Hi there lotto people, My name is Henry.

I have been looking at the lotto's for a while and have been tempted to play them but havent, guess i'm one of the people that plays a dollar and looses and just accepts that thats how it will be.


Anyways, what do you guys think of a lottery for a computer as a prize? relative to the normal lotterys there will be a REALLY SMALL limit of players that could buy tickets ( 65-78 tickets TOTAL) but each ticket would be $10, the prize ( computer) would be a $800-$1200 computer ( depending where you look for the price) the computer would be ordered on the drawing date, it is the winners decission if it is an AMD or Intel computer so it has to be bought After being drawn.

I have a group of numbers taken from twobytwo ticket quick picks.  two 2-digit numbers between 01 and 26. a total of 78 tickets are here


anyways, let me know what you think... i would really like to see this happen, it would be interesting to say the least

Your idea is illegal.  By law, you cannot run your own lottery where people wager money for a chance to win something.  If it were legal, there would be 10,000 different lotteries out there.

    Does sound like a mix between a raffle and running numbers, doesnt it?

    How come you never see a headline like 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

      Besides being illegal, what is the big deal about having a computer as a prize? People want to win money...big money! Then they can buy any computer their heart desires.

        i wasnt saying "yes i am doing this" i said it was an idea of mine.


        i do plan on doing it some time, yes, but i was here just to ask a few general questions and find out what i would have to overcome later when i do plan on doing it.

        after seeing the replies i am going to have to only do this places that i am known to be legitimate and leave the other people, that think they might get screwed over, out.


        I do understand the unwillingness to part with $10 dollars for something like this, specially not knowing someone.

        Besides being illegal, I think you have broken one of the golden rules for success in business, which is:  "Give the people what they want."

        The people don't want computers.

        The people want whiskey!
