Why would anyone play a lottery that is not paying out the prizes?

Lottery funds itself--why was it caught up in the budget mess at all?

I Agree! on both counts!

    Serves them right to mess with lottery funds and keeping folks from claiming their prizes that are over $600.00.

    Hope the citizens of Illinois think about re-electing these politicians who hold up lottery payouts.

    Shame on them!

          From this, it is apparent the STATE OF ILLINOIS is up to same old Bull#$#*.

          Question? When are you in a State that has corrupt politicians???  Ans. When you're in ILLINOIS.

          Attorney Thomas Zimmerman said the state's withholdings of winnings is illegal.

          "The Illinois Lottery Act requires a priority of payments. The first priority is that prizewinners get paid. They get paid first. After they're paid, then the money can be used to fund the operations of the lottery," Zimmerman said. "The state is using the money to fund the operation of the lottery and not paying the prizewinners, and that's a violation of the law."

               This may be forced abstinence. Some players who are addicted to the lottery may be going through a withdrawal cold turkey. They may not come back to the lottery ever again. Lost customers!No Pity!

                    I don't think they feel too badly about it ....that is right now. PB and Mega are pretty low. Now, if one or both were around $500mil, a lot of people would be taking road trips in any-which way.

                    May the balls bounce in your favor!
