Well, we play to win, don't we?  I'd be screaming if I won on a cash option ticket.

    If YOU win, it'll be on a CVO. If you win in NM, everybody will pressure you to take cash.

      I guess it remains to be see whether I take cash or annual payments.  Who'd pressure me?

        The people who advise you on how to collect.

            That's what I mean. Other players think annuity, but after they win...

                NOBODY will ever convince me annuity is better. I might die tomorrow.

                    And I'm open to other ways of thinking, such as cash might not be a bad choice.

                      If I win, it's MY money. It belongs to me.

                        Yep, cash is always better because it's YOUR money, not the state's!!

                          There is no need to jump borders or drive anywhere to buy lottery tickets. The Massachusetts lottery offers a subscription service you can use from the privacy of your own home. There are no residency requirements, you can live in Hawaii and play the Massachusetts lottery games. You can order your subscription by telephone, they have a toll free number. They send the subscription by UPS, so they charge $4 for that, they can't send them by the postal service.

                          Hmmm, do you know are there any other states where season tickets are offered as a subscription for people from out of state...

                          ?
