Great question, Jackie. To answer your question, no, that's definitely not what I meant. When I made that reference, I simply meant that as a lottery employee, I obviously am familiar with the lottery's operations. I don't have the ability to impact the outcome of our drawings or the outcome of a ticket in one of our games. But in our world today, perception is reality, and just the perception of lottery employees being able to play would cause some people to worry. So that is why we're not allowed to do so under the law.

What is meant by "knowing the ins and outs" of the lottery. Makes it sound like the drawings are rigged.
