I don't get how this is disturbing. Lots of games don't offer prizes I would consider high enough. Like Mega for example. Disturbing would be the large games switching to computer RNG drawings. Or all lotteries in the US switching to RNG drawings. Or worse, the IRS considers a lottery winning as a Capital gain AND income and is subject to both taxes.

    "Disturbing" because in the US, lifetime prizes usually do not offer a cash option. Canadian lotteries give players a choice of C$1000 a week for life or C$675,000 lump sum.

      You are forgeting something.  We do not know what the matrix will be.  Considering it is possibly replacing a pick 5 game, it may be a pick 5 game.  They may have just opted to go with a prize that fits the odds.

      I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

        they elected good ole hillary didnt they, why do you think i got the hell out of that state after living there my whole life of 26 years.  the people of new york are about the most naive and misguided people in the country, look at the population losses over the past 10 yrs plus, all the people with any brains, and who live in reality....got the hell out.  anything new yorkers get, (or dont), they deserve, their the ones voting these morons into office.

          If approved, Pay Check will go on sale in December. ME-NH-VT are also looking into a raffle game.
