Finding a winning lottery ticket may soon be easier.

Players could become instant winners, or losers, without so much as picking a number, or scratching a ticket.

The Texas Lottery Commission is proposing a new type of lottery ticket that some say could resemble slot machines.

With this new ticket, all players have to do is hand their money to the clerk, and a lottery terminal spits out either a winning or losing ticket.

Proponents of the idea say it's a way to give instant gratification to players, and add a sales revenue source.

Those against the proposal say the results would be predetermined in the lottery's computer system- too closely resembling a video lottery system.

If approved, the new game could start as early as october second.
