Any particular experiences that influenced your opinion?

Id have to say ok as well...We now get to register our draw tickets in all second chance drawings as well as our scratchers too. Also whenever you have a question and email them they get back to you within 24 hrs if not sooner...My only complaint is we havent had a jackpot winner for MM or PB in a couple years now........but I dont know if that's really their fault....or is it???

    The draw games are good... old style... live ping pong ball drops.

    The scratchers, that's a whole different story- downright shady as the politics in this state...

      Incompetent.

      Texas Lottery Commission is going to end up killing our 6 ball Lotto. Odds are about 1 in 25 million to match 6 out of 54 and the 2nd place prize is not even worth playing for. They've been asked by many players to go back to the original 50 ball matrix but they won't listen.

      Next week they got this new Extra! feature being added onto the game. It works much like Powerplay or Megaplier except the bonus is not as nice. $10,000 for a $2 play if you match 5 of 6. 

      Aparrently, jackpot increases will only go up $250,000 from now on too.

      I've had a regular set of numbers that I have been playing off and on for the past 18 years, but this new change to the game is a deal breaker. I get better odds playing for the 2nd place prizes on the two multi-state games anyway.

      Kumo I just got a text from TLC about the " Extra" way to pay Lotto Texas lol

      I Love Pink & Green 1908

        My State's Lottery Commission is...

        ...First in the nation!

        I think they do a good job, but they have had almost 50 years to get it right.

              Mass Lottery does well compared to others. The only thing I don't like is the matrix of the raffles. I wish we had raffles like the ones that are done by PA lottery. One raffle in July 4 and another in January 1 with maximum 500,000 tickets printed and 4 tickets winning a cool $1M cash in each.

              That money's gone fo ever

                How would you best describe your state's lottery commission?

                Connecticuts is a bigger piece of sh*t  than Rosa De Lauro...scratch games included

                I'm surprised. I do alot better with Conn  scratchers then NY. Our odds are horrible. I also like the different games they offer like 50/50 and LFL.
