IL and I'm very happy with our lottery.  I think scratch off games are bad no matter what state you're in.

Wreakshavoc, I like Chris Farley in your signature...good one! 

Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

      I'm from the Zeta Riticuli star system and we have this neat drawing three tinmes a gidwhich (ZR time) where these asteroids are numbered with day-glow orange paint and then there's something equivalent to the ball drawings talked about here.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Dang, didn't get back in time to edit.

        One time two of the asteroids collided and shattered each other, but the numbers on them were visible for a secind and people who had those numbers..........

         J/K!

        Seriusoly, I'm in Illinois and I guess the lotto is OK. Scrathcers could be a little 'looser', and I see the raffle as a farce (all state lottery raffles thus far).

        My most played game is Little Lotto, which is 5 / 39. It used to be 5 / 30 and  from everything I've learned at LP, I would have played it a lot more when it was 5 / 30.

              Oklahoma here....Our scratch-offs are terrible, pick-3 once a day is okay, but I wish we'd get the pick-4

              Hey, I used to live in Kingfisher, Oklahoma Iknow alot of people want the pick 4 but do you know if a state lotto could be in the works?

                South Carolina pick 3 and pick 4 are whack!!! It seems like the SC Lottery is just a joke.

                  I'm from Georgia and I'm happy as long as I'm winning. Don't much like the new Director we have.- too may repeats. Used to hit often when Rebecca Paul was here....Those were the good ole days

                    I'm from Tennessee and I'm happy with lottery in general because there is no state tax on winnings, but I'm unhappy with the payout on Cash 3. I play pick 3 in KY and Cash 4 in TN. I love Lotto 5, I just wish I could more then 3 numbers.

                    I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                      Speaking of raffles, I'm wonering how the KY raffle is going to go off. They're selling 500,000 tickets for the drawing 7-7-07. I just bought a ticket this morning and it was 109,000. There is only 27 days left before the draw and I hope they don't sell them all so I have a better chance at one of those $500,000 prizes.

                      I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                        Tennessee here.  I'm pleased with the lottery.  I wish lotto 5 would be daily instead of 3 days a week.  As for scratch offs...  They are the best I've seen.  Even better than GA's odds wise.  Go Rebecca Paul Hargrove.

                        How are you going to win if you don't play?

                          I live in Arizona, where it seems that the lotteries are getting better.  The Arizona (Fantasy) Pick 5 now has a rollover jackpot.  And the payouts for the AZ Pick 6 have gotten better, $3.00 instead of $2.00 for 3/6 and $50.00 instead of $40.00 for 4/6 and $2000.00 instead of $1000.00 for 5/6.  But they did take away the bonus ball for the AZ Pick 6.

                           I'm originally from Georgia, and before GA had the lottery, I knew people who would drive 90 miles to Florida just to buy lottery tickets. And then when GA finally started a lottery (I believe in 1995), people there just went crazy. I don't know how long the lottery has been around in AZ.
