Well we all remember the game tournament (which Lotto 5 won thanks to a great jackpot run). Well how about a tournament for entire lotteries. Which state has the best lottery? I'll come up with a bracket soon. And this time, it's win or go home. No double elimination.

      I guess this is sort of a subjective way to do the report card thing that I started with the State Lottery Report Card, but it's really going to be fun when all the criteria is objectively evaluated in the Lottery Post page, with actual weighted data, and the real winner emerges.

       

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

        NY has one of the country's worst lotteries. Mass is overrated because of its annuity-only prizes.

          Well, here's the bracket. I still have to schedule the polls though. So be patient.

          Best Lotteries

          And for those who like to predict, now you can in the Predict It! feature.

              I think I'm going to wait about a week before starting so everyone can make their predictions.

                How could one possibly rate other state lotteries that they don't play?  Wouldn't the best state lotto be one that you actually won?

                I play to dream and dream of winning a major jackpot!

                    DC has all their in-state games drawn by computer.  same with idaho, and NY's Qick Draw and Pick 10.

                    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.

                          i'd vote for either georgia,virginia or florida....

                          seems like most of the lotteries out west are computerized

                            I'm with Lottomike about FL,GA and VA.  BUT my friend you left out one great lottery.  That's TN.  I like TN because most retailers are friendly and if you email the lottery they will respond. 

                            How are you going to win if you don't play?
