I bought 3 $10 match4 tickets today, went to check my #'s tonight and was told there was no draw ! Why would washington state sell tickets knowing there was no draw ? Somebody owes me a refund or $10,000 ! This could have been might day to win !!! :(

Welcome to Lottery Post Yogi.  Guess you answered my question why Wa State Lottery website did not update any numbers for their state Lotto Game.  I was wondering what happened.  The Lottery must be low on their priorities.  What a bunch of hogwash.

    If you brought tickets for tonight's drawing, wouldn't you have to wait until tonight to check drawing results?  Something smells fishy about this post.

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

      GOVERNOR INSLEE NEEDS THE BOOT. 

      Interesting conversation with a courtesy counter clerk and this one is very knowledgeable.  She said all the stores got notification all lottery ticket sales will cease July 01 because of the budget.  The budget was worked on into the wee hours of Sunday night and submitted to the Governor's office Monday but he DIDNT SIGN IT UNTIL TUESDAY.  It takes times to get the lottery system up and running after a cease because it is a massive system.  She said once they could sell tickets they couldnt sell advance tickets, so more money lost.  One guy in line stated emphatically, he was on the golf course.  Maybe Inslee needs to meet up with the guy in the White House. 

      The clerks opinion is INSLEE shut down because of the budget.  She said doesnt he know how much money the state lost just on that one night?  She turned down a LOT of customers and she was just one of thousands of retailers.

        Just got back from my retailer, she had a slip of paper printed out from the lottery that said the advanced draws should be back up and running everywhere by july 26th. So basically about 3 weeks from now, man was this a colossal failure... 

        PS, as I'm typing this, my local news has picked up on the powerball matrix change. Going into the commercial, they said it will be harder to win. Interesting...
