Is there any further information other that what was already discussed here at lp. http://www.lotterypost.com/news/226403/1922994

Like how many states are considering going private?

How can one fight against this occurring?

Would a petition of signatures help?

    Now Missouri is talking about doing it.

    I think there was some kind of delay with Illinois.

    If not, we haven't seen anything different as far as any of the games go.

    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.

      Last I heard the switch won't happen until June or July. Going private may not be a bad thing if they do more player rewards and incentive promotions. The key for them is to get new players hooked and keep current players interested and private sector business mostly seem to do more profitable and efficient job than government counterpart. Can you imagine how poorly a state run casino would do? Would you really do your best if there is no fear of losing your job no matter how poorly you perform?

        What people dont understand is that this a vast amount of money going to the top 2 percent. This means that the owners of these casinos and state lotteries Do Not have to disclose their earnings which will inevitalbly hurt an already underfunded educational system. This also allows them to be able to classify their earnings as a "Small Business" which will alleviate them from paying their fair share of taxes. I hope everyone see what is going on. These greedy people will soon try to privatize mother nature's harvest to keep you from owning a farm and so forth (which is already going on in other countries). They are already taking rights away from workers. Open your eyes, the gov. will use all the disasters it created itself to strip you bare naked.

          The deal calls for Northstar to take over management on the first day of the state's fiscal year, July 1.
