[quote]iowa does something similar. they have a thing called quarter play in which you pay $20 and you get a hand-held slot game in which the points determine your prize.[/quote]
Didn't see anything on their site, but it sounds equivalent to buying a package of pre-printed tickets. You would think they could eventually tie them into devices, such as cellphones. They could charge back to your telecom provider and you could use the keypad to control the interaction.
I'm only an occasional player, maybe once or twice a month. The store displays don't always carry all of the active games or the new games. It also seems like many of the winning tickets are going out in the sticks. At least, with a central respository of tickets, everyone has a shot first-come first-serve.
