If those so called states have so called "clearer heads"  why do those people keep voting for democrats?

    So it is really about revenues in the end,  and not about anyone really winning.  People need to rethink about throwing their money away  on PB and MM's.

    Sorry to bust your bubble but if it is news to you that the lottery is a business and the purpose of a business is to make money (revenue) then you have no business! playing any game.

    Bang Head

    If there were never any winners no one would play, thus there has to be occasional winners and for the lottery that is the cost of doing business.

    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.

      State lotteries are thrilled when there is a big winner. They know that it keeps the dream alive for everyone else that plays. In fact, when I'm reading the Tx Lottery Commission meeting minutes, if sales are down because the MM and PB jackpots have been low, they're hoping for a big rollover run to pump up jackpots.

      I'm surprised that on a website about lotteries that there are actually people that just don't seem to grasp how lotteries work and what they are about. I have to laugh at some of the posts that imply that the lotteries purposely keep someone's favorite number from being drawn, or a number has been due (due? really?) and the lottery folks just won't let that number come out. If I thought for one second that a lottery could control what is drawn, I would find another hobby.

      Oh well.

          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.

          Are you for real?  I can't believe anyone in their right mind would say something like that.

              How do politics affect ping pong balls blowing around in a machine?

              You know ya'll would have a smidgen of credibility if you made sense.

              Politics are ingrained into everything.  You may not think there is any politics in lottery but there is.  As for credibility,  that goes both ways.  I notice things other people don't notice,  that shouldn't reduce my credibility.  Just because YOU think I don't make any sense,  that doesn't lower my credibility either.

                Nope it isn't.  The lottery needs people like you that think they will win the PB or MM jackpot.  People like you keep the scam going.  How do you like throwing your money away?

                  You assume much. I never said I think I will win PB or MM, like most players I hope to win or just maybe I'll win.

                  As far as the 'scam', all lotteries are called "Lottery" or "Lotto", not 'Gift Shop' as you want them to be.

                  The more you post the more your ignorance about these things shine right through.

                  How about calling the Wisconsin lottery and asking them if it is a business and sharing with us what they tell you.

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

                      Sully come on! You have been around long enough. He probably spent over $100 and thought that guaranteed him a win. He's projecting on the rest of us. He'll get over it and spend $200 on the next drawing.

                            I use to have I do not play MM or PB for my signature.  Apparently I have to put it back on for dunce's like you.
