      Charge more for QPs?

      What's next, selling the playslips?

      Renting the pencils?

      The terminal isn't 'doing any extra work' with a QP.

      Here's a better idea, charge players who tell clerks thir numbers instead of filling out a slip.

        I think QPs are about 4 times LESS effective than self picks.

        From now on I'm going to challenge 4 QPs to do BETTER than my self pick birthday numbers. 

        I will not play multiple draws, and I will post the numbers.

                I think they are considering a tax on each square of toilet paper used. (The first square is tax free)

                  I agree, but did not want others to misunderstand my post,

                  after all "hell no" was one of the choices, an a popular one at that. LOL

                        I reviewed your posts, nothing offensive, buy you were for charging for QP, definitely in the minority.

                          That could happen I guess but I'd much rather pay 5 or 6 cents tax on a ticket up front than $350,000 on a $1 Million prize at the other end.

                            Yeah, I agree the aussie method is better, and so much simpler,

                            but can we trust our lawmakers to not tinker w/ things ?

                            after all look at our tax code, 300,000 pages of which no single person understands the whole thing .

                             

                            and look at my own greedy state, passing a state lottery tax and making it retroactive, unmitigated greed !
