Wow WA Lotto might shut down due to budget..
There are some states that create a scholarship budget based on expected lottery winnings. Some states MM's sales averaged less than $100,000 during the last jackpot run; I wonder how that would affect their scholarships if they had to pay one player $3 million like Virginia did.

Florida Scratch Offs - Post Pictures if posible
I will say for good measure that my Bright Futures Scholarship afforded me the opportunity to go to and Graduate from the University of Florida, which in turn afforded me an amazing opportunity to work for myself and have the money to dump back into the lottery! LOL So-called program it is not.

correct, that's why if you have a system that works, you sip from the cup.
but also the lottery does more than just make a profit at least in some states. they do contribute to state taxes and also a portion goes to educational scholarships and aid. kinda putting all that money to good use to help progress the state.

Online Lottery Play
The government helps themselves to our money having squandered much of what they already received.
If our government really wanted to help they would reduce their share of the take.
Make it easier to win, smaller game matrix evenly divisable such as 5/35 and 6/48 games.
Make the prizes tax free.
Pour the game profits into scholarships.
Wake me up when it happens.
