OldSchoolPa,

Maybe it's a marketing test and Illinois is the guniea pig for all the lottery states, or an upcoming national lottery.

Remember the 'loteria' tickets. That was before Northstar but the tickets were targeting the Hispanics.

I'm pretty sure that was a marketing test.

We can call PB and MM national lotteries but there can't be a true national lottery until every state has a lottery.

    As everyone knows, Illinois now allows Illinois residents to buy PowerBall, Mega Millions, and Lotto tickets online apart from the subscription service. However, the Illinois Lottery administrators are requiring a minimum $5 per game purchase in order to buy online. I find that highly irresponsible and hypocritical. The  Illinois Lottery will do PSAs touting people to play responsibly, and by responsible play, spending a buck on a given game is how I usually play. Only occasionally will I buy $5 or more in tickets for a given game...but I would never do this every time I want to play. So I have decided tmy buy subscription with my account balance and not entertain playing online until Illinois Lottery removes that $5 minimum purchase requirement for each game.

    1) HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY BY NOT PLAYING=SAVE YOUR MONEY.

    2) PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY TO AVOID THE LOTTERY INSANITY.IT IS OKAY TO DREAM.

      We can't have a true national lottery until we have a lottery that's run by a nation.
