Years ago I had some small winners from S. Lake Tahoe, CA and sent the lottery there a suggestion to let you type in the information vs handwritten for the claim form.   Well their legal department sent a nine page or so form that I would not attempt to get financial monies from my suggestion, sign and return.   I did but thought w-f??

Eek  Yeah, that's them. By the way- l * Think the MM jackpot gets hit tonight. A California winner somewhere in there.

    I though CA wanted the middleman? all the retailer get commision from sale? We had a similar discussion in Sweden a few years ago, stores and reseller loosing money when all lottery sales went online.

      A slew of states had five numbers including California.   Just walking the dog in the snow.   Hey CA secondary not to shabby over a $1.22.   

       

      Maybe Todd won one of the secondary prizes in New Jersey, though I doubt it...he probably does Megaplier!

          "Wouldn't make more sense to have their own Online sales without the middle man like many other state lotteries do?"

          All those existing retailers are middlemen already, and a sold ticket is a sold ticket. Having their own online sales would save the lottery the commission, but despite selling  online the lotter is just one more retailer.

            One retailer's daily, weekly, and monthly sales aren't even in the same ball park with the potential volume Online sales have. But I suppose if someone wants to safely play huge odds jackpot games throughout the world, The Lotter is what they are looking for. 

            What value does the Texas Lottery gain if many of their players are spending their lottery dollars anywhere but Texas?
