While I am not a resident and do not play any of those games, I would defer my grade to the folks who are directly influenced by the Illinois Lottery system......NOW, as far as tying the lottery payouts to the budget being passed and you still sell tickets that are not being honored(over $25K), that is a legislative issue and for that, Leaders of the state of Illinois get an

    TN is all ready on the list with a "F" rating & they still have the PB & MM as Ball Drawn.

     

    Grade: F

    • Tennessee (20% true lottery drawings)
      True Drawings: Mega Millions, Powerball
      Computerized: Cash 3 Evening, Cash 3 Midday, Cash 3 Morning, Cash 4 Evening, Cash 4 Midday, Cash 4 Morning, Hot Lotto, Tennessee Cash

    Since MM & PB are Multi-State Lotteries and each State acts as an Agent for MM & PB, MM & PB should not be considered in determining the Grade for the State.

    Multi-State Lotteries should be Graded separately in the Multi-State Lotteries Report Card.

      That should say "each State acts as an Agent for the MM & PB jackpots", but are responsible for all the secondary prizes won in their state. The other side of the coin are the states offering the multi-jurisdiction Hot Lotto game, but have no other RNG drawings.

      The Report Card is consistent in the fact four and five minute Keno games are not part of it, but does include games like Five Card Cash that are 100% QPs and though very difficult to do, could have a live drawing.

        Wait a minute... Just read in the news that if an IL resident wins powerball or mega jackpot (multi state game) they won't get paid until the state figures out this budget mess...

        IL is screwing folks on the multistate games too?

          The jackpot is paid by the MUSL, lower tier prizes are pad by the state. Illinois isn't paying anything over $25,000.

          Don't forget the Illinois lottery's motto;

          ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

          Lep

          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.

            Right on the lower tier.... But I thought the jackpot wouldn't be affected... That too will not be paid out either even though the MUSL makes the payment.

            the article mentioned something about voucher payments to the state by the MUSL and then the state comptroller can't pay...

              I didn't know that part Romancandle, makes it kind of pointless to play.

              Since the money would be the winners and not the states, it's like the state is holding it hostage or something,

                Yeah CT, check it out... NBC News Chicago ran an article on it.  I don't know if I can post links here...

                People should be outraged, this is absolute bizzaro world now.

                The state should NOT be permitted to sell tickets anymore until this is resolved.  It's been nearly 4 months now- ridiculous!!!

                They just started selling tickets for a raffle game... ANOTHER game they most likely won't pay out!

                Some state representative got interviewed and said the exact same thing and was planning to push a bill for a vote to get payments back on line.

                    TN's lottery is way better than IL.  At least TN will pay you in full if you win lol.

                    A large scale boycott of all lottery sales in IL should be started, but players are too stupid or unwilling to boycott. 

                    If they did boycott and all that lottery money was cut off for a couple of months, I guarantee they'd change their tune & find a way to pay winners in full.

                      I Agree! In addition all the States that are Rated D because of MM & PB should be changed to F!

                          Lets see - With 9 draws under its belt using the RNG, here are 2 of the 9 draws in the IL Pick4 game.  Anyone, besides the RNG, like 1266 boxed in the IL Pick4 Game?????????

                          Interesting fact 1266 box only hit 3 times since 01/01/2011

                            Makes you wonder if anyone who had anything to do with going to RNG drawings was on those numbers, doesn't it?
