    they (S.C.) need a page like this...

    PA's instant  prizes remaining tracker...

    http://www.palottery.state.pa.us/lottery/PALotto/instPrizes.asp

    oh, wait... they DO...

    http://www.sceducationlottery.com/games_statsreport.asp

    don't all libraries have free internet access?

    frivelous lawsuits. Roll Eyes

    maybe they want to play musical chairs only they don't take a chair away when the music stops... so nobody feels left out...

    Because PA has computer tracking, doesn't make a SC lawsuit frivelous.  There are thousands, hundreds of thousands of scratch off players that don't have access to libraries, or even know where one is.  If they did, an equal number wouldn't know how to use a computer, or are afraid of being tracked by the government.  A lot are "illegals" and are afraid or don't speak the language. The target group for the lottery directors.  Just because people on this group know everything there is to know about computers, doesn't mean every one else does. Remember who this gambling effort is orientated towards, the poor and the uneducated.  They are being ripped off by their government because of who they are and what they are.  In many cases. they're only option is a lawsuit.

    Cheers

        Most industries capitalize on the ignorance of the masses.  The lottery commission is no different.

          Agree, thus, when they get caught, they should be subject to the same penalties. When Enron executives do something wrong and people loose money, the Government goes after Enron executives with the full force that every tax penny can afford.  In this case, those loosing money only have one recourse; lawsuit.  It's time the people remember who the forefathers died for; the people - NOT the government.  The government has spent centuries making themselve into power and money hungry entities.  They should be brought back to their proper place - lawsuits are good tools to start bringing them back to reality.

          Cheers

            The fact remains that the people of SC can find the information if they persue it.If they don't,it's not the states fault.I don't see their misfortune if they're just lazy.If they care so much,do your homework instead of demanding that the state do all your thinking for ya.Get over yourselves.

              The NY Lottery misleads the public in radio commercials "you can win a million dollars". Not until after you buy the ticket, you read the fine print on the back.
