    Someone else can probably explain better than me, but essentially it's a group that conducts beer lotteries/raffles. Someone puts a bottle (or bottles) up and other people buy into the lottery/raffle. They are technically illegal since for-profit private raffles are, to my knowledge, illegal in all states.

    based on the lottery numbers. You buy a spot with the chance that the Lottoball number is yours. Boom, bottle is yours.

    They call it a razzle so that Facebook and other sites won't pick up on the word "raffle" and shut them down I think.

    According to Webster's dictionary, it is a loosely tied together hierarchy of Socialists, cunnies and assholes that raffle beer for a living instead of finding any way at all to make a positive contribution to society as a whole.

    So basically selling beer through raffles but the winner feels like he got a deal? Assholes.

    Wanted to post a picture of a Razzle Stack but would probably get banned.

    Not sure there's anything more entertaining than people who don't understand things like independence of events and the Law of Large Numbers but are so sure their completely-incorrect "understanding" of mathematics is right. I think I've seen literally every possible version of the Gambler's Fallacy occur. I'd be interested to observe how some of those people bet at a roulette wheel.
