Used to be around $5000. a year was poor. I think its up to 8-$9000. now a days.What?

Probably around $20,000 a year now-a-days. "You know you're poor when you make less than the people on welfare."

    Every draw could be a raffle were at least 1 or 2 losers win a million....... lol. lol.

    Some people won't bother buying a ticket if all they can win is a million

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      I don't think the lottery is unfair.  I just think that you have to be lucky with your entertainment dollars and remember that it is a game of chance. Don't bet the farm on it BOB!  as always good luck to you and everyone else here at lottery post on games of chance!-weshar75

        All these casinos,lotteries,online advertising,and get rich quick at home work are a SCAM ! Do you know that every time you click on website ad,that person makes money of you? You know how many websites are out there that promise you to work at home online that are nothing else but a rip-off? I encounter a website where you can make ligit money online..They do pay,but come one they pay you 1 or 2 cents for every completed offer or survey..plus you have to watch tons of videos to get more points...Waste of time... other legit website...you collect points for watching offer videos,do surveys,answer personal questions and polls.You can collect points and win prizes..But before you can claim some real good prize..it will take you like 1 year to do so.I am not that mad that i dont have a lot of money,is only that there are not a real good,real and faster ways to make money.You see a lot of websites,online ads,that offer you a discount and good deal..even if they will offer you a better deal ,they will still make money of you....you bring a business more costumers thru affiliate program that money websites have,you gonna get only small profit from this,and they make real money.Go to any website like youtube,or fox news..you see ads all over the website,who actually clicks on these ads? come one people have no money today. Go on craigslist...hundreds of items for sale? are you lucky,its gonna be yours? ads everywhere today !! millions of websites,and online stores...when its gonna end?

        LOL. I think your head is going to explode. You should probably take a break. I'll also agree that the prize structure needs some adjusting.

          how about an end of year raffle, where all the losing tickets people have purchased. well ok all th tickets pople have perchased have a chance?

          would also save on litter. maybe a 5c entry cost from the prize pool, per ticket. snd  make it something where ALL the prize money goes to prizes. and lots of small ish ones and a few dozen $1 mill prizes.

           

          sure its bound to be a hassle. keeping tickets out of the sun for a whole year. but i like the idea of buying 1 ticket and going into more than 1 prize draw.

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

            Well in that case the "poor" are doing very well. That's almost what the AZ lottery pays to live the life of your dreams on $1000. a week for a year..... Yes Nod

              Like most other losers. I want instant gratification. I'm talking free money for me as soon as the drawing takes place. I want money now, they could even announce the block of ticket numbers the winners will come from BEFORE the actual drawing so all the losers can get ready to pick up some cash the next morning??

                Yeah, especially at a ticket price of $2. Some buffoons will wait for a $500 million jackpot to play. LOL

                  Bob just need a small winner or two................

                  Once he gets a taste of being a winner he will likely trumpet the lotteries praise from the roof tops

                      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.

                      People, stop feeding the trolls!  Shifty

                        The lottery was built to be unfair.  It's called odds.  But odds that a lot of people are trying to beat.

                        The lottery is NOT a tax on the poor.  By calling it a tax, you are calling it mandatory, which is what taxes are.  But the lottery is NOT mandatory, therefore calling it a tax highly inaccurate.

                          You want to win money in the lottery there is one thing you got to do. Put some $kin in the game. There is no free ride in the lottery. Lotteries spread the wealth to those who put $skin in the game and have a winning ticket. There is no refunds if you lose.

                          You have a choice. Play or not to play.

                              Bob, the Lottery should be played for fun. When it no longer becomes fun to you then you should stop playing
