With Northstar running the Illinois Lottery now, there have been weird things going on. The one glaring notice I saw was under the description for the new game Awesome Aces:

"Awesome Aces

Cost: $1
Game Number: 807
Features: WIN UP TO $2,500!

If YOUR CARD beats THIER CARD within a game, win PRIZE shown for that GAME. Reveal a black "A" symbol, win DOUBLE the PRIZE shown. Reveal a red "A" symbol, win TRIPLE the PRIZE shown.

Approximate overall odds of winning (including break-even prizes) are 1 in 4.87."

First of all they can't spell Their right! Secondly, their twitter link from the top right of their website is not working. And finally Wheel of Fortune is a rip off! :)

Any other comments positive or negative about the Illinois Lottery that I have missed?

    Yeah.

    This is an e-mail with the Little Lotto results prior to Northstar:

    After Northstar:

    LITTLE LOTTO PRIZE PAYOUTS FOR MONDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 2011

    That one gave no store location.

    Since then they've included the store, but not the type of ticket, QP, subscription or not (no descritption used to mean a player's selection).

    This one doesn't give the store's vendor number with the lottery:

     WINNING NUMBERS:   13 - 17 - 21 - 34 - 35

    I think these guys are so busy promoting themselves and new games and promotions that they've forgotten about the rest.

    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.
