If Illinois pays the raffle winners and not those who have won more than $25K - now reduced to more than $600 things might get quite interesting.

If they do pay raffle winners and justify by saying raffle winners out of what the raffle took in it will get even more interesting.

Since they're promoting the Halloween raffle if they don't plan on paying the winners immediately that's an insult to the players.

What do you say? Especially those in Illinois.

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.

    here its illegal to run a raffle or lottery if you dont already have the prizes.

    makes me think of the urban myth about the guy who raffled off his pay packet every payday at the factory he worked at.

    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

      savagegoose,

      It should be illegal here too, but evidently it's not in Illinois.

        One word comes to mind Coin... malfeasance.

        People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

          ...of funds while in office!

          Good point noise-gate.

          An Inside Edition piece said a lawyer says the money nor paid out is now $288 million.
