Technically 2,000.

So far 48 sold, the previous raffle sold 1,139.

We don't expect to hit that number so it's cheaper and the odds are better.
They also didn't expect so the odds were great there too

Could be, but they sold tickets for over 2 weeks and were first.

This one is 2nd and due to the dynamics of the cruise, for less than a week.

@EJB @ChaimMoskowitz @yesitsme @LoLo ,

I see there is a large group of people who are interested in the raffle, but are concerned about the odds based on the previous time.

If we would lower the Maximum amount of tickets to be sold to 800, is there a commitment to buy?

I would just do what you feel is right. Don't try and tailor it for the few of us.
If you can just post the numbers right before the raffle is going to close. Depending on those numbers more might buy tickets including me.

Is there a way to do it, that if x $ amount is sold it will automatically trigger a 2nd place cash prize, which can expand to a whole other spot?
That will raise people's odds.

Second spot in a Triple won't help a couple, they can't book that without paying the single supplement. At that price they could just get a Superior.

I didn't mean that. I meant, that their should be a 2nd place cash prize for a "different" winner, with the ability to raise the prize up to another triple birth or even a whole superior package if money pours in.

Of course once all the people buying  at the last minute for the high odds buy tickets the odds will go down a lot...

Risk I am willing to take just like the first raffle.
