Education seems to be a major player with lotteries as far as the majority of revenue is allocated to. I'd be curious to see the selection LP members would make had they picked their ideal way of  using the revenue given the choice.

    I voted other. I would have added police, fire fighters, and public libraires to the list.

    I once wrote the Illinois lottery about somethinglike this. I suggested such a list on the playslip or back of the ticket,

    "Should my $1 not win, I'd like it to go to.........".

    They replied and said it wasn't possible to fdo that. I say baloney, the technology exists.

    Ironically though, now Illinois has scratchers for MS research, Veterans, a few others.

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


    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.
