Apparently Missouri Lotto (6/44) winners have a "third" choice: taking half of their prize in cash, with the other half going directly into an annuity.

I don't see a problem with it, because it gives winners an additional choice, while preserving the "true" cash option. However, I'd still like to see MO replace its 6/44 with "Hot Lotto", with HL allowing the additional payment option.

    I think most lotteries (unlike NY) are pretty cool about honoring winners' requests.

      If NY or Texas were to allow such an arrangement, they would have to print new betslips.
