Would you still play to win Lotto if the stipulation was that half of your net winnings would go directly to food banks?

It's basically a yes or no answer.

      If that's the case then that lottery better start off at atleast 100 million.

        1. Will it go into the food banks a wee but more efficiently than lottery revenue currently goes into "education"?

        Scared

        2. If I can get a relative to change their name to "Food Banks", will that still  take care of the stipulation?

        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.

            It's those "administrative costs" of food banks that I question.

            But, it is a yes or no question and I would have to say yes I would, because what's left would still be plenty of money to win.

                Yes, if it was free, I think it would be entertaining.  There would be no point in paying to play in a lottery if the prizes are donated to someone other than the winners.

                  no. Since its to broad a statement under food banks. You dont stipulate if the food bank is here or in another country. Maybe I come from the old county mind set. Teach a man to fish, he fishes for life. So give folks the tools to harvest and cultivate their food and then maybe I would reconsider the question and its reponse.(use seedlings, soil and water irrigation towards food harvest).

                   As it stands I could ficticiously (sp?) be giving food to a group who has done our country harm.
