It's really kind of foolish to play gambling games which have odds that are so high or bad, unless you do have a way of winning enough money on them, now the pick 3 might not pay as much, but $80 in your hand (after you win) are very much better than a $ 1, 000, 000. in the sky (that you probably will never win). People let greed control their better economic sense.

There is a saying, "A fool and his money will soon part", let us not gamble, unless you can afford to lose that money, or unless you know how to win at least as much as you spend, but is your money and by all means do what you want to do with it (which you will do any-way) and don't let anybody tell you otherwise (a fool and his money will soon part).

Good luck.

    “There is nothing more important to this entire business than the integrity of the game,” Commissioner Rolando Olvera said.

    Ha, and Amen!

      Lantern: "unless you can afford to lose that money" = I Agree!

      Ever hear this one? I find it amusing: "Chances are if your parents never had children, you won't either"

        I'm trying also to keep track of balls v computers.

        No need, it's all on the State Lottery Report Card.

         

        Check the State Lottery Report Card
