Wouldn't every state lottery be better than the PB and MM?

Someone told me that if the states and all of them did a lottery differently than the PB and MM more people would hit and depending on taxes. 

 

I actually agree with that in terms to instead of a national lottery but state by state.  Although I know for a fact the lotteries make their money. 

 

For the more experts and members on this site has anyone tried on their phones or through internet as far as playing or is it just make sense to just play on paper and at those machines?

    Do you actually read what you post before clicking the button?  I really can't understand what you're asking or point you're trying to make.

    I like pie.

    There's only a handful of states that don't participate in MM/PB, so they're basically national lotteries.

    As far as your final thought, there's a 'Camelot' poll post in the 'Lottery Discussion' sub-forum that covers it.

      I think I have a better grasp on what you're trying to ask.  You're asking for a national lottery format that does not rely on existing state lottery terminals.

      Kind of like all the 'Fantasy Sports Betting' sites.  My favorite ad is the one where kid states he "only paid in a hundred bucks and already won over a million dollars".  As his eyes are twitching like he's having an epileptic convulsion.  Seems legit.

      The answer is NO.  The only reason I play state lotteries is because there are State Lottery Commissions that somewhat uphold the integrity of the game.  If they thought a Federal Lottery Commission (read Government) would be trusted, it would have already been implemented.

      The reasons some states don't allow MM/PB is that they're either too moral or want to stifle state/city gambling competition.

      Sorry for being a little abrasive, but just go back and read what you type and see it if it makes clear sense.  There are obvious word choices and punctuation that would allow people to understand what you're asking without having to decipher it.

        Sorry about that.  That's how I was raised.  But can understand.  The lotteries have mobile options too.

            Somebody from California won a California Super Lotto Plus Jackpot worth $7 million dollars on the last draw of 2015. The winning numbers were 3-4-6-25-26 Mega Number 22.

              Not every state has a jackpot game.
