    So who owns the advertsing company?  Friends, family?  Yes, i am so jaded, I trust NO politician.

    I thought that these types of business deals only happen in the garbage and construction industry.

      Lottery by itself is supposed to benefit education in Jersey,

      but more than 69% of my $11000 + property tax goes to the school district.

      Has it ever been said that the lottery is the SOLE funding source for education?  Yes, the proceeds from the lottery are meant to BENEFIT education, but I don't think it's the only place schools are supposed to get their money.

        The problem is, as with so many revenue raising ideas, the income from this venture falls into some bottomless pit and is never tangibly realized.  Pot holes will still go unfilled, state employees will still be laid off, and taxes will rise by as much as they will if this never happened.

        Seems so simple: three digits, 168 to one odds when boxed... all you have to do is pick the right ones!

          haymaker,

          All too often lottery money goes through the school system, not to the school system.

          It's not the lottery's fault though, the states practice voodoo accounting and put the money into the school system and then take it or a greater amount out of the school system somewhere else in the system.

          There was a recent article on Yahoo business about states that spend the least on schools, Nevada and Mississippi (casinos, no lottery) were both on it, and the other eight states or so on the list had lotteries.

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

          Lep

          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.
