This is a story for all Tennessee players,,,,First the only reason I started playing the pick 3 in Tennessee was hopeing to make a little extra cash because I was a victim of Idenity Theft,lost everything I had to creditors and was homeless for a few days...So when my friend took me in I started studing this state lottery,,,even lost more than winning I decided this is just not worth it.Do you think for a minute how much a lottery cares about you ? They dont just give them more money,thats what they want....I tell you one thing Georgia is so good to their people I think it's time to study them for a while,,,,when you walk into a store and say to the clerk give me a Giant Jumbo and instantly win 75.00   you see your own state in another light..I got sat evening and last night pick 3...I just wished I lived closer but once a week will be ok to travel....But they havent robbed me of thousands like Tennessee has,,,,,what do you do in a case like this.....All I know right now is Tennessee can go straight to you know where...GEORGIA is the only place to play in my book......I would love to have a bus go through Tennessee pick up people to play in Georgia....

      Extremely sorry to hear of your misfortune and hope your luck turns around for the better very soon. 

      I personally view any RNG drawing like was foisted upon Tennessee as a rathole looking to be filled with dollars.

      Appreciate your comments about the Georgia Lottery, plus we appreciate your participation in it. I feel Ms. DeFrancisco has done a totally remarkable job of restoring player confidence by creating new innovative games, promotions which give back to players. 

      Hope you win something very large very soon!!  Big Grin Angel

      Good luck to everyone!

        I have a lot of sympathy for your problems...  I really do...  And I too like the GA lottery...  However, you can't blame a state because you lost.  It's a game of chance that we all take.  Your chance is as good as my chance...  THAT is why it is a game of chance...  YOU mention the fact that you lost everything from Id theft...  Again, I'm very sorry to hear that.  BUT you say you were left homeless...  The thing I don't understand is if you're homeless, why are you relying on the LOTTERY for income?  I don't want to call you out but I think you may have a problem.  I'm not saying this to be ugly.  I'm saying all this because I CARE!!! Please, if that's the case seek help!  God Bless.  I hope everything works out for you.

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

          Agree 100% with this

          after you pay your bills, put gas in the car, buy grocieries and if u have money left over then its ok to play the lottery only spend what you can aford to lose.

              Tonight on a Monday night the payout in Georgia was $311,000   and Tennessee was $11,000   it's not that we are not playing because if a triple fell you would see over $200,000 payout,,,so that tells me that they see what is played before the actual drawing takes place.I'm not stupid by no means ,just stupid for spending the first dollar here....

                  I have followed payouts for Cash 3 and Cash 4 for both states.  TN's have never been as much as GA...  Even when we had ball drawings.  Another example of this is when triples are drawn on C3...  In GA, there are MILLIONS in payouts...  In TN., couple of hundred thousand.   

                  Like Emilyg said, you don't have to pay to be a member.  Infact, everyone that doesn't have a highlighted name. (LIKE ME) are not paid members.

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

                    Sorry to hear about your theft.

                    Like someone said, gambling is a game of chance.

                    I never like pick 3 because of the return.

                    Tn is not a good place for lottery players because it is all computerized.

                    I feel that if anyone wants to get your money they should take time to do a ball drawing.

                    It is no surprise that the dreaded TN lotto plus got won during their promotion with powerball.

                      Sorry to hear your upset with the Tennessee Lottery.  I like it.   Just in case you didn't know, a lot of states are using computers as well as Balls.

                      I have always had a great time playing the lottery in Tennessee.  My family and friends there have won jackposts so if you don't play you want win.  Don't give up to quickly all things come to those that wait.

                             Hummmmm!  That big a difference in payouts, huh?  I wonder why that discrepancy exists?  Could it be that Tennessee actually manipulates the winning numbers to minimize the amount paid out?  How coulld that possibly happen?

                            One possible way is to actually make several cartoons, find the one with the least payout, and publish that one to the state.  Yeah, that would do it.

                             Until Tennessee goes back to ball drops, I wouldn't play Tennessee with your dollar!!!!  And I live here.

                          Take a look back in the archive.  The payouts are roughly the same before and after the transition...  For example...

                          6/9/07 the numbers drawn were 222...  The Payout was $309,500  (Before)

                          4/3/08 the numbers drawn were 222...  The Payout was $362,000 (After)

                          I don't like RNG drawings either but the proof is there.

                          In GA 222 hit a few days ago and the payout was $5 million.  GA simply has more players.

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