Maybe I should have titled this article, "TENNESSEE LOTTERY HAS REAL DRAWINGS FOR A DAY".

Anyone notice that all the substituted games are drawn with real mechanical drawing machines?

Now if they do that every day, lots of players would be very happy....

Got that right.

Hell, I'd be happy to get Iowa's numbers third-hand after they got 'em from Illinois rather than from that dang computer.

      How funny would it be if TN cut off sales for their games a couple minutes after the nother states drew their numbers?  People could make a lot of money if they did that.

      I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

        I'm certain (depending on the amount of damage done to the office) if they have to stay closed for an extended period of time they will grant district offices full power to cash big winners.  I'd imagine it would take several weeks to repair damages.

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

            Just so everyone is aware, Tennessee again used other states' winning numbers yesterday (Tues., May 4) -- Kentucky for midday games and Michigan for evening games.  The Pick 5 game is not drawn on Tuesdays, so they didn't have to use NY for that.

              I bet you $1 million that they will end up getting the same numbers tonight too.  :)

                FYI, Tennessee is back drawing their own numbers. I guess they must have a laptop doing it now???

                I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                  I think they smelled a huge payoff coming from Michigan..they are due a double number of some sort. The 174 that fell in Ky mid is a favorite number also..they probably would have gotten bombed for real.

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

                  You never know when you will get another hit.

                    Or maybe their offices aren't on the first floor, and they only closed the offices because roads leading to the area were flooded.
