Here is an extract from the Texas Lottery Commission meeting held May 19th.

 

        AGENDA ITEM NO. XI

          2                 CHAIRMAN WILLIAMSON:  And let's move on to

          3   the next item, a report by the Executive Director, any

          4   possible discussions or action on the agency's

          5   operational status, agency procedures and FTE status.

          6                 Gary, this is your item, please.

          7                 MR. GRIEF:  Commissioners, one item in

          8   addition to what's in your notebooks today.  I did want

          9   to make you aware that every year the National

         10   Association of State and Provincial Lotteries brings

         11   together all the state lottery directors from the United

         12   States for a meeting, a week of meetings.  This year

         13   I'll be hosting those meetings in Dallas the week of

         14   June the 13th.  There will be meetings of the Mega

         15   Millions Consortium, of which I'm the lead director,

         16   also the MUSL Consortium which has jurisdiction over

         17   Powerball.

         18                 I hope that there will be some exciting

         19   and interesting developments regarding one or both of

         20   those games during that week, that I'll be able to come

         21   back and report to you as to where one or both of those

         22   games might be going in the future.  We'll also have a

         23   full meeting of the NASPL organization while we're there.

The commission meets again on June 13th.

The agenda for this meeting includes discussion of some possible changes to
Texas Lotto game.

Thought LP folks  might want an update on developments regarding the Jackpot games.

      Thanks for the inof bobby623.

      I must admit when I saw this my first reaction was, OMG, they hired pumpi as a consultant!

      Scared

      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.
