last number drawn in the Reverse Raffle. Sideboard entry is cash-only, so be sure to come prepared!
