        That is too cool. How the heck do you do a snapshot like that? Do you need special software?

          I might be biased but im going with my state like some others said which is Massachusetts. I like the numbers game. It's just 4 numbers drawn you can bet on 3 or 4 straight and other types of bets. there is not a set prize payout like $500 for 3 straight or $5000 for 4 straight. Sometimes it will much higher or lower. I think its called parimutuel. Our scrathers payout the most, I think we might be the only state to offer scratch tickets that payout 10 million but im not sure though.

            from the best payouts,ball drawn or not,live draws,best promotions,scratch offs and a lot of different factors.

             

            choose one or maybe two states if its hard to decide.

             

            for me i'd have to say virginia has the best lottery followed by georgia.

            None of them have the best lottery they are all the same money grubbing businesses they just plaster their websites with come ons to draw you in. 

            The odds are basically the same for the majority of them and either you played the right numbers got the quick pick that won or you lost. No matter what they win and will continue to win as long as they exist and they are the overall winners having got you to purchase their product.

            Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

              Ohio is okay for me. It's the state where I live and play. I'm not going to drive 130 miles to play in PENN or 150 miles to MICH? There is NO Best State period. Play where you live and accept it. And hope for the best when you pick your numbers.

                  NJ isn't bad, although I don't have anything to compare it to.

                   

                  I like the way Massachusette's number game is, although Kentucky's 60% payout sounds good to me.

                   

                  If NJ raised the Pick 3 payout to their scratch off payout, 65% (usually), that'd be great.

                      1. I hit <alt><Print Screen> keys at the same time.  (This will take snapshot of current window and place it in clipboard.
                      2. I brought up Microsoft Paint program.  (i.e. Start/All Programs/Accessories/Paint)
                      3. From within Paint I selected Edit Menu/Paste, or you can hit CTRL-V from the keyboard.  This will paste the image from the clipboard from step 1 into your paint program.
                      4. I then saved the results as a .JPEG file.
                      5. I then brought up Paint Shop Pro image editing software where I cropped the image and reduced its size to make it smaller and again saved the new edited smaller image as a .JPEG file again.
                      6. Used Cute FTP software to copy the .JPEG image from step 5 to my web site.
                      7. Then I inserted the image with the URL to where the .JPEG is located on my web server into a message on this site.

                      So to take the snapshot and use Paint to save as .JPEG file is built into Windows.  I preferred to use a more Advanced image editing software to crop and resize the image versus using Paint.  You probably don't need a web site or FTP to post your image if your are a Gold/Premimum member, I assume Todd has options for you to upload your image to his web site but I have never used them.

                        Clipboard is basically invisible - it used to be that there was a viewer for seeing what is in your clipboard but that is gone in Vista.   Any time you can "paste" something, it is in your clipboard.  That can be text or an image. 

                        So, the only access you have to clipboard is "copy" - that places something into clipboard.  And "paste" that gets stuff out of clipboard.

                          I don't use PSP, however, can't you skip Paint and paste directly into PSP?

                          You can with IrfanView - that would eliminate opening Paint - one less step in your process.

                          IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide:
                          http://www.irfanview.com/

                          Will crop, resize, save to almost any image format, rotate, sharpen and much, much more.  Freeware/Donationware.  If you decide to try it, be sure to download the plug-ins as well.

                            Yes you can skip 2 and can typically paste (CTRL-V) directly into you image editing software.  I didn't know if he had such software.  If you are a Gold or Platinum member you can probably use the Image Manager to upload your image to your personal web site.

                            CTRL-C (Copy) and CTRL-V (Paste) are your friends for moving content into and out of the clipboard.
