this sounds believable and true. of course they would pull games when danger was looming that they might sell one of the remaining big ones if they leave it out for sale. people have to wise up and only play games which they select numbers or qp. problem is they want that instant gratification they get from buying that scratch off card and getting immediate results. patience is a virtue and there's a sucker born every minute.

    Way to go Indiana!!  I for one am very happy I very rarely play the scratch offs.  I stick only with Powerball and Mega.  Sounds like a total rip off to the players.

    Unfortunately, there are too many important issues to vote on so this won't enter into my decision this year in my voting.  I am sure they will get away with it.  It is written in black and white on the scratch offs that they can terminate the game at anytime.
