No way would anyone come out ahead with those "need cash now" companies. Think a dime on a dollar (slight exaggeration but not much).

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 know nothing about those companies and what they pay. It was just a thought. That's why I called and ask them but I got know answer back.

      Option 3 has appeal, above a certain JP level. 

      Illinois has the money, they just can't release it on a technicality.  It's not a main factor in my thinking. 

      However,  thinking about where interest rates and income tax rates are likely to head, better to pay the tax now and keep investments short term, so when rates go up you can take advantage.
