You may remember some of the posts I made about what I would do if I was director of a certain state lottery. But what would you do if you were lottery director? What would you change? What would you introduce?

    i would make sure that the state had a contract that they ALWAYS use ball drawings for as long as the lottery is in affect.they would not be allowed to change to computerized drawings.

      How about this...  Say we were OK Lottery's new director.  We have to build to lottery corp from scratch.  How would you do it? 

       

      First I would work to try to have scratch offs on sale by October 1st.  I would have a $1 ticket, $2 ticket, and $5 ticket on sale on the first day.  Pending on sales which look to be strong in OK.  (A little help from Arkansas) I would start pick 3 in late November with drawings every night.  (I would introduce a new scratch off every 2 weeks)  I would start pick 4 pending pick 3 sales in Jan.  I would bring Powerball in around March or April and then a pick 5 game in Sept of 06.   Promotions would include 2nd place drawings for some scratchers.  All drawings would be Ball. 

      In 2007 I would start up an instate lotto game and maybe bring in 2by2.  Midday drawings would also come in mid to late year.

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

            I would double the three lowest prizes. The first prizes are often insane high anyway.

            Why not give something to the faithful lottery buyers who only win low prizes?
