    how much less are we talking about here?

    Yea, we live in the most heavily taxed state, lottery and otherwise, so I would agree to 1% or less.

    Hopefully its a moot point and we go anonymous, but have not heard if that purposal has passed.

     just like when they passed the law for the 10.8% state tax on lottery,

    in the middle of the night they're not making a lot of noise about it.

      I am not afraid to buy tickets or to abide by the rules, I though the questions was "would you take less" that means it is an option.  As a option it would depend on the amount of money your talking and again the size of the jackpot.  If it's not an "option" then it becomes a moot point and we all smile with our big check at the press conference.

      Right, there is no legitimate option.  No lottery worth its salt would ever allow it.  The question was a hypothetical one meant to gauge opinion and stimulate discussion.  As I expected, over half the respondents to the poll have either given an unqualified yes or are willing to consider the option.

        mediabrat,

        It's am interesting concept but let's tweak it a little bit and make anonymous the 'defualt' and ask would you take more money not to remain anonymous?

        Maybe you could do anotrher poll.

        Just a thought.

        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.

          I Agree! It was no surprise to me that the question was framed in a way that would require the state to do less while receiving an increased amount of money.

                    I stand corrected, the term escaped me.

                          For a short stint I was a restaurant manager at a fine seafood/lounge restaurant called Callahan's.

                          I had some nice perks, all meals and drinks were on the house. Lover
