haymaker,

Delaware has parlay cards again?

Way back when in the 1980s it was going to be the second state to have sports books (I don't know about now) but instead of getting the lines on the games from bookmakers they had people that worked for the Delaware lottery make them up.

The numbers were so out of whack that Vegas wiseguys, shift bosses, sports book operators, etc... were catching flights to bet the Delaware lines, and they middle a lot of games.

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.

    Yea, not sure how they're doing it, I decided to pass on it since I don't live there.

    The place I was in isn't a casino, just a discount cigarette store that sells lottery and stuff for smoking,

    so yea maybe it is by lottery people.

      Congratulate winner's from NY, NJ, FL, CA or to a lesser degree other areas of the country? Is it not fair to assume that most of winners would be coming from there? After all, the Lion's share of the jackpot money is thrown into the hat  from players doing business there. To say they don't deserve to win this often is to say " please buy tickets but under no circumstances are you allowed to win? Who thinks like that in this day & age?

      It's similar to saying Usain Bolt should be allowed to enter the 100/200 meters races* for show,  but not be allowed to at least win..

      because it is not them who won?  and the wins being from places not where they played ticked them off?  they also probably cheat at monopoly and scrabble.  AND are probably not good winners either.
