 If l give my money to the clerk or feed it to one of the QP machines and it spits out my lottery ticket and come to find out it's the winner, l WANT to get paid, paid with REAL money. Illinois Lottery Commission is taking its winning players down a dark path.

I Agree!

    This is rich, Illinois has two state fairs, one in Springfield and one further downstate in Du Quoin.

    The one in Du Quoin is going on right now and tomorrow, Sep 4, is Illinois Lottery Day at the fair.


    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.

      I spoke to a clerk today, she told me sales on jackpot games are way down.

      People are also playing scratchers with top prized less than $25,000 and not too many are buying the Win for Life games.

      Good!  Just maybe the state government will get the hint about their screw-up!
