Kansas Lottery is first in the world to offer electronic PushPlay

Kansas LotteryKansas Lottery: Kansas Lottery is first in the world to offer electronic PushPlay

Rating:

The Kansas Lottery is the first lottery in the world to offer its players a next generation lottery product called PushPlay. The Lottery is shipping out PushPlay game cards this week to all retailers that have requested them.

PushPlay game cards are instant lottery tickets, but instead of scratching off the tickets, a player uses a reusable electronic player with an LCD screen to display the game. A player will insert or "push" the card into the player, and then "play" the game, thus the name PushPlay.

During the play of a PushPlay game card, players accumulate "points" that are displayed on the LCD screen after each play. The total points will determine the prize won. As is the case with any instant ticket, the game can also be validated and cashed without being played. Players can win up to $1,000 on each game card. As with any instant game, all prizes are pre-determined.

A PushPlay combination pack sells for $20 and contains the reusable electronic player and four game cards, two each of Yahtzee and Lucky 7s. Players who wish to play additional game cards can purchase them separately for $5 each.

PushPlay game cards were developed by Scientific Games International. The initial release includes 120,000 combination packs and 480,000 $5 Yahtzee and Lucky 7s replacement tickets.

Lottery corps are catching up with the world of technology. I like that. This looks like a game for the new generation. I prefer the old scratching.

    ...Technology isn't always the best.

    I prefer the manual ball drawing, scratch tickets, etc etc.

      I Agree! Imo, computers (RNG) have messed up some good games.

        ...another fine example about how to scam the public and waste their time. I'd sure like to work for a government lottery commission, I've got a million ways to do it!

          "Players who wish to play additional game cards can purchase them separately for $5 each. ..."

          That is the goal to sell as many $5.00 tickets as possible.

          If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

          You never know when you will get another hit.

            Well......

            lottery commissions ARE in business to sell tickets and make money. Every business is in business to make a profit, otherwise, why bother being in business? And they are simply trying to make new and more exciting games to maintain interest and sales.

              ...buckeye, you really don't get it at all.[read government=lottery commissions or any other state name you want to give it]

              No government, unless its a communist one [and they certainly haven't done the world anygood], is 'in the business' to make money off its citizens. Its sole purpose is to govern the country and its daily state of affairs.Yes they are selling lottery tickets too-through their own backwards legislative greed syndrome in a way, but you don't have to buy them! I don't buy them and my lottery playing friends don't pour their hard earned dollars into these never ending money pit scratch-offs and the like contrivances either. We know better. Regular daily taxation on everything we do is enough for any government bureaucracy to gab all our money.

              This is the reason folks, like the good one's here on the great LP, are trying to rub salt in the governments eyes by designing their own truly winning lottery systems to WIN and beat their favourite lottery games all the time they play it, at least that's my idea of why we're here, [of course some are here and play for fun!!! please!!!] and if I ever came up with a winning lottery system for any lottery ran by our respective governments of Canada and the USA, I'd tell everyone how to do it, for free!

              Now the Casinos/racetracks, that's another issue altogether...OH BTW>>>in Canada they are 'government owned and ran' too, just like their lotteries; not at all like the good old USA. Patriot

                Dude......

                Relax, have a beer, take a chill pill.

                Ok, better now?

                Ok. I imagine there might be someone on LP that is "trying to rub salt in the government's eyes", but I think the vast majority of lottery players are just trying to win some $. Correct, we don't have to buy scratchers, or any other lottery ticket. Yes, it is a form of taxation that whoever buys a lottery ticket of ANY kind, is voluntarily paying a tax. Here in the US, at least in Tx, the money goes toward schools, education.

                The fact of the matter is, lotteries are in business to make money. They are not in business to lose money. That is why the odds are what they are, and the "house" will always have the advantage. Anyone who takes a few minutes and studies any lottery game and decides to buy a ticket understands that. They (and me) are buying a dream. My dream is simply to retire. And yes, I too have different ideas and systems that I play to try to improve my chances of winning. But, frankly, it really comes down to mostly luck.
