    Like over 99% of all players, the state is the number one beneficiary of all my lotto playing so I would have to say I play for the state.

      Well..it depends on how much I win..I usually give 10% to a charity..sometimes my family gets a blessing as well...

          This says that you are right:

          http://www.txlottery.org/export/sites/default/Supporting_Education/

          "The Texas Lottery has generated well over $17 billion for the state of Texas since the first ticket was sold in 1992"

          ---------------

          Those billions didn't just drop down from the sky.

                Thanks LANTERN.

                I went to that link and saw the Texas slogan at the bottom: "When Texans Play, Texas Wins"

                Man, if that ain't the truth, I don't know what is. Makes it sound like the player hasn't got a chance against the state.

                Not a very good advertising ploy when you consider it in a literal sense but it is the truth though, lol.
