Thats the direction the Country seems to be going in...

Yep, until they run out of other people's money, then it gets worse.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

          Pickoneforme has it right, but he's after the wrong state!  No one in California can even win because of New York.

                No, it's a tax on everyone who plays it.  It just that those who continue to play and complain are stupid.

                  So according to jj the states that produce the most revenue for the lottery should be cut off for a year.

                  Should that ever happen guess who the first one to post about jackpots being too small would be.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      How very interesting.  So those quick picks could be picks by the main frame to avoid hitting winning numbers.

                      No, as I understand it, the easy picks are done at the terminals.

                      Also, computers and people don't know the winning numbers until they are actually drawn.

                        QPs pretty much match the probability of the total and the results on USA Mega reflect it. How do they avoid matching numbers when they don't know which numbers will be drawn?

                          A person has to be in a state to win!

                          Looks like your thinking has moved over from the dark side on this topic.

                            You mad bro ?...and why are you only going after NY. What about sates that win often like CA, FL, NJ.

                            Well the moment CA,NJ,FL wins- he will start to wind up the whining machine. Just you wait and see.Its fortuitous.

                              If a state wins a PB or MM drawing, sales of either game should be shut down for one year in that state. This gives anyone not in New York a fair shot at winning, and it shuts down cheats.

                              LOL - I love it!  so all the revenue from the sales of PB or MM in that state would be lost... so the state is punished for having a winner.  amazing!  I'm certain all of the member states will leap at the chance to ratify this change!
