    One thing I don't like about the change is that I won't be able to choose which draw I want to play on the playslip. Right now, I can choose day or night. When it changes, whenever I play it will be for the next draw. If I want to play multiple draws it will have to be consecutive draws instead of multiple day draws or multiple night draws.

    When they started All  or Nothing I wrote an email to Michelle Byrd telling her that I and other players want the option to pick which draw we could play. She replied that she would refer it to the products manager to look into it. Guess we'll see what happens. They did mention it at the commissioners meeting this month, but that's it.

    If it is as you say, then it will be bad, a person should be able to choose which draw he or she wants to play.

    I think that they should also have as an option 25 cents plays for $20 box and $125 straight wins.

      Now the players will have twice as much tracking to keep up with. Is that good or bad?

      BAD.

      I can hardly keep up with two draws per day.

      Isn't this the same state that not too long ago voted to ban Lottery in TEXAS?

      What happened? they reversed that decision and then turned on the Nuclear Naplam Nimcompoop Afterburns?

        You can choose which draw you want to play, but you have to have the clerk manually enter the data on the touchscreen terminal.

        Some clerks are more apt to do that than others.

                There is hardly anytime between the drawings for morn/noon.

                Texas better get some online gambling if they want to make it convenient for players.

                Between AON, and this move, little tent lottery communities will begin to pop up around bodegas all over the state.   That way people dont have to have go home and back to the store 8 times a day.

                    Well, there is a faction of state lawmakers in Austin that have always hated the lottery and gambling. That's why we don't have casinos in Tx. Right after they voted to end the lottery, someone noticed that they would have to make up about 5 billion dollars a year in new taxes. Ooops. Ok, we keep the lottery.

                    Our lawmakers are no different than the ones in any other stae, or Washington for that matter. They're all idiots.

                      I remember in the late 90's we had one eveing draw in Florida and Georgia had pick 3/4 twice a day an I was so jealous. I wished we had twice a day drawings in Florida. Then we got it and it was so hard to watch for trends and patterns and  I lost twice as much. When we had one draw a day, I was able to get hits easier. So good luck to the Texas players who will soon learn. More drawings equal more money for the Taxas lottery not the players.

                      Guess Who's Back?

                        As a Texas Lottery player I am not overly
                        thrilled about the new changes, I see it as
                        a "BIG" win-win for TLC and most likely not
                        so for the players. Well we will see if this will
                        be gaming at it's finest or a headache!!

                            Yep,

                            Draw to draw strategy could be difficult for players to keep up with.

                            Players will have other choices of strategy. Pick a draw and track strategy just for that draw.  The other choice could be combine all draws for data keeping and find keeper combinations to be played.

                            Individual draws have their own stats and combined draws will show their own stats.

                              I am not a twitter user or twit follower but I take it that twit came from the Texas lottery.
