Todd, thanks for your hard work on this. 

There is one advantage to consider.  With gas as high as it is now, it would be cheaper to pay $2 per ticket than drive from Amarillo to San Jon to play Poweball.

Thanks again!

    For Powerball they charge $2.50 per ticket with a 5 ticket minimum.  This is what I was talking about.  For you, it is worth the risk to pay that to play Powerball instead of having to drive a long distance.  For me, it is only a 5-block walk or stop in on my way to somewhere.  I play $2 per week on Mega Millions and $2 per week on Super Lotto Plus.  I buy advance tickets, so I don't have to purchase the tickets as often.

      CD:

      What if you want to play Powerball?  What you're saying is just great, up until the point of trying to play a game that you don't have such easy access to.  Then the service charge of that company becomes a no-brainer.

      Orangeman:  I'm just as excited as you are about this.  (Can you tell?)  I've been in withdrawal ever since betslips closed their doors.

        That's exactly what I said, Todd.  For those people that want to pay the extra money and take the risk to play something that they can't play locally, then that's an option for them.  I don't care to play Powerball myself.  Actually, I don't care much for Mega Millions, but I'm playing $2 a week for now.  I may stop it.

          You don't sound like you enjoy playing lotto-style games in general.

            Whatever happened to betslips? I used to buy their FL all the time - then one day it was gone.

            (Or is this a subject on the no-no list?)

              Thanks for pointing out the advantages of Euro-Millions, Todd.

              The more I look at that game the better I like it.

              Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

              It's about number behavior.

                It's not a "no-no list" topic, but you can find lots of discussion about it back in the beginning of this year.  Try searching on topics with betslips in them, from the past year.

                  No problem.  It is a very good game.
