In 2004 and 2005 back when games were ball drawn i won over 25 grand here on Cash 3 and Cash 4 including once when i hit a pick 3 number ten times for 5,000 dollars.Something that will never happen again because after they went computerized/RNG in 2007 i immediately quit playing and haven't since.

At one point in time i was on fire with the numbers here but like anything good it didn't last.

 

Last time i hit was mid February of 2007 on a pick 4 number straight 4658 and me winning on that number enabled me to move where i now live today.

 

Rebecca Hargrove ruined the lottery here.

We could change that, LOTTOMIKE, if we could ever get people to work together towards a common goal in this state.

But even if we got a lot of the Terminal Game players to cooperate, I doubt that the Scratcher players would. 

Some people say they're a hard-headed bunch but I think it's wrong to label people like that.

    Ridge, what are you saying it would take -- to stop buying ALL ticket types in TN?

    I know cutting all would Hurt their sales but I don't count MegaMillionsand Powerball since TNhas no control on that anyway...

    I am wondering why TN still will not do a raffle???

      The Dragon Lady and the people at the Tennessee Education Lottery pay absolutely no attention to us - the people who buy their tickets. They couldn't care less  about what we want or what we have to say about anything.

      They don't even care about their agents trying to rip people off for their winnings when they cash in tickets. If you call to report such an incident, they don't even want to know where it happened, they just tell you to be careful.

      Can you imagine how all that would change if we stopped buying their tickets - if we stopped the flow of cash going into their coffers?

      They would be begging us to tell them what we wanted and they would give it to us.

      "Real ball machine drawings? Absolutely, no problem! What else can we do for you?"

      And we wouldn't even have to stop buying PB or MM, although that would be even better.

      If we could simply boycott the state games like Cash3, Cash4, Tennessee Cash and Scratchers or even just one or two of those we could get the recognition and respect we deserve.

      But they would laugh at the prospect of that ever happening.

        I look at the numbers for cash 3 and cash 4 and wonder how they keep going. I guess they do recognize there would be an uprising if they took them away. But then again, they only show the winning amounts on their site. I can only imagine how much of sales that actually accounts for.In other words, they probably make an absolute killing on those games because people play them religiously, over and over, multiples at a time, yet rarely win.I never played those games when they had real ball drawings, and I dont play them often now, but I imagine I would more often if they went back to ball drawings.I will admit, however, that TN cash, MM and PB I play regularly but modestly, especially when Jackpots are low.
