I just did the math, and this was far worse than the article makes it sound. 49.6% of purchasable combinations had no chance of winning.

    Any state lottery make the same mistake Tennessee made 12 years ago is just plain stupid and the TN fiasco was a year after Wisconsin's RNG drew the same numbers twice in 10 days.

      .

      This is just too much.   These secondary lotteries need to go by the way of the trash can.

      And Todd, as grateful as I am for being able to come to usamega.com and look up both main prizes
      in an instant, I think you should just report on these two main lottos
      which I've been a fan of since last century.

      But the dishonesty, the errors such as with New Mexico, in this case, and all other things just go to prove the
      validity and longevity of ONLY the two main lottos:  MM and PB.

      We don't need other games like rng, (except maybe for keno? idk. Haven't played keno in a while.).

      So, Todd, please, I think we (your loyal LP members) may all be confident that there are only 2 real lotteries to be played in the USA:  MM and PB.

      Mr. Groppo

      If MM and PB are the only real lotteries, why does the pick-3 Forum have 130,194 topics/3,607,670 post discussing pick-3 games?

      If MM and PB are so popular, where are the systems and playing strategies?

      There are lots of MM and PB topics about claiming tickets and spending imaginary winnings and I don't see pick-3 players condemning those games. Do you personally know a MM or PB jackpot winner or even a winner of a five number match?
