It could have had a future!
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of all the television shows that I have seen, good or bad, I remember Lottery for some strange reason. It was never the hit that should have been. It taught us that life can change for the better or worse with wealth. It was interesting that these two men always had $5,000 with them and a check to unsuspecting people. I never bought that part of the story. I remember when Mabel King was a church organist and she was awarded her lottery winnings. I remember when a couple threw the money and check out into the garbage only to get another check but no 5,000 grand. I never understood why the amounts were different from week to week but I didn't care. It was one of the few shows that I remember from the 1980s that never gained enough fans to keep it on the air longer. IT was a decent melodrama with all the elements of watching guest stars become millionaires when they worried about money. If only Lottery was that true.
