    thought this might give a general idea of just how many here are really doing good and who aren't as far as online.....i'm probably one of the very few who actually made thousands.i think califdude did pretty good too but i haven't seen very much except from maybe one or two people.

      Living in a state that has a lottery will not affect me much.
      Will just take away the fun of playing other states.

      Just lay more money on instate bets for better payout on trap numbers.

        bet on line very little - so won't change my life.

        love to nibble those micey feet.

            I voted it  won't have any influence on my life one way or another.

            Tried online betting briefly during the smoke and mirrors of the Lottery-Bible-Take-It-To-The-Bank fiasco, lost a hundred or two and didn't make any trips to the bank.

            Haven't touched it since, the on-line thing.

            As for you, young amigo, I don't think you're going to suffer.  I think you gonna take home a Tennessee jackpot and not have to spend any time worrying about online, nor offline, either, comes to that.

            That's a prediction you can take to the bank.

              thanks jack for the encouragement!

              looks like that will be my only alternative if we get shut down.see the beauty of betting online is there are certain states where you can make better money on than the one you live in.i personally never do that well for tennessee but better in other places like oregon and virginia.if the thing is banned my well is pretty much dry.

                    Mike:

                    To be honest, I grew up too early last century I suppose.  I've always held out some serious doubts about anonymous people out there in never-never-land being honest if it ever came to a big win online.

                    I feel the same about online casinos.  A real, honest to Injun casino where there's a dealer and a table and a cardboard fan ain't above trying to help  the odds occasionally.  I just don't trust a computer somewere to be programmed in a way that's going to let me walk away with any money.

                    RNG.  Right Nostril Got the bird of paradise, the other one got nothing is how I'd always expect to work.

                    It's why I don't play the only thing available to me (offline).  NM Roadrunner.  What possible reason do I have, thinks I, to believe those numbers they post as winners every night didn't come off a napkin the NM Lottery Commissioner wrote down while he was having supper with his chums?

                    But all that's thread drift.

                    Good luck, my brothah.

                        jack when we bet online there is a place that takes bets on any state and they go by the actual results of that state so there is no way they can cheat you.i've gotten paid a few thousand on a couple of occasions when i hit the numbers.lets say i bet 7458 for new york.if that number comes in for new york they owe me fair and square.and they've paid me and all is well in paradise and my bank account.however i agree with you as far as playing online casinos because those are rigged to their advantage.thats why i play the lottery games because they can't rig it.if 7846 comes in oregon as soon as it comes in they send me an e-mail stating they owe me and how would much would i like to withdraw into my account.your right about roadrunner cash i wouldn't play it either because its computerized and those draws can be rigged to the states advantage.

                          Yes NodI would affect me because NC still does not have daily games yet.  I would miss hitting 3 and 4 times a day in different states.
