· The Wheel is spun and winners are announced similar to being at a LIVE meat raffle
· WIN MEAT!
· If you win, you’ll pick it up from FEDERAL MEATS on Kensington Ave., instead of hauling it home in a cooler that night.
Frequently Asked Questions
· How does pricing for a virtual meat raffle compare to an in-person meat raffle?
Admission to an in-person meat raffle typically ranges from $5 – $10. However, in order to participate in each round, you would then spend an additional $1 – $3 per spin (3 spins per round). Don’t forget the bonus rounds which would typically cost between $3 – $5 each! This already puts your total over our $30 price point for the virtual event!
· Do I get a ticket number?
No – we will be using the Wheel of Names. All names will be entered onto the Wheel by number of entries purchased. If you purchase 1 entry, your name is entered 1 time. If you purchased 5 entries, your name will be entered 5 times. The more entries you purchase – the better your odds are of winning! The wheel will be shuffled periodically throughout the event.
· Can I purchase entries for the meat raffle rounds during the live event?
No, unfortunately all entries for the rounds must be purchased ahead of time.
· Do I need a Facebook to participate in this event?
No! You do not need to have Facebook in order to watch this event. Anyone with or without a Facebook account can watch a Facebook live video. In addition, the video will also be posted on our website on a later date and can be accessed by anyone.

Just like a regular meat raffle! We have an Emcee – Buffalo’s own DJ Anthony that will be emceeing the event and announcing the rounds and the winners that evening.
