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 !

We have been betrayed so many times I think its a sport of some kind for lawmakers to screw us.....

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

    With all the talk lately about which has BETTER ODDS.... (QP or self pick) I thought this was the topic. lol.

        In a word - no.

        They need an ever-increasing supply of money to fuel their spending fanaticism.

                  Apparently you prefer QPs to Self picks 4 to 1.

                    Ronnie say it isn't so!

                     

                    You could set back the cause 10 years.

                     

                    I trust the 4:1 ratio is to prove how great the ONE self pick is.

                        Ronnie's MM QP almost paid for his ticket.  Hope he has even better luck tomorrow night with PB.

                            Quick Picks versus Self Picks has become a hot button political issue among lottery enthusiasts.

                             

                            It has gone to the extent where both sides have employed lobbyists to defend their respective agendas.

                             

                            As far as QPs are concerned, the terminal is doing all the work. Shouldn't QP players pay more for their tickets?
