eventually i think people will play lottery [buy a ticket] with their cell phones if is not done already....

They ain't no phone booths or pay phones anywhere back up in here.

And they ain't nobody got cell phones cuz they don't work up in here.

What we need is someway to get tickets with a banjo.

    Pumpi is at it again.

    There ain't no phone booths anywhere anymore, but you make a signal fire and using the morse code order the lottery tickets from the state lottery, tell the lottery that you will pay them as soon as you make and sell some "Fire Water"  and or get enough snake skins to sell.

    As to the banjo, Can you sing and play "Oh, Susannah"

    It starts like this:

    I come from Alabama
    With my banjo on my knee
    I'm going to Louisiana,
    My true love for to see

      Digital terminals where you can buy an unlimited amount of tickets are going to be anywhere we currently see ATM machines which just means all grocery stores and convenience stores. The reason we won't see widespread adoption of cell phone and state recognized online play is the money it would drain away from local business. Digital terminals would remedy this and probably draw even more business....

        Let's modify Pumpi's idea, get John Titor's time travel machine (he's the guy from 2036) and put it next to the lottery booths.

        We can then time travel to the next drawing, come back and play those numbers!

        Maybe such a combined machine could be called the "Pumpitron Experimental 223

        X-Ray Zulu"!

        Scared

        Once upon a time under the blistering sun in the middle of the Mojave desert stood a lone phone box, ringing and ringing and ringing…

        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.

                    the last phone booth i saw in Baltimore one you could atctually sit in was taken to a museum that was in 1983. The other style the ones the drunks and junkies used as a bathroom or sleepover have all disappeared. Now your extremely lucky if you see a pay phone hung on a wall anymore.

                          What a coincidence, I'm applying for a patent on "Kielbasa Kiosks" first thing in the morning.

                          We just have to work a few bugs out and we'll have them in every major city.

                          We're just having a minor little problem with the automatic Grey Poupon dispenser right now.

                          It squirts it in your eyes instead of on the Kielbasa.

                          This would be a good time for savvy investors to get in on the ground floor.
