Nationwide Lottery=Federal Lottery Commission

The Increase in Income Tax Collected would more than cover the Prize Awarded!

Still doubtful. Any entity that books action, whether it's a street corner bookie, a Manhattan "sports advisor" (try $50,000 a game, three game minimum bet), or a "Federal Lottery Commission, does it as a for profit business, not a gift shop.

The losers pay the winners and the house gets it "per".

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.

    i want to talk to all those that said no!! no? why? it wouldn't be any different from what we're doing now with MM and PB - you're not a true lotto enthusiasts if you said no- no way, give me your dollar, you don't deserve to play again!

     

    my wish is a WORLDWIDE LOTTO - WITH ONLY 5% TO IRS, 1% TO STATE TAX AND THE REST BEING YOURS .. IT'LL CONVERT TO WHATEVER LOCAL CURRENCY YOU USE WITH THE HIGHEST CURRENCY BEING THE BASE [EURO, POUND]

    now that would be a lottery for a lifetime ... it would get to $400million easily and the moon is the limit afterthat!

    when i win - solo, my lawyer will be instructed to say "a group of 52 retired navy seals have won" -- you know, to get the haters off my butt .. Sulk Off

      And so your answer is?

      Count me in if the tickets are no more than $20!

          Sure, I'm in. Can't win if you don't play. $20 would be my limit also, and that would be a bit high for me. I already spend about $40 a week now.

                    Yeah! And the good news is TN won't be running it so you won't have to worry about them "adjusting" any computers!   Hurray!

                      Every $1 (or $2 with the multipliers) spent on MM or PB is for a chance of that $1 winning multi-millions.

                      Even is the raffle prize was multi-millioins the buy-in is way beyond a 5 + 1 game buy in.

                      Odd that you yourself said "give me your dollar", not your $20.

                        OK, looks like we're gonna need Jade to figure this one out.

                        Hope he's got a lot more arrows.

                          This one might be easier because the national raffle should have more than 20 chances to win more than a $1 million. Someone should ask Jade or Joker if better to have one chance to catch a fish in a pond with 20 fish or have 20 chances to fish in a pond with one fish.

                          I'd ask but I don't understand the question.

                              I think it's high time we had a nationwide raffle.

                              There could be huge prizes while keeping the ticket price reasonable.

                              What do you think about it and what do you think the tickets should cost?

                              NO....... All Raffles S**K! And I still say NO to a National Lottery! I like it the way it is at the moment with PB & MM! If it's not BROKEN, no need to fix it!

                              OK, yes it would be fixed if the US Government got it's hands on it and it wouldn't be in a good way either! Talk about getting a Royal Screw'n!

                              Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up
