The reason why i say this is because only few are going to win.Can you imagine how much money people spend everyday to win something? i will say millions of dollars.The money you spend either supports the jackpot winner and the rest go for lottery.Same thing with casinos.You giving away your money.Even if you win,that winning money comes from someone who lost before.I think that in lottery more people should win and we should have better chances to win.This is like a one big scam.They make millions and only few is going to win.Total rip-off.

    I don't hear you screaming out in pain, because someone is twisting your arm to play..

    Gambling is fun to some and not so to others. If you don't like the game/s, then don't play them...!

      You are right on the money Bob.

      The lottery should allow at least 95% of us loyal players to win the jackpots 100% of the time.

      Why should they be allowed to rake in all that loot, who gives a toot about their evil motives. What?

      I'm writing to my congressman today, and encourage others to do so. This scam must come to abrupt end.

      The nerve of these guys!   Let It All Out

        Gambling is fun? come one ,are you for real? some people lost all their life savings,some commit suicide,some peoples lives are in ruins and your telling me,gambling is fun? Your gambling money goes for a jackpot winner or for a state... if you dont know what to do with them..give it to poor people.

              Yes it is. And if you or anyone lets it take over your life, then you need help. As I stated before if you don't like playing a game/s, then DON'T play.

               More people are in it for the thrill of Victory rather the agony of Defeat...!

                Bob, you're not the only one thinking that way, some of my family members have suggested the same thing and to correct the situation they suggest I send all my lottery money to them instead and they will waste it for me.  They also suggest I limit the amounts I send them to $12,000 a year thus saving me and them from paying gift taxes on it.

                    Poor people already have enough money to waste, that's why they are poor and giving them more money to waste isn't going make them rich either.

                      That's why i Primarily play the pick-3 games. The odds of the JP games are too high and rediculous for me, although once in a blue moon I'll buy a couple of QPs just for shirts and giggles.

                          I wish i could be a lottery owner here in Illinois.I would do something to make sure that even more of the losers could have something.Sometimes i cant believe like for example when there is a huge jackpot in powerball or mega millions that only like 1 sometimes rarely 2 players win the jackpot.All these people that played across the country who spent millions of dollars goes only for 1 or 2 lottery winners.What are the odds you gonna be that lucky jackpot winner? you have better odds that you gonna be hit by the lightning.
