Store Clerks Steals

FYI, this is the players fault.
He should know the value of
his ticket BEFORE handing
it to a clerk. Sad but true.

Duplicate Winning Numbers

Computertized Draws
"Really" Random
& Trustworthy?

Yet another investigative story
showing WHY RNG's should be
banned for use by the Legislatures.
Can you imagine having the same set
of 5 or 6 numbers drawn in consecutive
draws? Of course, the lottery ignored it!
Remarkable findings - every one should

Lottery Lawsuit Granted Class
Action Status
Affects 7.2 Million
Tickets In 19 States

Lotteries have been taking advantage of players for
a long time. In so many ways and players have
no recourse. So I'm thrilled to see a court
allow players to fight back. Great story - let's
all hope there's justice for players in the end.

The Tax Break Shenanigans
of J. Winston Krause

In 2008, Commissioner Krause sued the
IRS to get a refund of interest and penalties
he had paid for a disallowed deduction
and income. The disallowed deduction ...
he bought Canadian dollars for $20K;
claimed he paid $2.8 million; he showed
a loss of <$2.7 million> yet he had
sold the Canadian dollars for $19.5K.
A 2010 5th Circuit of Appeals quote ...
"Krause's Tax Chicanery" A very
interesting and telling story about
the man who Chairs our Lottery.

On April 18, 2018, the players who were

About Those Awful Changes
To Mega Millions

If Players had consumer protection, rules like
this would not be adopted. Increased odds,
increased ticket price ($2), still offers a
break-even prize and a jackpot winner receives
whatever amount the Finance Group
determines - not the amount in the prize pool.
