This is a fun thing to do.

Sometimes when you see two thread titles at the same time they can be kind of ironic.

Here's a few that are up right now:

What states should have for lottery slogans
Connecticut lottery killings

What is the most you've ever won and what was the first thing that you bought?
Nerver won, anything- ever

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.

          "Go with" is the one that drives me nuts.

          "Do you want to go with?"

          With who? With what?

              You know, actually that should say "That's just bad English", with the E in english capped, no? Or were you meaning like putting english on a pool ball?

                No problem

                Another one:

                "$5000 tonight"

                 

                Sadly in this thread, it had to be paid to the state.....

                 

                Better luck next time!!

                      You got me there. But not using an upper case is far better than continuously, (as I've seen with some folks over and over), butchering the English language in many avenues.

                        maybe you should talk to lotteryTECh about it personally,  instead of selling him down the river behind his back in other threads.
