Well, I wouldn't exactly say I'm a kid. I am a senior in high school though. And Todd, I still don't see why you are giving me such a hard time about working at the lottery. I don't work for the lottery or a lottery retailer. I work at a BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO!

    Here's why it seems as if you may not be winning people over too well. You are pretty much only posting about ONE THING. Look at the threads for other topics, and post your comments on them as well.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      This was taken from the PA lottery website apparently this game was brought about by the people of PA who requested a game like this. So if your feeling let down because of this game you should be blaming the people who requested it. If it's development took almost 2 years. How come you Pennsylvanians didn't step up to the plate and protest it's prize structure. Granted 36 grand after taxes isn't a huge amount but it will go a long way towards funding some young peoples retirement and help the working class afford better belongings and I could think of a lot of other things I could do with that kind of money.

       

       

      From the PA Lottery:

      LUCKY FOR LIFE LOTTO responds to suggestions made by Lottery players, who wanted an online jackpot game with a life prize, much like the Lotterys popular Win $1,000 A Week For Life instant ticket game, said Lottery Executive Director Ed Mahlman.  In addition to the lifetime prize, LUCKY FOR LIFE will offer the Pennsylvania Lotterys first instant-play feature in an online game.
      Mahlman said LUCKY FOR LIFE LOTTO is part of the Lotterys ongoing effort to create innovative new games.  He said LUCKY FOR LIFE was under development for about two years.

        Well, first of all, it is prudent to be suspicious of anyone claiming to be one thing or another on the Internet.  That is common sense.

        Secondly, I have never met a Blockbuster Video employee who makes it a point to make literally every single post an advertisement for one particular lottery game.

        A "regular" lottery player would try to understand why other people feel the way they do, and consider that maybe a lottery with a relatively weak track record like the PA Lottery may have come out with another game with a less-than-popular payout structure.

        You even post PA Lottery press release materials on this site, which you have done since your first post.

        I have an idea for you: start engaging in some other topics (other than Lucky for Life Lotto).  If you insist on only posting ad-type materials about an unpopular lottery game, then my opinion will not change.

        And don't give me garbage about giving you a hard time.  I have told you all this in PMs, and you still insist on posting this stuff and not participating in any other discussions.

            Thank goodness the second drawing did not produce a "lifetime loser".

              yeah. i think the "new game" feeling is starting to wear off.

              I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                Third game: no top prize either.

                          same here.  the fixed prize structure is not a good idea.  the very low top prize is not a good idea, and the price is bad.

                          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                              and there will only be one top prize winner.
