I don't think there's any state right now tat has MM or PB and no state Pick 6, but it would be interestign if there was one to see the difference in lottery revenue betwen it and a state with both.

Tennessee, they dropped the Pick6 when MM came in.

    It's a way to get live ball drawings without spending extra money for a studio and crew.  This should make  players who complained about computer drawings happier about playing locally.

      Yeah, that computer P6 was a loser from the beginning but they wouldn't consider the fact that a lot of people won't play computer games unless there's nothing else.

      The Tennessee Lottery's mind is made up and set in stone.

      They're determined to do everything the way they do now and will never change, no matter what happens.

      I'm glad they dumped the P6 but it was cowardly the way they used MM as the excuse. They would have kept it forever otherwise though because dumping it would be admitting they screwed up.

        I hate giving my money to another state too, but statistics show that more winners are sold in areas where more tickets are sold.  The higher the population, the bigger the market, and the harder to saturate that market.  Therefore, more tickets have to be sold to completely saturate that market.

        I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
