The Illinois Lottery has seen a surge in sales since becoming privatized.  It is probably due to the new appeal and games implemented since the transition.  Today to add to the fresh new approach, if you click on, another update will be clear.  The exciting new website makes it easier to manuever, has much larger easy to read winning numbers and a splash of color.

In many instances, such as the Chicago parking meter buyout and private tolls, the takeover has been a disaster.  But this complete transformation of the Illinois Lottery is certain to receive a lot of praise.  Clearly the person now in charge, has a great team and is working toward a more refreshing marketing and promotions campaign.

Let’s hope the new changes increase the revenues generated for the school system and offers some type of bonus structure for the hard-working teachers out there.

“Hats off” to the new team, they have made incredible upgrades to the Illinois Lottery.  They also have the new “win for life” ticket which is a hit and other new varieties of instant games.  

Now if they could just let me win the millions…it would be simply perfect!

Call of Duty - Rocks!

Well, although I am clearly over the age of 18, but I still received Call of Duty for Christmas.  And most should know, it is definitely NOT designed for kids. 

I know what you’re saying, “how could this adult woman enjoy this game so much” well…the ingenious way they have produced this game is for starters.  But to add to it, offering players the ability to share their gaming experience on-line, makes it my TOP PICK of all times!  It is incredible and will get you hooked in the first hour. This game works for teens and adults, so the hype it caused was right on the money.

It has some violence, but is so clear and real it makes it a blast to play.  I have played for hours, and the fact that it has several varieties of games, will never allow you to get bored.  My very favorite is the Free For All option, where each of the games change, keeping it exciting and entertaining. 

Not sure if this is the wave of the future, but if this keeps up, kids will never need to see each other in person again.  They can play games from remote locations, text each other, or send an email.  Gotta go, so I can get my game on!
