Thanks for the heads up on the promos.
This Northstar group that took over for the state is definitely big time into marketing and self-promotion, but they've let a few things slide.
The results e-mails and payouts page on the website may or may not tell you where a winning ticket was sold and also they've stopped telling you what kind of ticket, except for one subscription woinner a few weeks ago.
The new machines can't quite do everything, for example, they won't take a multi-draw ticket.
For the last few days no matter what game you played there was a message on the tickets:
Play Cash for Life!
Scratch Games! These Games are Here For Good- And So Are The Prizes!
But yet if you go to the remaining prized page on the website it shows so many paid out and so many left.
I'm assuming they mean the $500, $1,000, and $2,500 a week for life instant games (scratchers). If that's so and these games are here for good, I'm guessing everytime one of the top prizes are womn they'll add one more.
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.
