Regaining Femininity

Just wanted to post a blog site that promotes a place to blog about the effects of how Breast Cancer changes their lives. I have started this for the patients, survivors and loved ones who want to discuss their feelings. Thanks Kathy J.

you've broke me from sucking eggs. i've playrd the pick 3 in 4 other states and this is the biggest cheating i've seen i'm done.

The ODDs
The majority of people in the state of Missouri live in St Louis. Therefore, the majority of lottery players in the state live in St Louis. So WHY do the Majority of BIG winners live in RURAL areas? A lot of us in St Louis would like to know the answere to this Question!! WHY AREN'T THERE MORE BIG WINNERS IN ST LOUIS CITY???

Captain Lotto

You know, we can't win on this issue. People in small towns think that all of the winners are in the cities, and folks in the cities think that all of the winners are in small towns. It's random - winners come from all over the state.
If you look at the distribution of winners objectively, I think you'll see that the number of winners corresponds with population and sales.

I play the lottery all the time and I'm always checking the mo lottery site and clearly most winners are in small towns hardly ever in the inter city the most you can win in the city is 500.

Captain Lotto

Thanks for the note, but I think you're seeing what you want to see. The winners come from all over the state, including a large number of winners from St. Louis. Just check one of the many maps posted on this blog. Just yesterday, we announced a $89,500 Show Me Cash winner from downtown St. Louis.

Does anyone know where the show me cash 350k winners was from?

Any new second chance drawings in the future that will include twenty dollar scratchers as part of the promotion?

Captain Lotto

SMC winner was from Chesterfield.
Cliff - nothing planned for the $20 games that I know of, but there will be promotions with both NFL games, and the "Silver Anniversary" runs into January.

I have to say I have read a lot of comments all over this blog and most feel somewhat cheated - I tend to agree. I have been playing the $20 scratchers ever since you came out with the very first one. A lot of my purchases have been from the machines located at grocery stores - but occasionally from a counter at a QT or other gas stations. I had been playing the $5,000,000 dollar one ever since day one - and now before even one single top prize has been issued you guys have come out with 2 other $20 dollar scratchers - and completely knocked the $5,000,000 one out of every machine that I find. How can you do this? The other 2 $20 scratchers that you have come out with rarely even have a winner.... you should know - your players aren't stupid, and we pay attention to top prizes, and available prizes left. We don't just play - we do a little research! You have basically taken away a game before the top prize has been issued - its kind of like you are cheating us. I have to really look for retailers selling this game - which in my opinion lessens the odds that someone will win the top prize. WE ARE NOT HAPPY WITH YOU MO LOTTO!

Captain Lotto

Thanks for the comment, Kelly. I'm sorry to hear you're unhappy, but I understand your frustration.
We have a schedule for new games, and they come out regardless of how the current games are selling. In the case of $20 games, they have a lot of inventory and perhaps don't move as quickly as some of our others. Typically, many players move on to the newest game. Because space at retail is limited, especially for the larger tickets, not all retailers may stock your favorite.
We appreciate the feedback, and I'll pass this along to our instant product manager.
