Merge from Lotology[edit]

The article Lotology is a poorly sourced stub that would easily fit as a mention in this article. - SummerPhD (talk) 13:23, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

It's utterly unneeded. Send it AFD, since the prod was removed. oknazevad (talk) 13:40, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I am not proposing deletion, but a merge. - SummerPhD (talk) 13:51, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
And I'm saying it should just be deleted outright. I see no reason to merge a non-notable stub into this article. The most this article should have one sentence saying that some people collect old lottery tickets, using the Mental Floss article as a source. Anything more would be utterly WP:UNDUE. Even then, it's such a non-notable piece of trivia I would remove it from the article anyway. So the other article should just be deleted, not preserved in any fashion. oknazevad (talk) 14:54, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I'll let this run for any other opinions. If you would like to take it to AfD before then, feel free. - SummerPhD (talk) 15:51, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Page Restructuring[edit]

A decent amount of material on this page should be moved to Lotteries by country. The article also is very short on references, and has too much trivia.

Anyone here with any thoughts on potential changes? Power~enwiki (talk) 04:16, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
