Has anyone heard of Lotto Magic?  As I understand, you have to pay a monthly fee and sign up others under you and you get commission checks every month plus a share in tickets of the Florida lottery.  Any response would be appreciated.

    Too many red flags for me.

    First of all it's multi-level marketing, and the only one of those you ever want to be involved in is one you start - if you're not at the top of the triangle you're just helping someone else make money. 

    Secondly, not sure it's legal, selling Florida lottery tickets by mail, interstate. 

    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.

      Thanks.  I kind of got the same feeling.  They make it sound good, but you are right, unless you start the pyramid, you will be squashed at the bottom.

        I didn't know someone was working that scam on an American lottery.  It works like that e-lottery syndicate scam in Europe.  In order to play free or make money you have to sucker other players into sending them money too.

            This is scam stuff, which is why I'm locking it.  It's a fair question, but I want to give the scam as little publicity as possible.
