Canadians Competing Against Us for Our Own Prize

    Canadians are buying up Powerball tickets on-line.   Should non citizens be allowed to win our prize ? What do you think ?

I don't think we can enter their lottery, so no, stay home you bilingual freaks.

We can't even boat in their waters without going through Customs. We don't do that to them. Stay home.

It's just a way to pay for our teachers union. Who cares. Sell to the Chinese to help educate our illegal aliens. Keeps our property taxes down.

Wonder what NYS will get as a cut of the 700 million dollar prize,and where it will go..probably disappear into the budget as "administrative fees" and no school improvements,no road improvements,no tax cuts..

10:11, perfect. Give them pretty colored money. I'll bet our lottery people let them buy tickets at par, too. Just like the jerks in Alex Bay, and PBS. Hey Public TeeVee, who do you thinks pays the freight when you devalue OUR money so you can take Canadian money at par? I will never, ever contribute to PBS again. It's bad enough that they skim off tax dollars to pay for their BS.

Our lotto - ha ... not since tickets are now avail on the Internet (as this news reports), but just imagine the Russian mafia sinking a few million in to buy a truckload of tickets.

With that prospect it ain't ours, babe.

No. Winners should only be citizens. Winners should have to prove citizenship. If a Canadian wins-she or he gets nothing. Same for lotto drawings in their country. Non citizens who enter should be disqualified with this current drawing or any other drawing. This is money to be won by Americans as money gained from it used here.
I'd be surprised if Canadians would let an American keep a huge pot of money there. I'm sure they would resent that too.
