In Illinois when you scan your tickets you get a message like:

Sorry Not A winner

or

Thanks For Playing Sorry Not A Winner At This Time.
_______________________________________________

Maybe (any state) the messages should be something like this:

Sorry, Not A Winner, Thanks For Helping Our 'Education Fund'  Green laugh

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

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.
