    In Tennessee the Lottery Director needs to go away.

    And she needs to take her freaking computers with her.

    I would like to see a 6 number Lotto game started to fill in Monday and Thursday nights but only if we get rid of the stinking computers.

        "Sweet Millions" in New York. When you correctly get 5 out of the 6 winning numbers drawn you only get $500.00 and the odds of matching 5 out of 6 numbers in sweet millions is 1 in 18,816. Compare that to the odds of winning $500 in the pick 3 game which is only 1 in 1,000. Your odds of winning $500.00 in pick 3 are over 17 times greater than the odds of winning $500 in "Sweet Millions".Plus where is all the money going that the players used to play the games when the jackpot ISNT WON in ANY given drawing, because when no one wins the 1st place prize which is 1 million dollars the first place prize NEVER increases for the next draw even if no one won the first place prize for ten consecutive draws or more... the first place prize will never be raised for the next draw so where is the money going that we use to play sweet millions????Confused Obviously probaly going to the NY Lottery but I dont think thats right I think the 1st place prize should increase for the next drawing when no one wins the Jackpot in the previous draw

        Sweet Millions in NY is the type of game i'll only do a $1 or $2 Quick Pick when i'm feeling lucky.

          This won't be popular here but I think raffles are a big ripoff and nothing but an appeal to the ego.

          The Illinois raffles are a $20 buy in and while guaranteeing 509 winners they are also guaranteeing 499,491 losers but of course don't want the players to know that part.

          "Come on up folks, I need 500,000 people to give me a $20 bill. 509 of them are going to get something back!"

          "Oh, give me a ticket, give me a ticket!!! I just know my ticket will wind up in the pile of 509 winners and not over there with the 499,491 losers"

          I know a Pick 6 or 5 + 1 game is kind of the same thing, BUT, big BUT, even at the $2 million start pooint for Pick 6, the $1 spent may win $2,000,000.

          Consider that even if you win a million in the raffle, at the $20 price, every one of those raffle dollars wins $50,000.

          Not quite as exciting as the hype.

          There is some real entertainmdent value here though, 'cause it sure seems like some of the people that are vehmently oppossed to Quick Picks can't wait to buy raffle tickets.

          What?      Green laugh

           

          I'd like to see this at a lottery terminal when raffle tickets are sold:

          The governor wants you to know that if you'd like to donate $20 and want to skip the formaility of getting a ticket and thinking you're going to win something, just tell the clerk you'd like to send $20 to the capital and don't need a ticket.

          /////////////////////////////

          My crystal ball says that withing five posts of this one someone is going to say what a great deal the raffles are.

          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.

                  I would have no problem sacrificing Lucky4life for a ball drawn keno..but that can't happen because of agreements with the Indians/casinos

                      She wanted  more money than we could pay her. We got her from Fla. Kick her back to fla If the people

                      got together and stop playing than they would do something about her, but you and I know that would never

                      happen. We have the power to stop alot of things.

                          PA's Mix & Match....a totally pukey game that has the catch phrase of: One ticket, twice the fun...

                          Right...it's one ticket twice the ripoff. Jackpot starts at $50,000 and it costs $2.00 per ticket....match 5 numbers in the right order or up to

                          5 in any order.

                          Match 4 in any position and win: $20    Puke

                              rdgrnr,

                              You certainly have wit.

                              Come to think of it, we're probably getting close to someone here at LP telling us they have a "raffle system".

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