Hashtag: #FirstWorldNonNativeEnglishSpeakerIssues. I was desperately searching that word when starting this thread. Words Lottery and Sweepstakes didn't sound OK in my ears, talking about a Draw still feels wrong but as it is best of those alternatives I could think of I've used it.
RAFFLE! Now I remember it, adding it to a mental note of "English words I might need some day".
Like you(most likely), I thought of the German word "Tombola" after being here 27 years
We moved back here in Germany from Rome, Italy in June 2006 after the second stroke of my mother-in-law, to be closer to her. Both gone now, wife (now ex) back to Italy, mother-in-law to cemetery just cross over the street.
But yes, Tombola from German and Arvonta from Finnish were the first words coming to my mind.
