      I voted for NY because of the terrible payback in NY Lotto, and its annuity-only scratch games. The King Kong Millions game was drawn by computer.

        You didn't mention NM Roadrunner.

        It's a comp drawing.  The jackpots tend to be low, considering the buck for a ticket, and it just doesn't have much in the way of pizzazz.  I think they'd do a lot better going with two tickets for a buck and a 5+1 with a matrix similar to KS, or with a 6/25, but with tickets at two for a buck.

        Just the view of one New Mexican who'd like to see it be a better game.

        It's about number behavior.

          Ohio is the worst because of it's replacement of Super Lotto Plus with the idiotic Lot-O-Play, and replacement of Buckeye 5, (5 of 37), with Rolling Cash 5, (5 of 39).

              MINNESOTA!!!  MINNESOTA!!!  MINNESOTA!!!!

               

              Total scandals including TWO past Lottery Commissioners committing suicide amongst such shady circumstances.  Of course, any state that has computerized drawings basically is coming forth saying "OUR STATE LOTTERY DRAWINGS ARE RIGGED"!

               

              Just my two cents!

              Good Luck,

                I like Rolling Cash5 better than Buckeye5 because I can wait till the prize is $400K+ and play more at one time rather than playing a little every day for a $100K prize.  I think Lot'O Play will be replaced within the year with a Super Lotto type game which starts with a lower jackpot, possible $1M. I like the MegaMillions game, so overall I think Ohio lotteries are as good as most states.

                        Michigan....cheat, cheat, cheat.......we caught them calling the number before they even come up the chute...when I called them on it.....they said it didn't happen.......I didn't have it on tape.....someone is supposed to be TIVOing it........so the next time we got them by the balls.........it will happen again...they did it twice last month (November)....one time they even put the numbers on the TV screen 15 minutes before a supposedly "live" draw.  You call them on it, and they say it didn't happen....or the Commissioner review the tape and nothing was out of order...........I don't understand how people can lie like that.  Come on Michigan, I am just waiting for you to screw up again and I am going to be sitting on the Governor's doorstep till they let me in.  I am a lion when I get screwed over.

                            The worst lotto is my vote Texas because people rarely plays the Lotto Texas bonus game causing lots of rollovers. I would have picked CA because they have it computerized in all games except MM and CA SLP, but I stick my vote to Texas because I don't want to pick CA [where I live].

                              This reminds me of something I saw on TV back around 1992. I live in DE and I was watching TV one evening around 7 pm when they flashed the winning number for PA on the screen. It was 000.  However, when I checked the paper the next day the number was something totally different than that. Then the next night (or that same day that I checked the paper), the number drawn was 000.  It was hard for me to believe that PA was taping the draws in advance.  Never could understand that one as I often see the PA draw live on TV nowadays.
