This week, I saw a printout of the Mega Millions numbers, and the number of winners in each category in NY state. Also, there was an asterisk, and below, it said that the number of winners did not include NY subscription winners.
For years the only NY lottery game available via mail has been NY Blotto (in the 1990s you could briefly play Take Five this way, when it was twice a week; soon after T5 went to four weekly drawings, and subscription play ended).
MM has long since surpassed NY Blotto in sales; other MM states have play-by-mail, so you have to wonder why NY has not given players this option. I wonder if NY has refused to offer MM subscriptions to encourage people to play the World's Biggest Ripoff™ instead.
PS-Blotto Extra begins in two weeks (3/1).
