This writer proposes $100 & $1000 scratch off tickets!

This was was written in jest of course, but the lottery corps are so beyond shame,  I won't be surprised when it actually happens!

Some other news tidbits on the page also.

    scroll down. NY may pull out of mega millions.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      You're kidding?! I hope they either join MUSL, or improve what they have in-state.

        Interesting. I hope NY does pull out. The odds are seriously ridiculous, and I won't be alive if/when my numbers come up in 1,000 years lol.

        People really got lost somewhere and forgot how hard the odds are at their own state lottery or even pick 5 games (although they are the best to play out of all).

          i kinda hope NY pulls out, but i kinda hope they don't. on one hand, NY will give out free tickets constantly, probably so if a NY player wins the jackpot, they get the state tax money. on the other hand, NY has the best sales of any current mega millions state. if they pull out, it will have an effect on the jackpots that CA may not be able to help.

            Nah - not gonna happen.

             

            Check the State Lottery Report Card
            What grade did your lottery earn?

              MM or no MM, NY needs to improve the payback % in Lotto.
