Guys, you'll not do any good at all writing to the Lottery Commission.

 NOTHING scares a politician more, than letters from upset voters.  So, scare the crap out of a politician! :)

 Sen. Jason Mumpower is one of the "wheels" on the over-sight committee.  Vent your frustrations to him.

mumpower@legislature.state.tn.us

Use words like "loss of revenue", "Coverup" "fraud", etc.

Go for it.

      some of it is in webdings and some in wingdings.

      to translate; copy and paste into a reply. then high lite the paste and use font family arial black or georgia or whatever other ones to translate.

      If one font works for some of dings hi lite what dings it did not work on and try another font.

      I also have document wordpad on my computer and I can copy and paste into my wordpad and the translation is automatic without going thru font family.

      I have 4 different types of dings in my document wordpad.

          Why not just ignore it altogether?

              I like how in PA for instance they have the b they have the nerve to show animated "ball machines" with animated numbers rolling out, on the website animation file that you download. I think they might be better off with computerized in TN because you just have to look for those weird patterns and you can use the same algorithm on the jackpot games as the digit games! Also the broadcasting costs could be cut but doing like the nj midday where you just see the machines with a disembodied voice. The modern-day lottery host/hostess merely waves or points at the machine.

                Tennessee Players, the bottom line is that if they crap on you and you continue to play (Sales are UP!) then it stands to reason that they will continue to crap on you. Wake UP!

                  Don't believe the BS the lottery put out there about sales being up.  Read all the posts earlier in this thread.

                  On second thought, I think the comments are in a different thread.  (Also in the news section.)

                    Todd you are right.  The sales aren't UP.. I work in a store.. and people are not playing like they did.

                    After talking with me,  most just don't buy any.  They buy scratch offs and PB.  I let them know that it is computerized and their best chance is to buy one qp per game if they just want to play.  Trying to figure out what is going to show is impossible.

                     

                    I have customers at our business who work at other retailers.  They too have said that sales were down with pick 3 and pick 4.  Most are continuing to play the pick 5.  People see the figures of the pay out for pick 5 and still buy qp for those games.   Good luck to them.
