Is this web site going to be legal?  We have had some long discussions about online gambling and the legality of it.  The U.S. laws are pretty clear about it ... it is illegal.  With the sites that are overseas, we have a different story.  The U.S. laws do not pertain to them and even if they did, the law punishes those that are selling not buying, so technically all of us that are using the online casinos are not breaking the law. 

Anyway, I'm sure this web site that Todd is talking about will not be in the United States!

      onenumber,

      That was an excellent summary of the situation!

      By the way, in the not-too-distant future, I will be teaming with a web site that will offer the same great payout on Pick3, for those who are able/willing to play online.  Unlike that "other" web site that was very poor to us, this other one is a really professional company, and I think provides a much better alternative.

      Stay tuned!

      This should be very interesting, I hope that they don't have anything to do with the state lotteries, other than maybe just using their winning numbers. I wish that there was another alternative source of winning numbers, something very much more truly random and not controlled by anybody in any way.

      Good luck and hurry it up Todd.

        All srvices need competition to keep them honest, so the more such services, the better for everybody involved.

        Where ever you win the most and the more often, those people should get your business.

          Actually, I just heard a frighteningly-disturbing story about the site that many people from LP play at.  (You all know which one I'm talking about.)

          I am not kidding when I say that I would be honestly scared to play there.  Literally.  I joke you not.

              I contemplated joining the "frighteningly-disturbing" site (I liked that phrase, Todd), but I'll stick to my own good old-fashioned IL lottery and play at my favorite convenience store with cash and get paid with cash 15 minutes after the drawing.

              Payouts are important, but if you don't support your own state lottery, it is hurting the state (usually the education budget) and may make their lottery not profitable enough to coninue their games.  Then where will these online outfits get their numbers from?...their own RNG picks?  And what happens when the site has a million dollars in their accounts payable department?  They could disappear overnight on the internet and leave their customers holding the proverbial "empty bag".

              I'd rather give my money to my state, not some other country's off-shore casino whose profits benefit no one else but themselves.  At least I know that my losses might be buying more teachers, computers, etc. for the kids in my state.

               

              Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

                Had a dream about playing on line throught this site. In the dream, someone from the company that handled the bets called me to say that I had made $30,000.00 during the previous month and they felt it would be best that I didn't hold that much in my account at one time. They  said that they could transfer it into an ATM account for me.

                What a pleasant dream.

                  I hope online lottery occurs. I hope they do the ball machine in a random order online.

                  Let me clear things up here a little. They don't have their own ball machines. They don't have their own RNGs.

                  They payout according to whatever the individual U.S. state's official pick-3 or 4 winning number is.

                  And about 80% more than what the states pay.

                    Sorry, it was told to me it in confidence, and I cannot reveal the story.  I wish I could tell you, but it may actually be dangerous to say.  The hairs are standing on the back of my neck as well.

                        I know what it is... When you win $30,000 or more, approx. a week later someone knocks on your front door and does you in. Right?

                        It's either that or all of the site's male officials secretly wear tu-tus at home.

                        I don't know i'm just guessing.

                            Well, now Todd got my hairs standing straight up! I've won over $5000 on that Fright Site, and they paid off. All my transactions were done by way of Western Union. No bank account transactions because I was a little nervous of that.

                            However, the thought of a 50 thousand dollar win scares me...'will I get payed'????????

                            However...I will play with Todd when he gets his site going.  Hurry up Todd!!!
