      This is how the good folks in Georgia felt about my suggestion.

       

       

      Thank you for contacting the Georgia Lottery Corporation (GLC) and sharing your suggestion with us. We apologize for the delay in responding to you.

      We appreciate your feedback, and we will keep your inquiry in mind.

      We appreciate your interest in the GLC and our games

        This is the reply from Kentucky. Please email your lottery and as for a fat one!

         

        Thanks for taking the time to write with your suggestion. i had a chance this afternoon to talk it over with our president and CEO Arch Gleason. Arch was a two-term president of the World Lottery Association, so I knew he'd be familiar with the game (and I'd heard about it in passing as well).

        He agreed with your assessment that El Gordo is a fantastic game. In fact, a group that's been working for a year or two on a national game initially used El Gordo as a starting point to develop a game that would work well in all jurisdictions (although I think they've now moved away from that model).

        As for a Kentucky implementation, Arch's belief was that we didn't have enough players to support a game structured in the same manner. Spain has about 60 million people that could buy tickets for El Gordo, and our player base isn't nearly that wide. However the overall concept and idea of the game is good, and one we'll definitely take a look at.

        Thanks again for getting in contact, and best of luck to you!

          This is the reply I got from Montana.

           

          I agree with you, I’ve always liked El Gordo and think it would be a great idea for the U.S. lotteries.

           

          The U.S. lotteries are currently working on a National game. Once we have a National game I believe El Gordo would be a great idea to introduce at Christmas. To do this it would take the approval of all lotteries. I know it has been mentioned and I will forward your idea to our Lottery Director.

           

          Thank you for writing us. We appreciate hearing from players.

          The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986.

          In the past 24 years it has paid out over $400 million to

          players in prizes and returned more than $180 million to

          the State of Montana.

                  I was in Spain for Christmas and witnessed the success of the 'El Gordo' lottery. I also participated but did not win, but it was fun. The Spanish Christmas Lottery, known as 'El Gordo' in Spanish (or 'The Fat One'), has the biggest prize pool of any lottery in the world. It is a national lottery game organized every year since 1812. Because of the unique way El Gordo is played (the expensive tickets are broken down into 10 smaller tickets), it can be quite sociable to play the Spanish Christmas Lottery.
                   
                  I think such a lottery would be popular in the US at Christmas time, in addition to the usual lottery games. It would also raise additional revenue. State lotteries should consider introducing such a game, on a national level, for next Christmas. I would like other lottery players to write to their state lottery and recommend that US lotteries introduce a FAT ONE for next Christmas.

                  MT:

                  Thank you for your time, effort and research on the possible

                  intro of a game like El Gordo to this country. After I read

                  your feedback on this subject>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

                  I've determined it aint gona happen in the G@@D OLE USA any

                  time soon, although I WISH IT WOULD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
