Just wondering if the states publish how much is actually bet on each drawing for the jackpot games?   Possibly they don't want us to know.

    This is from the Missouri Lottery web page. I'm not sure if this is something like you're looking for, these are annual reports.

    (I'm on dial up and it would take way to long fcor them to download for me).

    Hope this helps.

    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.

        Texas Lotto Report site post that info. Example is a comparison of the number of Powerball tickets sold before and after the price change.

            yo coin, i had trouble upgrading cause my phone# had some prefix/suffix attached that no one knew why it was there,

            once removed h/s became available to me,then i said "do i get a prize for being the last person on dialup ?

            course they said no ,check w/ your phone co. some small detail is being overlooked.

            over the course of 2 yrs. i called abt. 6 times before i got someone who noticed the problem.

            he was able to correct it, but could not explain it, this happens to me in my job also, so i can relate.

            if you're the last, ask for the prize "maybe 1 year free service" LOL
