Florida always seems to be way behind the curve with lottery

Florida was the last state with a state lottery to join Powerball in 2009.

One year later cross-selling between MM and PB began. Florida still hasn't joined cross-selling.

Florida and  Louisianna (joined PB in 1995) are now the only states with PB that haven't joined cross-selling MM.  (and CA is the only state with MM that hasn't added PB).

When MM jackpots get up there and are setting record highs a lot of Florida lottery sales get diverted to Georgia.

And now I read that PB tickets are going to cost $2 beginning in January 2012.

Florida Lottery could start their update  by adding Mega Millions right away.

      Because they're selling less tickets.

          Wow lotterybraker, IDK where to start.


          "do you know why the UNITED STATES will not FORCE THE PUBLIC to switch its automobiles to natural gas..."


          We're a free country, a free market.  The US Federal Government isn't supposed to force us to buy anything, even though they try from time to time (Health Care)


          " NEVER TRUST A POLITICIAN..as soon as he opens his mouth ..99% of what comes out is a lie..the 1% being I am hungry or thirsty..hahahaha"


          Also not true.  I don't even want to start to de-bunk that.  Do politicians, lie, stretch the truth, etc.?  Yes.  But not all of them 99 percent of the time, or anything nearly close to that.


          Oh, most politicians don't use their own money to get elected, although some do.  Jon Corzine's an example, but most don't use their own money, they use campign contributions.  Some are lots of small donations, some are by big companies.  Either way, it's not their own personal money, and if you honestly think most Politicians have enough money to spend 30-60 million out of pocket on campaigns I suggest you stop calling them retards, because you're making yourself look it.

          If I was you I would check the amount spent by each candidate in the last election..AND YES you will see that many of them are RICH and spend MILLIONS of their own money to win...I am not sure where you get your information but I get mine from CNN..and yes they do get contributions from people and companies ..yes that is true...but it is also true they will spend MILLIONS OF THEIR OWN MONEY to practically buY the seat...

          as far as a free economy when it comes to WHAT IS BEST FOR THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE and not the individual..then we should have already switched to natural gas..but that works both ways..federal taxes on gasoline is and would be more than taxes received from natural gas..so we stick with paying for gasoline and its OVER INFLATED COST..


          AND by the way..I am way smarter than you think..and when I say they are a  bunch of retards..not only is it true..its pretty much a fact.. also..check the last poll results that was taken and the question was asked to the public how much confidence do you have in CONGRESS...it is below 50 % !!!!reminds me of one of my MOST FAVORITE LINES FROM A MOVIE..The Hunt for Red October


          " I am a Politician which means I am a cheat and a Liar and when I am not Kissing babies, I am stealing their lollipops"...

            The Florida Lottery website takes almost twenty minutes to load on dialup and can't be used while loading, heck it won't even allow you to leave.

            Watch, their big new ideas will be stolen from other state lotteries, oops, I meant research.

              Florida should allow people to play by subscription and online from all over the US. It would generate additional revenue for education.

              We all get a lot out of lotteries!
