Sportsmen's Bashes/Gun Raffles

A few weeks ago I attended my first gun raffle event. Or tickets had 4 sets of numbers on them, obviously 4 chances to win. The drawing was done using bingo calling numbers (4 tumblers with random numbers). I assumed that ticket stubs would be called. We didn't see many people collecting prizes. The question I have is this the usual process (using 4 random numbers)? It seems to me that a winning chance is astronomical.

The odds depend on the number of tickets sold and the number of drawings of the balls.

Was the raffle licensed?

All raffles favor the house..

These are fundraisers first and foremost. If you win, it's a bonus.
