$30 ticket here in IL. no longer being sold but lots of prizes left
talked to a lottery rep in the store today regarding when the pull a game. she said they pull a game when too many large prizes are claimed early. i said ok i understand that but how come they stop selling games that no large winners have been claimed and she said that was a problem and that's why one of the reasons the lottery contractor was recently fired. she also mentioned that the retailer can choose to order certain games and if they are ordered before the game is no longer be distributed ...

Quick Picks (Florida Lotto)
...according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Publix is the Florida Lottery's largest retailer, according to Bishop. A little less of a surprise.

States pull the plug on Monopoly Millionaires' Club
Private sector want to sell all lottery products over the Internet and retailers, and the government is against it. Private lottery managers are not free to make choices, when they are running these lottery operations, and it is why they are failing to bring the sales that they promised.

States pull the plug on Monopoly Millionaires' Club
Europeans play the Euromillions out of convenience, but it is not a great game to play relative to the playing population. Selling lottery tickets over the Internet has allowed players to take a chance without risking their lives on the way to play the lottery at the retailers.

If you had a consistent winning system..
I was in a small Krogers' the other day and noticed they had paid out $1900 'last week' in lottery winnings. That's going to fluctuate week to week and I don't know if that is a good, bad or average week for that store. The small convenience store not far from here pays out $800 to $1200 a week by what flashes across their screen. (I've seen it as low as $137.) Judging by that, if a small retailer increased their sales by $30 - $50 a week and began to pay out twice what they had been payi ...

NJ lottery winners still receiving welfare, food stamps, audit says
Why are there not systems in place for every state in the US that has a lottery in place? Because the state welfare agencies would expect the lottery to do the policing, they would pass it on to their retailers, and then down to the same clerks who found a way to use EBT cards to purchase tickets. The state probably figured out it costs more to police it than they lose. Are that many people on public assistance winning large lottery prizes?

If you had a consistent winning system..
I've always wondered about this. Lets say you had a pick 3 system that generated 3 to 4 straight hits per week. Would this raise flags with lottery head quarters. I've heard that each retailer is tracked daily for the amount of winning tickets being sold. So if you had such a system do you think it would be wise to jump around to different retailers to buy tickets, and cash in winning tickets, or would it be safe to use the same retailer/store all the time. I can just imagine store cler ...

Why are the Systems failing?
Even in the smaller games pick 3 and 4 if you had a system that could hit consistently for straight hits each retailer is tracked daily for the amount of winning tickets sold so if lottery headquarters notices a store or several stores with an unusual amount of winning tickets being sold there to me this would raise flags. I believe it would be wise to jump around to different retailers if you had such a system that hit often, and just think about the retailers seeing you come in on a regular ...

Post your scratch ticket results
I haven't been playing as much lately. I will probably try the new $20 ticket Black on Tuesday. On a sidenote I am getting very annoyed lately with Pick3/Pick4 players who don't fill out a playslip. The retailers should make that mandatory.
