While loop correction needed for Python Project

When running the final code for the ticket price project, I believe there is an oversight. In the example given where craig buys 98 tickets, leaving two remaining which are then purchased by Terry, there should be a prompt if the number entered exceeds the remaining balance. As it stands now, if Terry were to enter 3 tickets instead of two, the output would be SOLD! Sorry the tickets are all sold out!.

My thought is a ValueError should be included if the number of tickets requested exceeds the remaining ticket balance.

You must have missed something, there is a check for that:

         if num_tickets > tickets_remaining:
            raise ValueError...
