Do you think Powerball will spread to the 6 remaining non-playing states?

With the representatives of Alabama finally seriously considering getting Powerball,

do you think the representatives of Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Utah or Nevada will

try to follow suit?

        If Alabama gets it then I can see Mississippi getting it but I doubt Utah & Nevada will ever get the lottery.

          Utah, no, the Mormons.

          Nevada, no, the casino industry.

          Hawaii, no, illegal gambling interests.

          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.

            Alabama is considering getting a lottery and probably will join PB and MM if they do. The other night with a $500 million plus PB jackpot, eight states had less than $1 million in sales. So even if they do get a lottery, it's doubtful Alabama will get enough in PB sales to cover a $1 million 5 + 0 winner.

            There are reasons those six states have no lottery and I seriously doubt the other five will follow Alabama.

              The Casino Cartel has a strangle hold on gambling in Nevada. It's hopeful for the other states.

              May the balls bounce in your favor!
