You should know that if your link was deleted (this happened in at least 2 other forums), you shouldn't try any "mind games" to get around it. You risk the wrath of (our good buddy) Todd and having yourself kicked off of here for good. The only links you need to be posting on the site are ones that jump around Lottery Post, not off of it.

Pick 3 doesn't seem that hard to understand... I knew what a 2-way bet was when I was 7 years old (only because my mom won big one day and she said it was straight & 2-way that she hit on).

    Pick 3 really can't be that hard for most people to figure out can it? lol.

    Good grief ! What would the Oklahomans do if they had to play Powerball?

      Raven,

      NoCompLotto! is exactly right, and I suspend accounts when people repeatedly try to get around the word censor.

      Besides, why anyone would direct someone to a web site that does not present the results as quickly as Lottery Post does is beyond me.  There are something like 6 or 7 different results views available here on Lottery Post, and if you're not using them there is really nothing more I can do for you.  But just because you don't want to use them, don't post your links here.  We don't do free advertising for other web sites.

            Need to spread the word about Lottery Post to the Oklahomans. Well teach em how to play. Win or loose.
            You only need to match 3 numbers from 0 thru 9. Seems like it should not be that hard >LOL<</span>

            No NoIt's 000-999

              I've always found it odd that the people in charge of the various state lotteries seem to have the least amount of experience with the games. This group includes the legislators who draft the gaming laws as well as most senior lottery personnel, such as commissioners and even lottery directors. LosingJeff and I have spoken to three Indiana lawmakers, and we've written to several others, none of whom have ever played a single lottery game, save for the occasional scratch-off ticket. Our former lottery director, John Ross, didn't even believe in gambling, so he had never played, either.

              The problem, as I see it, is that no minimum qualifications exist for these posts. To be elected as a legislator, you need only enough money to run an effective campaign. Being appointed to a cushy commissioner's job, on the other hand, is often just a matter of acquaintance.

              They all keep busy exempting themselves from the laws they write to govern us, but they won't take the time needed to educate themselves on matters which affect the general constituency. The lottery is a players' game and, as such, must conform to certain preconceived or historical models. Changing the fundamentals to make the structure conform more closely to a corporate business model is contrary to the spirit of the games. Consequently, the act of trying to squeeze an extra dollar from the lottery for state coffers will result in the erosion of player confidence and an inevitable loss in sales.

              Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...

                  Thank you for your understanding.

                  I've been reading various Forums, learning from what I've read and exploring Lottery Post as time permits.

                  I've viewed many of the features of Lottery Post, returning to the Results Section is on my list of Things-To-Do, which is an amazing collection of Lottery Tools.
