Correct. The comparitavely low 5-days-in sales of the first raffle might be because at 5 days in there was still tons of time left, whereas in the second raffle, by 5 days the deadline is already nearing; and the comparitavely high 24-hours-left numbers in the first raffle might be because the raffle has been open for so long by that point, whereas in the second raffle it's only been open 5 days at the 24-hour-left point.

It might be more accurate to compare the # of tickets sold at each % of the time that the raffle was selling tickets. (Idk the exact length of each, but if the first raffle was 3 weeks long and the second was 1 week long, one can compare the # of tickets sold at 72 hours left in the 1st raffle with the # at 24 hours left in this one.)

Disclaimer: I have no background in statistics or anything of the like, so feel free to disprove me :)
No statistical basis to your suggestion

I do still have the raffle bucket here.
Should we livestream the loser?

Nah, if it was Marriott then Levi B would be in a shared triple room after category conversion. And breakfast would be excluded due to an asterisk.

But you have to keep picking until you get a DDFer.

Are you killing and stuffing the penguin yourself?
