I don't like anyone telling me how I can waste my money.  If I choose to buy scratch-offs online or in the store, cigarettes, junk food or any other vice I have It is my money I will spend it all anyway I want.

Good for you "mammary517" glands. It's your prerogative if you spend all your money on sour milk also. Like you really need it.Big Grin Santa

    I wouldn't trust this at all.

    Hope a Minne-ho-ta lottery official is monitoring this thread.

    See Ya!

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        This is a terrible idea. Not for the state but for the players.

        Do you know how fast it would take to scratch a virtual ticket? Do you know how fast it would take

        to drain a deposit of $100? $200? $500? wow..this is just too much. They realize what they're doing

        and setting a limit or offering caps on funding and ability to play is just a cover-up. They always want

        to appear to be willing to help but it turns out they are just helping themselves. Who cares if there is

        a cap or limit on the amount ONE player can play? With the ease of purchase, the convenience of at

        home play and the ability to buy without someone waiting behind you or having someone watching

        you taken out of the picture this will bite more than a few players in the rear...really bad.

        This is ultimate greed and shows a total disrespect for the players. At least out at the machine you

        eventually have to quit due to low ticket stock, players in line, busy registers or the neighborhood

        hawk in the vicinity. There is none of that at home in front of your own computer. Sick pickle they

        got the Minnesota people in but they'll keep on rubbing their hands together and rake in the dough.

          I prefer the old way of going to your local store and buying your tickets!  Enough said!Smash

            Don't like this at all....

            I agree

                I don't agree to such a thing for it would create a much wider range of addiction to our people, but I worry the most is our youth for they are the most vulnerable potential victims of addicition. Furthermore we cannot assure the transparency if we are going to play lottery online. I still prefer the actual scratch-off tickets the thrill of buying that and scrathing it off is priceless for me.
