          Here is my email.  I suggest TN players like me email them and bug them and threaten so they will get the message.

          There is nothing exciting about a Random Number Generator picking numbers.  It does have a lose in integrity no matter what security measures are taken in my opinion.  I never miss a lotto 5 drawing and part of that reason is seeing the balls drop while holding my ticket.  However, having a computer pick the numbers is less appealing to "Die Hard" players like me.  I'm not sure if that would be the best way to draw and I will have that under close consideration when deciding whether to play GA Fantasy 5 or TN lotto 5.  Just some thoughts.

              go to the tennessee lottery home page and scroll down to the top news story where they tell you about the money they have raised for the second quarter of sales this year, it is in that story...

                  Yep.....

                  Pretty sneaky, hidden in the newsroom, 

                  I don't know if there's a plus side to it, but Tn. Lotto-5 has never been over a Million, as far as I know.

                  I sure am used to seeing it get won all the time thoughUnhappy

                    Good response, Tnplayer805.

                    I hope computerization of the TN lottery doesn't take place.....

                      One more thought :

                      Wait til LottoMike hears this - he will blow a gasket too !!!!!

                        I'm afraid Lottomike already knows...  He is laying on the floor next to his computer in convulsions.  lol

                            Yep.  It has hit $1 million and been over 1/2 million several times!  I love that game but not if it goes to RNG.  I would rather drive to GA!

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

                              I never thought I would see the day Becca would want to go to RNG.  She's been in the business for a long time and should know better!  I guess she'll find out the hard way when people boycott her games.
